I have $10 per week taken out and in November will have approx $500 for Christmas presents!

But then aren't you getting something like 2% interest?

You might also want to consider (although this is sure to create some discussion) increasing the amount withheld from your paycheck.

Why not get the money that is coming to you and invest it before spending it? Even if it's a paltry 2%, at least your money would be working for you

Cheers -
