Penny Pinchin'

'Your total is $8.14'
You have the $8 no problem..but the where to be found.

That is the dilemma that got me into this whole money-saving mess. I used to carry very little change which would cause me to break bills all the time...resulting in lots of change weighing down my purse, cluttering up my desk....everywhere. I used to view change as a useless form of currency until one day...I counted all of the loose change lying around.

That's right....Forrtttyyy Seveeennn bucks just out of nowhere.

Now...I dont spend change. When the cashier says...'$8.14' I smile and hand her 9 crisp dollar bills and smile at the pile of change she pours into my hand. One day, nick and I will combine all of our spare change and use it for our honeymoon. That's certainly a goal worth working for.




  1. It's totally crazy how fast it adds up (and it's nice to have all the change somewhere when husband was at law school for the vending machine).

  2. love this post :) its so true xxx
