10 cents is easy to save or find around your place... some people might not even pick up a dime on the ground. Basically, 600,000 times 10 cents is $60,000. I know it sounds like a lot but when you think about it, we were at the grocery store today and bought a cheaper brand of ketchup. If we saved 20 cents, that's 2 on the way to 600,000... but there were a few things we didn't buy but had planned to buy - at $1.50, that's 15 more towards your 600,000. Of course, if you're counting things you thought of buying but didn't seriously plan to buy, it won't really count... I figure in our groceries today, because we were really careful, we probably saved at least 200 dimes by little things here and there... I've got only 580,800 to go! I'm serious about this - even though it sounds like a joke, it's not that tough to do - and it's extra money in your pocket. Cool.
