    I'm in! Starting at zero. I had cashed in this years to add to savings. I like your idea of a goal Emily. Will have to think of something specific to work towards. Thanks for the idea!

    In....I have a huge "jar" that is full of change right now....We are going to wrap it and use that as starting balance of our jar....I wrap about twice a year at most...We usually use that money as our "summer vacation" money, we usually try to make it to Yankee Stadium in NYC for a ball game!

    I do not carry cash often, so our change is very small, but we save it all when we get it. Last year on new years we started fresh. I counted today we had $27.90. Hm, think we need to add singles into this to make it even matter. I deposit all the daycare families checks, and the state paid kids, and 2 families pay by direct deposit so I don't see cash often at all. Only if I take out $20 here or there for something the kids need cash for.

    I don't use cash much, so i don't have much change. Especially now that the penny is gone, it seems I never have change.

    I am going to through the house and collect all the stashes of change, and deposit it. We have jars of pennies everywhere.

    then i'll see what we can do for change challenge.

    Last year I saved a lot of my larger change-being in Canada we have the loonies and toonies. I didn't have a goal but this year I do so I will start with a clean slate and take all my rolled coin from last year to the bank. With my goal it will make me more diligent . All the quarters, dimes and nickels will go to our Grand-daughter. Will be opening up an account for her. Good luck all.
