Don’t just save your change…hoard it & put it to work for you! Maybe you want to cash your change in to do the 52 Week Money Challenge. Or maybe you you need a little mad money. For my family, this money is going into our savings/emergency account.
This is our change for the month of January. Each day, The Hubs puts his extra jingle in the jar. I add to it about once a week, adding the spare change from our cash spending on groceries, gas, etc. (I’ll be posting about going debit/credit card free & the impact on our family next week.) This month we collected a little over $23 in coins. That may not sound like much to you, but that’s BONUS money in our savings account that I didn’t actually budget for (Yes, I have a line item in my budget for savings. You should too…even if it’s only $5!). And those little bonuses add up over time. I’m pretty happy with the result.
So quit throwing your pennies away & throw them in a jar. Cash them in & be rewarded for hoarding your change!
