Cash in your change jar
Whether it’s a change jar, change drawer, or gallon zip lock full of pennies. Cash it in and see how much you have. Coin Star a is a great place to cash in change or some banks and credit unions provide these service for free to their members.

Give Give Give. I cannot stress this one enough. When you start bringing in extra money but share with others and put a tenth of that in the collection plate. You want that extra money to keep rolling in right….
