    Smile Change Jar challenge.

    I have just counted all the small change in my jar....I have $28.62! I'm planning on keeping a better control on my spare change...I'm hiding so my boys don't dip their hands in it, like they usually do...

    How is your change jar challenge coming along?

    I have to confess, I have been taking change out on Sunday's to get a paper for the coupons. I need to find a better solution cause we cash our change in for vacation.

    I just cashed mine in and used it towards Ashlee's birthday party. I had $50.00 to put towards the party! It really helped my pocketbook.

    Now I'm saving towards our annual weekend at the shore in June with the kids. I would LOVE one of those old time photos where you dress up. It's gonna be expensive, so I'm saving all of my change and ones for that

    Usually when mine gets up to around $20 or a bit more, I take it and deposit it right into our savings account. Of late, I've been dipping into it to pick a odd thing at the store rather than using my interac. I know if I have something small I need, that to have the exact change is better than my debit card, kwim.

    I want to stop dipping into it though and continue to put it in our savings for something special.

    I just added mine up today... $15.00...I seperated the copper, silver and bills (1.00) into their own containers. My coin bowl is now waiting to be filled again and sinse it is empty, I won't be tempted to "dip" into it for the kid's lunch money or drinks.

    I counted ours a couple of weeks ago and it had $89 in silver and I did not count the pennies but I am sure that I have about $10 worth of them so I have close to $100 in it.

    We don't count ours until right before we take it to the bank before we go on vacation, so I don't know how much is in there, but I know we're working on it! All change goes directly in there!

    I cashed in my change and added it to my vacation fund for our camping trip in August. Along with a rebate check for $3.86, I deposited over $31.00 to my account.

    Starting over......
