With pocket change I begin!

November 14th, 2009 at 06:55 am

I don't know what possessed me to do it, but as soon as my feet hit the floor this morning I started scrounging for money. I scrounged in my husband's sock drawer, pants pockets, coat pockets and car. I found...


THIRTY SEVEN DOLLARS AND THIRTY SEVEN CENTS!!!

I can't believe I found that much pocket change. Only $8 of that was dollar bills. I ran out to the store and spent $2.75 on coin rolls and rolled it all.

So I begin my $20 challenge with pocket change and am very pleased.

    Good for you! I just turned in my change at the bank and received $36 to put into my challenge. My bank does not want it rolled, so I just take it in a plastic bag and they count it for free.

    I ask at the bank for coin wrappers and they give them to me free! That's a lot of loose change hanging around the house. I'm impressed.

    What is the $20 challenge?

    Banker Gurl, I'm not entirely sure myself so I'm not the best to answer. I think it's a matter of finding/earning an extra $20 you wouldn't normally have earned. What I am unsure of is whether the numbers folks are claiming as totals are actual dollar amounts or more like, I think I saved $5.00 by purchasing that at a garage sale, so I'll add $5.00 to my total. For me, it will be an actual dollar amount.
