Lunch money...and we don't take any out for a while, so we also use it for a vacation fund

We save all of our change and give it to Wesley for his piggy bank. He LOVES getting money.

When the piggy's full, he takes it to the bank and puts it into his savings account, which is for his college.

I use mine for my special get-a-ways. When I want a day or two to myself DH gets a suite at my favorite hotel for me and my dog.

Since Im trying to build an emergency fund I think it will go towards that for now...eventually I would like to use it for fun money or vacations.

I plan to use mine to help fund a trip to another state for my kids to see their dad between summer visitations.

Unfortunately, I've had to raid it a couple of times for gas money during the really high prices we had. :bang:

My daughter takes all my change and splits it between 2 change jars... one is for rides at the mall and one is for disney world. She had one for each at my house and one for each at my parents house.

We've decided not to use it, and keep it at home for a sort of mini EF. We call it our "bail money."

It is DDs Port Discovery membership or Aquarium, she gets a chance to pick, only one membership a year. My change jar does not include quarters. Quarters go to a different jar and they get deposited in the bank.
