This week elimarie has won 12 months membership to the Savings Vault with this great hint:
Get set for a whole year of saving for under $10!
Organisation is the key to saving and I am all ready for a brilliant and prosperous year after I managed to save over $50 on the perfect 12-month planner! I had been coveting some of those expensive life planners, but they cost a minimum of $60 and I wasn't even that fussed on some of the designs and layouts. So I decided to make my own version, which I really love, for a fraction of the price!
I purchased an A5 folder from Officeworks for less than $5.00, and with my trusty student diary ($2.00 from the newsagent and it comes in a layout I love), I pulled it apart and put holes in the pages with my hole punch. I also trawled through Pinterest and found links to monthly calendars, meal planning pages, exercise schedules, colouring pages and goals lists. I then added some A5 'to do' notepad pages and some plastic pockets. To finish, I decorated my planner with positive quotes and stickers. All up it cost me less than $10 and is exactly what I want. This, combined with my bullet journal, will have me set for the New Year, and I can continually add to it. I can't wait for the New Year!
The best way to win a membership is to write helpful, interesting, unique and error free hints. You need to include how much money you saved, how you saved it, what you did and how much you paid. The more detail you provide the more likely you are to win a 12 month membership.
You do not have to answer all the questions to enter the competition. Each hint entered is judged separately. If you send 5 hints. They will be considered 5 separate entries. Which means you have a much higher chance of winning by entering one or two top quality hints than if you entered twenty brief, vague tips. Quality is everything!
If you do not have an answer to a question, or it does not apply to you, please leave it blank.
Thanks for giving it a go. Good luck!
