And this saving tip is all about “little bits”. Specifically, RM5 notes. It’s simple! All you have to do is this: each time you get an RM5 note in change, put it away in a savings container.
And that’s it. By the end of however long you choose, you could end up with a tidy sum– like this student on Twitter who ended up with RM615 after just three months!

This tip – which is also fondly called the “duit hijau” method – is pretty genius because RM5 is small enough that you won’t miss it when you put it away, and the frequency of receiving an RM5 note ensures that you’re constantly saving without really thinking too hard about it.
Others who have tried it swear by the method as well!
