    I'm in again. I have 245.00 wrapped change so far. 67.00 from 2008 and 178.00 from 2009. I keep in in a little jar all of it mixed together till it is almost full them I wrap it up and add to my stash. I keep the pennies unwrapped in a Big pot/jar with a lid it is almost 3/4 full and can hardly be lifted. Who knows how much is in there. What is left in the little jar that is not enough to fill a wrapper I just leave in the jar and keep adding. So right now there is some in there from 2009 but I will add to the 2010 total because it won't be wrapped till then.

    I have no idea what I will use it for. Something fun.

    I had to go and change my totals for 2009. The smaller jar I have I got at Walmart and it says vacation fund with these little charms all around it. That is the one that I dump my change into day to day. This year though I went with my dd, ds and ds's gf to this ceramics place and painted a jar that says money on it. I had forgotten about it and I just looked and it had 35.00 of rolled change in it. Yay!!

    I went to the bank today and opened a savings account just for my change. That way I'll know what's going on and hopefully have a nice sum by 2011.

    I am in, I do pennies and then all the rest of the change goes in another jar, keeping total in my siggy. Also when I get so much I will be depositing it into our savings account for an emergency fund/rennovations fun.

    I've started saving change in two jars - one for pennies and one for silver (which includes any random gold dollar coins I end up with as change). I'm trying not to keep too close of a count until they fill up and I roll them. Right now, I'm doing this to trick myself into saving (because I've been a miserable failure at that lately) and rebuild my emergency fund, but after that is replenished, it's time to save for a new couch.

    I ended the month of January with $11.95 in silver & .35 in pennies....the no spend challenge doesn't give me much of an opportunity to get change !

    Found 4 dollars of pennies I had already rolled and put away, forgot about them so I am adding this to my penny total.
