Welcome to Saturday Savers Club with Susie-Saver!
Festive Savings - LBI Giveaway
Well, Saturday Savers just six weeks to go until the Challenge and the Festive Season is gearing up. We're going to have a little giveaway for the next two weeks. This week we want to know your top tips for savings on gifts. Next week, we'll be looking at your tips for savings on food, drink and decorations over the festive period.
So, what are your top tips for economical gifts that bring pleasure? I've seen a couple of brilliant ideas:
- using hot chocolate as a base, add your own flavourings, pack in a pretty jar, add a ribbon and label with instructions how to make up.
- another one was making little gift baskets with hand-knitted or crocheted guest towels and face cloths.
I remember as a youngster at this time of year, we were busy at the family clubs I belonged to making gifts to sell at the Christmas Fayre. Bath Salts (crushed soda crystals plus essential oils and some food colouring) and Peppermint Creams (icing sugar mixed to a thick paste plus peppermint oil and some food colouring - notice a theme? 😂) were favourite, the results packed in jars or boxes with tissue paper and ribbons around the outside.
Next door, my great aunt was always in charge of a stand called "Bunty Pulls the String", a variation on Lucky Dips, with one box with presents for boys, each one wrapped and with a long string attached, and another with presents for girls. You'll never guess the colour of the boxes! One of my duties was wrapping all the little gifts donated by members of the community and adding the strings.
Tells us any childhood memories about this time of year for added giveaway goodness 😍.

Thank you for taking part in Saturday Savers Club, everyone!
What's been happening in your world this week? anything exciting or fun? Tell us in the comments - you could win some EDS tokens 😁.
More about EDS tokens
EDS tokens are a low-risk income token, ideal for people who want to save. There were only 20,000 originally and they were all sold at 1 Hive each, with guaranteed earnings of 12% each year. You can now acquire EDS tokens through the EDS Miner token.
Earnings come from powering up and leasing out the Hive that came from selling the tokens, plus earnings from posts and comments each week. EDS pays out every Monday evening. Last week the pay out was equivalent to 23%.
556 EDS Miner tokens left!
Back to business ...
We're going to be here every Saturday through the year growing a little savings honey pot, if you have plans for saving or getting to a different place this time next year - maybe $5 Hive by the end of the year 🤑?
Whatever it is, stick with Susie Saver through the year and we'll get there. Along the way, we'll share lots of tips and tricks for saving and how to get the knack of making your money work for you and not the other way round.
Let's Get Started

We're using the 365 Penny A Day Challenge framework for the Saturday Savers Club. We're aiming to save £667 worth of pennies by the end of the year.

Okay, let's check in ...
1. Check Progress
Each week, we're going to check in through this post and see where we are up to. Our target for today, 13 November, was 22.98p. Next week, we'll be saving 23.47p and by Saturday we'll have saved 529.25p (that's 52,925p just compounding a penny a day)! 😁.
Each week, I'll be buying Hive for @susie-saver's account with the pennies we've saved.
Here's this week's results - 22.98p buys 27.75 Hive.
1070 Hive powered up in 46 weeks and the remainder invested in EDS and EDSM! Plus we're earning 3.22% inflation on powered up Hive, 20% on EDSM, 23% on EDS tokens and a little on curating and posting!
How much did you save this week? Did you meet your target? Or did you save even more?
Being accountable to another person or a group is a great way to motivate yourself to save (or anything you want to achieve). Of course, you need the right kind of people around you - ones that think what you're trying to do is worth doing ... or at least fun 😁.

2. The Golden Pig Tip

Every week, we're going to share a Golden Pig Tip for saving. By the time you've tried them all you'll have £670 saved.
This Week's Golden Pig Tip
For the end of the year, we will continue to promote the EDS income token fund. Here's how you can help:
- Vote for @eddie-earner posts - all Hive, HBD and H-E token rewards on posts are powered up to grow the EDS fund and increase the Hive income that is given out every week - it's the magic of compounding combined with a virtuous circle combined with time! Never miss a post by setting up an autovote with Hive.Vote.
- Carry a little notice about Saturday Savers Club and EDS in your signature at the bottom of every post (See below for sample text and check the bottom of @shanibeer's posts for an example).
- Write your own post now and then about the Saturday Savers Club and EDS and why you are involved or talk about it in your monthly Hive Power Up Day post.
