    Default Change jar

    I counted my silver change and had $105.00 since the middle of January. I also have a sparkletts bottle about 1/4 full. I estimate $150.00 in that.

    I am gonna use it to visit Lori and my daughters this summer. I am very curious about the pennies however. They really sneak up on you!

    Only a frugal-er such as yourself (& us!) would appreciate the thrill of the change jar! I LOVE counting my change!

    I love my change jar, but I don't have much in it. A little over $7.00 I think. DH has his own change jar too. Sometimes we combine the two if we really need something, but otherwise it's a little extra spending money for each of us.

    That is great Robin! Those change jars really add up don't they? We have a gallon milk jug that is about 3/4 full, it goes into the emergency fund, when it is full.

    I'm still saving. I cashed in $87.00 a few weeks ago, put it into my savings account for vacation. Still have a box full of pennies that I haven't counted.
