Freeze (Literally) Some Backup Funds For Emergencies

Until today, the phrase cold hard cash probably only had a metaphorical meaning to you; well, that’s about to change. If you have problems keeping a lump sum around as a backup cache because you keep spending a little here and a little there, putting your emergency funds into the deep freeze is probably right up your alley.

Simple place your funds into and seal a freezer Ziploc bag, be absolutely sure it is sealed and airtight. Place the sealed Ziploc bag into a tupperware container and fill the container with water; now store the container in your freezer. Next time you need emergency funds, you only have to thaw your reserve; in most cases the waiting time will curb any urge to impulse spend.
