Pennies, Nickels, Dimes and Quarters

I’m a saver. Hence, while I have a decent stash (I’m also addicted) I am quite tight with my money. Unless I have set is aside for something.

Currently I will stash a $20.00 whenever I can for quilt shows and road trips. However I am seriously considering getting a Silhouette Cameo cutter for fabric applique. I’m not however willing to part with fabric money for one.

Hence the coins. Val over at Val’s Quilting Studio is hosting a Piggy Bank Challenge.

And I’m in.

This is my current piggy bank, not very large…3-DSCN7473

and already very full. 4-DSCN7474 Here is another place I store coins….5-DSCN7476 But it’s also where I take them from.6-DSCN7477 Here is my husband’s coin stash container….7-DSCN7480Do you think he’ll notice if I empty this….
8-DSCN7481 Into this….2-DSCN7470I guess I better get busy. I choose a large mouth jar, not so I would dip into it, but so it would hold 1 and 5 dollar bills. 1-DSCN7469In the meantime, I have an entire year to decide if I really want the silhouette cameo.

Come join in on the fun and start saving for something special now.

Saving on the Journey, Jackie

    OH Jackie I had so much fun reading your post! I smiled to think you have as many little stashes around as I do! SO glad you joined the challenge! V

    I’ve never seen the Cameo before–that’s pretty stinkin’ cool. I’m cheering you on! Make change, make change, make change!

    • Jackie

      Sandy, you make me smile. I plan to make change in larger denominations. Knowing me, I may decide not to get the Cameo once I have the money. But then I may continue to think of ways to use it. Whatever happened to having just fabric, thread and a sewing machine?

    My hubby has a can full of change already too. But while I get away with taking coins out of it now and then, I think he would notice if I emptied it!

      Hi, Janet, Thanks for stopping by. My husband would most certainly notice. I didn’t take any, but if I am close to my goal next year, I will be begging for his jar.
