What an awesome idea for this week's savings challenge. I will participate in PART 1 of the Summer Challenge - 100 DAYS OF SAVING BACKWARDS.
I already got started on my reverse saving on April 11th. Below is my weekly update post for the Saturday Savers Club:
Also congrats to all who participated in the comments and/or created content for your Saturday Savers Club weekly savings progress. It's great to see so many participating.
@susie-saver has powered this week's savings bringing her account to 66.9 HP. What do you think her next savings investment should be?
Suggestion: I feel that you should continue to power up until you reach Minnow. The purpose of your account is to grow it. Powering up is one way to accomplish that with increased HP, you can earn more. That's not to say power up exclusively, but include it at the same time in whatever other investment you may contemplate.
Finally, The Golden Pig Tip for this week.
I agree with @edicted. The best way to save is with solid investments. Talking about gambling brought back memories of my mom urging us to take her to BINGO each weekend. I wasn't really paying attention, but I don't think she won more than she lost. I feel that it was the thought of the potential to win big was what drove her to participate each week. She'd have numerous bingo cards all spread out over the tiny space allotted to her. She even solicited us to help dab the colored ink on her numbers. It wasn't something I enjoyed, but obeyed instructions. It was sort of boring. Many weekends she'd leave with empty pockets. Her comment would be, "well, next week will be better. Did you see I was only one number away from bingo?" I didn't have a response for it, and her big win never materialized, but she kept going. It think it was just something to occupy her time.
Take care every and have a good rest of your weekend.
