In honor of National One Cent Day, we are sharing this calculation to show the power of one cent. The idea is to compound your money by doubling the value daily, starting with one penny.
Day one – Double $0.01 = $0.02
Day two – Double $0.02 = $0.04
Day three – Double $0.04 = $0.08
Day four – Double $0.08 = $0.16
Day five – Double $0.16 = $0.32
Day six – Double $0.32 = $0.64
Day seven – Double $0.64 = $1.28 day, or just round down to $1.25 to make it easy.
Day eight – Double $1.25 = $2.50 day eight < Here you can see that rounding down by a few pennies simplifies it.
Day nine – Double $2.50 = $5.00
Day ten – Double $5.00 = $10.00
Next it’s $20, and then $40, $80, $160, $320, $640, $1280 (round down to $1250), then $2500 and then to $5000.
That’s $5000 after 19 days.
$10,000 after 20 days of doubling your money.
Double again and so on day 21 you have $20,000, the next day that’s $40,000, then $80,000, and $160,000 on day 24, $320,000 in 25 days.
Keep doubling and now on day 26 you have $640,000.00 and day 27 $1,280,000, then to simplify round down to $1,250,000.00.
Double $1,250,000.00 = $2.5 million on day 28.
Double $2,500,000.00 = $5 million on day 29.
Double $5,000,000.00 = $10 million on day 30. Now ten million dollars, that would be a really Big Purse.
There are many different options of wrapping paper and gift bags available on the market. However, it is becoming more popular and sustainable to utilize reusable items to wrap the gift in. Essentially, it’s a gift within a gift and there is no wrapping paper to toss in the trash.
A very easy method is to simply use a colorful scarf and contrasting ribbon. Simply place the gift in the center of the scarf. Pull all four corners of the scarf together. Gather and pull tightly down toward the top of the gift. Secure by tying a ribbon around the scarf and tie a bow. You could even add colorful hair bows onto the ribbon to dress it up even more. Easy as one, two, three, no waste and a happy girl.
Rule number one: There are no rules and dressing your age today isn’t what it was in your Mother’s day. For a style or single item of clothing to become off limits simply because you cross an invisible line is unreasonable. Let’s face it though, mini skirts are a thing of the past and Tina Turner may look great in one, but most of us girls are way past the point of wearing one.
By fifty, you have learned the art of buying less and purchasing better quality. Choose good quality separates that flatter your figure. Sleek and pulled together is the look. Avoid cheap, gimmicky jewelry and accessories. You can still follow trends, but learn to do it more subtly using them in shoes, scarves and purses. Accessories are a great way to follow a trend in a minimal way. A belt lifts an outfit without you having to dramatically to change your look. Most of us choose longer sleeves for covering our arms, and if your waist isn’t what it once was, then look for shapes that skim instead of cling.
Have fun with large statement jewelry or find your own fabulous style. Dress up with accessories, it’s amazing what a fun little purse can do for a simple outfit. One request, PLEASE do not give in to elastic waste bands.
Have you ever been in a checkout line and the girl ahead of you is digging, digging and digging though her purse? She is trying to find that pen down in the bottom somewhere. Or maybe she is trying to find her wallet, then she finally finds it, then she takes the wallet out to find the credit card or money to pay for her purchase. You are waiting and waiting and thinking about how you always get in the wrong line. Or, maybe you are that person.
Women, consider this: A purse that is not so deep that you have to dig “out of sight”. You just reach in, see what you need and take it out and then put it back where it belongs. You can still be stylish, considerate and smart. You have options, you don’t have to dig out of sight.
