"Drop A Dime" (change For A Change)


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

1 lb = 1 dollar in (4 quarters)
3/4 lb = 75 cents
1/2 lb = .50 cents
1/4 lb = 25 cents

My grand kids decided to contribute a dime each time I resist a craving for 10 minutes.

(Traditional Reward for their behavior change efforts.)

Kids limit = $1.00/day Me = no limit

1 large metal bank -
one hundred dollar bill on the outside - represents 100 pounds

At the local Dollar Store - much cheaper than large chain stores - Cha-Ching!)
