Well, this is fairly anti-climactic, but at the end of January, my $1 a day account has reached a grand total of…. $31!
I’ve done some re-thinking of this plan, and I think what I’m going to do is simply sock away $1 a day all year for a total of $366, and see what kind of interest I can earn. I was initially planning to also calculate savings made by smart spending choices, but well, that turned out to be a very difficult task. So instead, I will save $1 a day all year and show you just how easy it can be to build up a savings account. Next year, perhaps I’ll try for $2 a day. And so on.
