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%.

638 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, 21 August, was 16.10p. Next week, we'll be saving 16.59p and by Saturday we'll have saved 287.97p (that's 28,797p 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 - 16.10p buys 30.43 Hive.
760 Hive saved in 33 weeks (660 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:

Have a NO-BUY month!

The NO-BUY month will run from 1st until 30th September. You set your own rules about what you are allowed to buy or not buy during the month. Here's @susie-saver's rules for September:

    Food - but aiming to finish up packets, tins and jars in the pantry, food in the freezer and from the garden.
    Essential toiletries and housekeeping replacements.
    Essential repairs or replacements.
    1 eat-in or takeaway each week, including coffee/going to the pub.
    2 theatre performances or films during the month.
    Adult education classes/workshops.
    Postage and/or carriage.
    Travel or fuel.

    No shop-bought non-essential treats.
    No books, stationary, yarn, fabric or notions.
    No "new" (ie not replacements) clothes.
    No "new" (ie not replacements) furniture, household items, telecoms.
    No seeds or plants or houseplants or cut flowers.

This is definitely going to be a make do and mend month, plus home-made birthday cards (there's about ten birthdays in September)! Goal: save 10% of normal monthly expenses.

Two planned expenses are a pair of winter boots and, possibly, a Hive meet-up. Savings have already been put aside for these earlier in the year, so they won't come from September's monthly expenses.

NO-BUY Challenge

Are you going to join the NO-BUY month? What are your rules going to be? How much are you aiming to save during September? Let us know in the comments!

And today is always a good day to start saving - you can start on Day 1 or make up the first thirty-four 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.
