Smarter Seasonal Spending Challenge Day 5: Keep the Change

Posted by   + Show Post

Don't vacuum up those shiny coins this year! Scour the couches, raid the cars and collect those coins in a jar to supplement your holiday budget. Each time you get change back while shopping add it to your holiday jar. You'll be surprised by how much coins can add up! 

Do you have a change jar? How often do you add to it (and take from it!)?

Did you miss yesterday's challenge? You need to participate in at least 10 of the challenge posts for a chance to win the $50 gift card. Sign up here to join the challenge and get daily reminders!

We have a change jug. We add to it all the time.

We do have a change jar but I hardly ever contribute to it. My boyfriend does everyday because he doesn't like change in his pocket.

I have one, but only pennies get tossed into it as we take the bus here and the silvers all go to bus fare.
