I’ve participated in Val’s Piggy Bank Challenge this year.
This is what my bank looks like now:
It wasn’t always empty…. In February I checked in with this photo.
I guess you could say I cheated.
About 2 months ago an item I wanted was on sale and I thought if there was enough in the bank, I’d go for it. There wasn’t. I didn’t. Instead, I added the money to my KCRQF stash. The results of those purchases are here.
The amount? I don’t remember. It was over $200.00 but not much over. I remember counting it and being excited. But I didn’t write it down. Anyone who knows me, knows if I don’t write it down, I won’t remember. And it’s not an age thing (for those of you that may go there). It’s a me thing. Always has been. You can ask my kids. Even they know.
I have a head start on next year’s challenge.
