Feels like winning a cash prize everytime

I shared many frugal household tips in  50 ways to stretch a dollar last fall.  Tip #14 was emptying out your change daily and putting in a jar.  Not just emptying out your purse or wallet.  I often find change in the couch cushions or the bottom of the washer. 

We went awhile without turning in the change.  The coins in jar were piling up and spilling over onto the fireplace mantle.  My husband brought in all the change while I was away in Michigan.  And he walked out of the bank with $125.00.

I know it is not the same winning a cash prize.  But it sure feels that way!  An extra $125.00 to put towards something.  If it’s a tight month that can make a difference.

I love our little change jar!
