    when a family member or a friend has a baby, i get a baby's 1st bank and put in a penny, nickel, dime, quarter and gold dollar of the year the baby was born.

    I love this idea! I'm really big into Christmas and always go way overboard for my sons, DILs and grandchildren. But I can't seem to allocate an amount each month out of my paycheck to put aside for Christmas because I'm always afraid I might need it for something unexpected. This way, it's put aside but I'll have the peace of mind to know that it's there if I really needed it...which would be a rarity!

    This is a great strategy! I know it's September but I'm going to start now and see how much I have at the end of the year. Thanks!

    I do this too! I save the 5s and the 1s.

    Great idea! What will you do with it at the end of the year?
