In honor of Special Education Week - and the people who provide a much appreciated service inthat field - today's posting is about giving of your time in order to save money.
Many times the only reason we end up spending money is because we are bored with doing nothing and want to go out and 'do something'. Most of the time that 'something' involves spending money in one way or another. How about getting involved with a charity, or cause, of your choice instead. The time you spend volunteering somewhere there is a need, or taking part in an event to help raise money for charity, is time you won't be 'out' spending money.
Not only will you be saving your money, the rewards you receive will come back to you many times over. Many people believe that in order to receive, you have to give first. The biggest reward, of course, is the knowledge that you helped make another person's day birhgter, or life a little easier. Also, how many times have you heard the stories of people who volunteered their time somewhere and ended up meeting someone there who ended up becoming their spouse - or their boss - or a benefactor in some manner. You never know who you'll meet and how your life will be enriched when you take some time to give to those in need.
