@justclickindiva reaches 100 days of saving backwards!

Yes, regular Saturday Saver Club member @justclickindiva reached 100 days of savings backwards. That's 200 days of savings! Congratulations @justclickindiva, check your wallet for 5 LBI for your great achievement! Everyone, drop by @justclickindiva's profile and show some love 😍.

When will @susie-saver hit 530HP?

Here's the bets on when @susie-saver will reach 530HP:
Week 30 - Saturday 24 July - @bashadow
Week 31 - Saturday 31 July - @justclickindiva @ericburgoyne @jfang003
Week 32 - Saturday 7 August - @bearmol @riandeuk @phoenixwren
Week 33 - Saturday 14 August - @gillianpearce
The book is closed now - let's see what happens!

Well, @susie-saver hit 530HP last week, and we had a winner. This week @susie-saver qualified for Minnow status. I powered up just over 2 Hive to reach 534HP and get over the threshold of 1,000,000 vests! I'm keeping the rest of this week's savings to take part in HivePUD on 1st August. Extra EDS giveaways for @jfang003, @ericburgoyne and @justclickindiva who guessed this week. Check your wallets 😍.

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 24%.

643 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, 31 July, was 14.63p. Next week, we'll be saving 15.12p and by Saturday we'll have saved 239.77p (that's 23,977p 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 - 14.63p buys 34.75 Hive.
665 Hive saved in 28 weeks (565 Hive powered up, the remainder invested in EDS and EDSM)! Plus we're earning 3.22% inflation on powered up Hive, 24% on EDS tokens and a little on curating and posting!

@susie-saver has powered this week's savings; she's also been voting following a curation trail. She's reached her first milestones of 530HP and Minnow status. Her next goal is 1,000HP.

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

This week's Golden Pig Tip:

"Lost your savings mojo? Accidentally went out and bought £239 of Bobbi Brown cosmetics? 😂. Never mind, get back up, dust yourself off and start saving again today! Remember, start small and start today. The Saturday Savers Club is here to support you every Saturday!

And today is always a good day to start saving - you can start on Day 1 or make up the first thirty-one weeks to catch up with @susie-saver.

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.
