We save all our change and will probably cash it in for Christmas.

I started takin what was left in my wallet at the end of the pay period and putting it into a coffee can. That started out as vacation savings but I soon realized that I could put that money towards a credit card bill.
Enjoy Life! This is not a dress rehearsal!

I've always done the change saving (we use the change for our vacation spending money), but the $ bills is a good idea. I may try it.

What a great idea. I save change too, but I usually grab it through the month and it's gone.

Good Idea to put as much effort into saving $$$ as we do our weight loss/healthy living journey.
Success in not final, failure is not fatal: It is the courage to continue that counts.

Jesus's real name is Yahshua which means God is Salvation; many people call Him Yeshua or Y'shua which simply means Salvation. It's all good.
God's real name is YHVH in Hebrew or YHWH in Greek both man Yahweh.
I think it's awesome to know the real names of those I love.

I really need to start focusing on my money like how I do my weight. I am getting rediculous. I will try to do this too. My hubby is good at saving change and money, but then I'm a brat and he'll get me what I want. I told him to be strong and reject me, but I think my other personality comes out, takes over and cries like a baby until I can get what I want. Ha!
I am going to focus more. I am going to focus more. I will try my best to do the dollar bill thing. Thanks for sharing!

I've been saving change for many years. For the last two years I've been holding on to one dollar bills. When I go shopping I use all denominations except for ones unless I have to. At the end of the month when I balance my books I end up with 10 to 25 one dollar bills. As of January 1, I've managed to save $175.00 for a total of $675.00 for the three years. Nice little end of goal account.
