    Default 2011 Change Jar Challenge

    Ok, who's with me on this? This is another easy challenge. Just save your change and wether you deposit into a bank account, add to it all year and count it at the end of the year, or count it as you add to it, it's all fun. You can do this any way you can... count all change, just pennies. just nickels, get the picture. What will you be saving your change for. I deposit ours about every 4-6 weeks. I think this year I will save it for next Christmas.]

    I'll jump in. I have a ceramic jar that I've been filling up all year, and it is probably time to cash it in and start it up again.

    I'm in! We have a neat jar that actually counts the coins as we put them in so I always know what's in there. If the lid is removed it resets so everyone knows to stay out of the change jar!
    We usually use ours to do something fun on vacation!

    I'm in. I'm always in on this one.

    We use our change for spending money on vacation. I just emptied it the other day and used the money to pay for DD and I to have breakfast together at the diner on our day off. So, it's empty again, and ready to go for vacation!

    I also have one that counts the change as it goes in.
    I know it is off by a couple of pennies, but that isn't bad.
    It is a pretty good size pink piggy LOL I love it

    I use it for ... make it to payday bridge

    I will turn it in on Friday and then start over for 2011 and see
    how long I can let it sit.

    I'm in. I don;t know what I'm saving for, but I would like to see how much is in there at the end of the year. i have one that counts as you put the money in as well. Its a smaller one, but I can always empty it into the big MTN Dew bottle bank that we have and mark the bottle each time the other jar is emptied into it.
