For the past 6 months I have been planning on going to the Rose Parade in Pasadena which is about 5 hours from my house. I started saving up change to have some "extra" money for the trip. I made our hotel reservations in November and got a really great rate for 3 nights at the Good Nite Inn and the price will be $140 with tax included. Last night I rolled up all the change I have been saving and it came to $143! So I saved enough just in change to pay for our hotel stay! I had budgeted $400 for the trip, so now that the hotel is covered we can do something extra with that money! Yay! We are going to Knotts Berry Farm on the 2nd and the visiting relatives the rest of the week, again, so excited lol!


I took the leftover change that wasn't' t enough to roll and put it back in the jar, I am going to spend next New Year' s Eve in Times Square, I wonder how much change I can save up in a whole year???

That's a good idea to save change. I used to do that. I should start again. I'm also in SoCal myself not far from knotts.
