The Change Jar

A little challenge for myself while here in Louisiana. Along with trying to stow away money into our savings, I'm going to try to save some change as well. When I'm here, I tend to pull out cash and use it more, because card machines aren't in every store we frequent. Especially once the festivals and Farmer's Market start up. So I got a jar to see how much I can save in it while we are here. All change and dollar bills go into it. I probably will also dump some extra money in there if I have some left in my wallet come pay day. It's an experiment, so we'll see how it works. I do not plan to touch the money in the jar until 1) We leave. 2) It gets full. 3) Emergency.

I might count it monthly. We'll see. Without further ado, a picture of the start of this experiment. This is only about 3 weeksish worth of change.

  1. looks like you're off to an awesome start. Keep up the challenge you'll amaze yourself and Ryan how much you have at the end of the trip. It may even be enough to pay for the gas or more to Az.
