Is anyone else saving up for something?

My husband and I have been putting change and money in a vase at home. It has almost been a year and we are just about there to buy a KING size bed. Finally! We sleep on the worst old broken down water bed you could imagine!

  • I have a "stalking stash" I'm putting money & using as I need it --- as long as my boys (NKOTB) are on tour, I'll be saving & dipping into that.

    We just got our tax refund. We are paying our property taxes & house ins... the rest is the start of our "House down payment" fund. We just made the last payment on this home & are buying the neighbor's house. We should be able to go forward with that by summer.

  • My kids are 2 and 4. When they get money for their birthday's or Christmas I put it into a savings account for their college. Right know they don't understand about what money is and they don't really need anything so I think it is best to put it some place that will help them in the future.

  • I am saving up to have a privacy fence put up in my back yard. I watch lots of my grandkids during the summer and a family just moved in where the lady does day care. Up until now i have been able to keep my grands in their own yard. NOthing against day care but we live on a busy busy street and dont want kids climbing the fences.
