Some of you may remember that I did a short series of challenges Penny-a-Day, Dime-a-Day, and Dollar-a-Day. The challenge was how would you get the most out of $3.65, $36.50, and $365.00 after saving them over the course of one year. One of the things I was interested to see was how people thought about money would change as the amount changed. Here's a chart that kinda sums up the results:
|Gifts/Food for others||5||1||1|
Edit: LJ keeps eating chunks of this post...third times the charm maybe...
This is not the most scientific chart. Some people gave multiple answers, and I don't know if everyone would agree with how I counted...but I think you can still see some trends What I found most interesting was the lack of entreprenuer ideas at the $365 level. While the only true business idea (buying candy to resell for a profit), was at the $3.56 level. There were some creative ideas for generating more than you would otherwise expect for the amount from Penny and Dime challenges. At the $365 level, answers seem more conservative, savings and debt repayment. We also seemed to be more generous at smaller amounts.
I'm not saying that's good or bad, just interesting.
