    I'm in again. It's always just pennies and I'm not sure what they'll go towards, but it's better than losing them.

    I'll try it again this year! I need to count up what is in there right now, and that will be my starting balance.

    Count me in. My son moved to Boston so the funds in the change jar will go toward a vacation to visit him and see a bit of Maine at the same time.

    I'm in! While I would like the change to go toward something fun, I think I'll be putting the totals (plan to deposit the totals June 29 and December 31) toward snowballing our payments to get rid of debt. I'll count what's in my piggy bank tonight and post my total tomorrow as a starting amount.
    Every little bit helps.


    July Goals
    15 No Spend Days - 4/15

    20 Exercise Days - 3/20
    Read 3 books - 1/3
    Only $275 for groceries - $0/$275
    Make a price book
    Make $200 - $88/$200
