Do you save your change in a jar?

Do you wait until the jar is full to spend it? What do you use it for?

  • I have this cute little piggy bank that is dressed up like a rockstar... I save the money in there and then put it in my retirement fund, hannah has one that is dressed like a ballerina and when it is full it goes to her college fund...
