Hello Everyone,

Welcome to Saturday Savers Club with Susie Saver. So much news this week including a new Challenge and the winner of last week's LBI Hot Savings Tip!

Before we start - did you get any Bitcoin this week? Pleased or sorry? And another question for you: which is the best deal - to stake LEO or to invest LEO in CUBLIFE? What's your opinion? Answers in the comments below for the chance to win EDS tokens!

LBI Winner - Hot Savings Tip

We had six hot savings tips last week:

  • bulk buy things you need when the price is low
  • have adequate storage/refrigeration to preserve your food
  • reduce/quit drinking coffee and sugary drinks
  • cut out takeaways and make your own at home
  • grow your own vegetables - even in small spaces.

And this one from @dagger212 about saving time by doing miserable jobs when you're feeling (self-inflicted) miserable. @dagger212 says:

I do have to say, it really is quite pleasing to realize I've completed a task even though I was miserable while doing it. I was miserable anyway. So, might as well get something miserable off my to-do list.

We had another hot tip which is our featured Hot Savings Tip below, and a brilliant idea from @erikah about a side hustle to make money - thanks, @erikah, we'll be using this idea as a prompt for a future challenge!

So, seven people were entered in the Wheel of Names: @erikah, @cwow2, @ericburgoyne, @missaj, @dagger212, @jfang003 and @justclickindiva ... and we have a winner:

Congratulations @justclickindiva - 5 LBI coming your way!

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 22%.

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, 22nd May, was 9.73p. Next week, we'll be saving 10.22p (oooh, double digits 🤑) and by Saturday we'll have saved 111.29p!

Each week, I'll be buying Hive for @susie-saver's account with the pennies we've saved.

Here's this week's results - 9.73p buys 23.91 Hive.
Nearly 259 Hive saved in 21 weeks! Plus we're earning 3.22% inflation on powered up Hive, 22% on EDS tokens and a little on posting and curating!

@susie-saver has powered this week's savings; she's also been voting following a curation trail and started posting using @actifit app, bringing her account to 164.809HP. She's aiming for 500HP and is a quarter of the way there. What's your goal?

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 😁.

Sign up here with us to start your savings journey:

  • just leave a comment below if you want to join the challenge.
  • follow @eddie-earner so you never miss a post (Eddie has lots of ideas about how to make money - he's the earner, I'm the saver - you'll like his posts).
  • share this post if you think your followers might be interested.

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

Here's this week's Golden Pig Tip from @jfang003 who wins an extra EDS:

For me, my favorite way of saving is obviously to put down anything that isn't an exact necessity (food and etc) on a list. When I come back a few days later, if I still believe I need it then I buy it. This stops me from any impulse buying anything I don't need because I felt like it that day.

And today is always a good day to start saving - you can start on Day 1 or make up the first twenty-one weeks to catch up with @susie-saver. Or join our 100 day savings backwards challenge 😁.

That's it for this week. Hope you've enjoyed it and look forward to seeing you next Saturday with progress so far and our next Golden Pig tip.
