In a previous Savings Saturday post I discussed saving your change. I was cleaning my car and getting it ready for vacation next week. It made me think of another great way to gather up change to add to a savings account. I haven’t counted it yet, but I would estimate I found around $5 in change in my car. I did spring cleaning a month or so ago so I know I don’t have any change around my home. However, I am betting many people do! Check jackets, pants pockets, under couches and chairs (and their cushions) and I bet you will find a dollar or two (or more!). Go through your home and car (s) every other month and take what you find and add it to your savings account.
I would also be willing to bet the kids (especially teens) would find at least a few bucks in change if they clean their room. It always seems to motivate mine when he is broke!
After checking pockets, cushions, cars, etc, I would love to hear how much you found!
