Nearly 9,000 women signed up for the Febusave 2010 campaign, for example:
- 2,307 pledged to give up buying lunch
- 1,118 pledged to give up treats
- 162 pledged to give up taxis
These might not seem like much; but little changes like this can make a real difference to your finances.
My pledge was to stop using the car to drive to work every day. The savings from that are now going into paying my mortgage. This means that it will be paid off several years earlier and save us thousands of dollars in interest payments. I’m going to keep up this new habit of savings going even after Febusave is over. It’s been a really good learning experience.
You can see what some of the other bloggers have shared via the #febusave hash tag on twitter.
Don’t forget! If you have registered for Febusave, at the end of February simply complete the online entry form at the Febusave site and answer “what was your secret to achieving your FebuSave goal?” in 50 words or less and you could win $5000!
