Hello Everyone,

Welcome to Saturday Savers Club with Susie-Saver!

New! 20-week Autumn Savings Challenge

Just to keep everyone fresh and excited and to support our new savers, we're going to have an extra 20 week Autumn savings challenge. By the end of the year, we will have saved 10,080p (or whichever unit of currency you are saving in).

As well as growing the @susie-saver HP each week with the regular year-long savings challenge, we're going to be adding pennies each week to the Hive savings account. For ease (and to end with just over £100 by year end), I've combined Weeks 1 and 2 to give us a nice round twenty-weeks:

Week NoAmountWeek NoAmount

If you check over on @susie-saver's wallet, this week's 105p bought 2.17 HIVE which you can see in the savings wallet. See the Golden Pig Tip below to see what @susie-saver is saving for!

New - Wednesday Wellbeing Club

This is a challenge for anyone who wants to make a lifestyle change (eat well, move more, sleep better) hosted by @shanibeer over in the Natural Medicine community. Anyone is welcome to join 😍.

Now then - this week's winners!

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%.

640 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, 14 August, was 15.61p. Next week, we'll be saving 16.10p and by Saturday we'll have saved 271.48p (that's 27,148p 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 - 15.61p buys 32.25 Hive.
730 Hive saved in 33 weeks (630 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.

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:

@susie-savers number 1 Golden Pig Tip is start small and start today: that's what we do in the Saturday Savers Club! The number 2 Golden Pig Tip is to have a goal for your savings - what are you saving for? @susie-saver is saving the 365 challenge for a trip to the Caribbean. Now, she's saving the Autumn challenge for treats over the winter holiday.

And today is always a good day to start saving - you can start on Day 1 or make up the first thirty-three weeks (or join the Autumn Challenge) 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.
