If you lived in Las Vegas last month and put ten dollars into your savings account each day the temperature reached 100 degrees Fahrenheit, you would have a surprising amount of money to spend on whatever you fancy. In fact, according to http://www.weather.com, there were twenty-four days in July when the temperature in Las Vegas reached one hundred degrees Fahrenheit. The math is easy. You would have saved two hundred forty dollars. That could equate to membership at a gym, a spa day, a cabana at a hotel pool, tickets to a show, or maybe even a home improvement project.
My friend told me about her endeavor to save money this summer. Above, is the strategy she has been following. She predicts that by the end of the summer she will have saved about seven hundred dollars. That’s a serious amount of money that she can spend on whatever she wants or hold onto for a rainy day.
If you don’t often experience one hundred degree days where you are from, maybe you have more rainy days. Every day it rains you can save money. Maybe in the winter you can save money every day the temperature is below freezing. Some places are known for humidity and you can use the percentage of humidity to play the savings game. With a little bit of creativity, you can play the short-term savings game too.
