The most important benefit of frequent giving is that it transforms the person into a giver wanting to help others all the time.
One´s heart is touched and one´s hand is opened far more easily when one is in the habit of giving.

The Chofetz Chaim explains... 
                                              
   
  
    
 
        
   
       
 
       
 
        
 
 
 
     
Chesed works under the same principles as business investments do.  A person who invests less quantities more frequently, generates more interests than the one who invests greater quantities infrequently.  Constantly investing in the market permits the person to be informed and prepared for the lows and highs of the market.  Similarly, the person who does chesed frequently is provided with countless opportunities to help others.

Chesed/ Here are 2 scenarios...

Here are 2 scenarios:
                                             
   
  
    
 
        
   
       
 
       
 
       
 
 
 
     
1. Mr. Cohen donates $5,000.00 a year to an organization which distributes the funds where they are needed most.  Once Mr. Cohen hands the money to the organization, he will not be giving this institution another thought until next year´s fund collection comes around.
 
2. Mr. Levy donates $50.00 each month to a fund that helps the poor, with clothing, food, medicine, etc.
 
Both men give what is required from their respective incomes.  The Chofetz Chaim analyzes both scenarios and reveals that the second man, the one who gives smaller amounts more frequently, will have greater benefit from his donation than Mr. Cohen who gives a greater amount but in one shot.
 
Mr. Cohen is giving the correct amount of money, however he has nothing left to give when a poor man arrives at his doorstep, hence he will not be able to fulfill the mitzva of caring for the poor.  

On the other hand, Mr. Levy is a constant investor in chesed.

If I have the means to do so, today I will set aside a certain amount of
money to be used exclusively to provide loans.

HOW TO BEAT THE YETZER HARA:
                                           
   
  
    
 
        
   
      
 
       
 
        
 
 
 
     
The best defense against the yetzer hara, the Chofetz Chaim advices, is a preventive strike. One with the means to do so, should set aside a certain amount of money for chesed. This loan fund should be established before anyone even asks you for money.  By setting the money aside, this person is stating to himself, his family, and anyone who could have any influence on his economic decisions:
"THIS IS THE MONEY I HAVE AVAILABLE TO LOAN.  THAT IS THE SOLE PURPOSE OF THIS MONEY."
With that declaration, the person destroys the yetzter hara´s intention.
