Penny Jar count after 8 months!
|November 20, 2009||Posted by thefrugalvegan under General Content & Rants, Penny Jar Project|
After saving pennies for 8 months now (see original post on this), I have collected $6 in change which is an average of almost 3 pennies a day saved. I haven’t been great with it the last few months and actually forgot to add to the jar for awhile so I was a little disappointed. I will take these pennies and buy a gift card with it (coffee!) which will be given to a friend for their birthday so it’s not all lost. I am contuing this penny jar project and will be cashing in every 6 months to buy gift cards. Maybe it’s only $6 but it’s money My partner has been collecting change but doesn’t like rolling the pennies so he’s handing them over to me so perhaps I’ll make it to $10! Don’t forget to ask for donations from friends and family!
So imagine if you would have tossed all those pennies into fountains or left them at the store for people to take in case they needed one. Now here’s $6 in change that could have been tossed. It’s not much but it’s something and with that I can actually buy a decent amount of seasonal produce too.
So keep collecting those pennies and hopefully you’ll save more than me!
