Stretching a buck is a major endeavour! But let's face it we all have some change weighing down our purses, wallets and pockets....and even a loose dollar (loonie) or even a twonie!
I'm always looking for a way to stash money, especially with the crazy renos at Vonlipi's Palace of Pyrex (nice name, eh?)
I was blog hopping last weekend when I read Living Rich on the Cheap , great blog from a fellow Canadian and I saw the Sealed Pot challenge from SFT (saving for travel).
Here's the link: Sealed Pot Challenge
Easy peasy: you sign up, you pick a jar, and activity and you start put moolah in the jar on Dec 4th.
VERY IMPORTANT! You do not unseal the jar....you open it only on Dec 3rd 2013 and get to enjoy the rewards of your hard work.
Here's how I crafted my jar
I took a big empty coffee can and I turned the lid so the printed side lies on the table. I used duct tape to mark a rectangle large enough so I can fit folded bills (one never knows) and I used an xacto knife to cut it.
I then replaced the lid on the jar and sealed it with duct tape.
I made a PARIS label for it because we have our hearts set on it.
Dan just passed by and dumped some change in it! It's not December 4th yet! Well it won't hurt he said.
True, every little bit helps.
So we will see
Now I would've liked to show you some pics, but for some reason the server is rejecting mine, I'm not worried it was that kind of day! NOV 14th 2012 I was able to download pics! YAY!
Now while Dan snores on the sofa I will multi task and watch Dexter AND chopped at the same time! LOL
Have a good night :)
So we will see
