    I am trying to decide what to use change jar for this year.....it will either go toward bedroom remodel/redecorate, debt reduction or trip to swim with dolphins. Regardless, I added 3.04 to the fund today

    I'm in.....I have a jar that counts the money....I used it for 2014.....I ended up with over $90.....this was change I picked up off the street...a penny here, a penny there and me emptying my purse once in a while.....I gave the money to a friend at Christmas time to help with her Mom's funeral. So, I am starting at zero.....will check my purse later on and see if I have any change....will see if I can beat 2014 total.....

    Counted the current change jar to baseline a starting point. Currently have 284.00 in wrapped coin and another 4.85 in the silver jar. I do not count pennies until the jar is completely full. I didnt realize there was that much in there from end of 2014 but I am glad to have a good start

    My closing balance in my change jar (just toonies and loonies) for 2014 was $744. Although I have not done anything with it I will start with a zero balance to start this year. Have put $10 into the change jar today. Will still be putting all other coins into our Grand-daughters can. I will just keep adding to her total as that change jar has been going for about 2 years now.

    I would like to join this challenge, but I haven't decided where to put the money yet; vacation, debt, emergency fund. I've been saving my change, but haven't counted it yet either. I plan to by the end of March and then monthly from there after.
