A Penny At A Time


I really dislike finding loose change in my purse or pockets. I can't stand the sound of jingling as I walk. So my solution? A change jar. LOL! I took a canning jar and designated it as my drop point at the end of the day. Even though the Husband has raided it a few times for the Boy's lunch money it's begun to add up. Tonight after our dinner date at Red Lobster we had the urge to count. It's only half full and we have almost $130. What do you know? Savings without even trying!! Or maybe extra spending money for India?

Wow, that's awesome ! I found a ton of change recently while cleaning off my Hubs dresser top ( about $25.00 but didn't tell him...I just put it in his change bank. I kept all the quarters and just put in the nickles, dimes and pennies )Takes a little longer to pay for things but stores always need change !

Fun. We have a jar with a lid that has a digital counter on it. The kids love putting change in and watching the tally go up...also keeps the raiders at bay since you can't take any out without throwing off the balance.
