Thing You Can do with $5

Have an extra $5 this week?

Here are a few things you can do...

• Buy a greeting card from an Etsy seller and send a note to a old friend

• Buy some herb seeds and start a herb garden

• Buy yourself a special chocolate treat and savor it slowly

• Buy someone a pair of shoes. Make a donation to GiveShoes.org

• Freshen up a photo display. Give some old frames new life by painting them all the same color.

• Start a savings account. Every time you have a $5 bill, set it aside instead of spending it. At the end of the week deposit all the $5 bills in the bank.

• Learn Spanish or sign language with bargain language software from 5DollarSoftware.com

• Buy $5 worth of lemons and put them into a pretty bowl you already have, for a pretty and fragrant centerpiece
