Money Tip: Do Get This Creative With Saving Tricks

While chatting with a girlfriend over a leisurely al fresco lunch this weekend, she told me about a friend of hers who managed to pay for an entire Fiji honeymoon by getting creative with her saving. During the year leading up to their wedding, she and her fiancé saved all of their empty bottles and would periodically exchange them at the recycling center for cash. Every cent of those proceeds went into their honeymoon fund, and when all was said and done they had enough to pay for their romantic island getaway.

This saving solution isn't for everyone, especially those who don't go through a lot of bottled beverages, but it does suggest there are little saving tricks in all of our lives just waiting to be discovered.
