I remember years ago our church challenged us to try and create an extra $5 per day. They gave examples of giving up our daily coffee shop stop. Because I didn’t get daily coffee, I instantly assumed that I wasn’t wasting any money and there was no feasible plan for me to find an additional $5 per day in my budget. We were living paycheck to paycheck. Money was just too tight. There was no way we could swing it. Maybe it would work for other people, but certainly not us. If you feel the same way, I’m about to drop some truth bombs about where your $5 per day might be hiding and show you just how huge of an impact saving $5 per day can have on your entire life!
Investing has always been something that made me nervous. It all seemed too complicated and far beyond my math comprehension. Technically I shouldn’t even be worried about investing right now because we are still working to pay off our debt. However, there is an investment app that just seemed too simple to pass up. Acorns is a spare change investment app that rounds up your purchases to the nearest dollar and then invests that money for you! If you have wondered as long as I did about how Acorns work and whether or not it’s actually worth it, I have it all laid out here for you. Plus, I will show you my personal slow-start simple investment plan to turn $50 per month into $150,000.
