Last year I joined in on the Piggy Bank Challenge over at Val's Quilting Studio.
I'm a few days late reporting how I did but here it is.
My collection jar sat on the shelf in my studio right next to my bobbin winder and a few other goodies.
This is how it looks today, not even 1/4 full. To be honest I didn't remember it much throughout the year, just when the change in my wallet got too heavy would I think to dump it all in the jar.
Here is what I managed to save. After counting it up, it comes to a whopping $30.85. Not great but not totally shabby either.
So what am I going to spend it on? Nothing. All of the change went right back into the jar and the jar went back onto the shelf.
I'm going to keep adding to it until it is filled and then I'll spend it. I'm going to try and remember to add to it more regularly but I'm not going to formally join the challenge this year. Hopefully I'll be able to fill it in less than 3 or 4 years. :)
