Last summer, Val put out the Second Annual Piggy Bank Savings and I of course joined in thinking that it was a great idea. It is a great idea for people who actually use cash, but for me it did not go great! It is down right pathetic actually! Here is my jar--I saved $31.86 in change. The ten dollar bill is from when my hubby raided all the quarters out of my bank before we went to Las Vegas in December. Then, we had to go to the one and only casino that still uses coins--UGGHHH! You can see how everyone else did with the challenge here
I think I will just keep adding to my jar when I have any change.
The bright side is I charge everything I can to get a cash back bonus. I get quite a lot back each month and I spend my cash back bonus on my quilting supplies at Amazon like rotary blades, needles, pins, and Wonder clips. By the way, when you go to order Olfa rotary blades on Amazon, look for the 10 pack it is listed with tools not crafting supplies. Today it is listed for $22 http://www.amazon.com/OLFA-45mm-Rotary-Blades-10-pack/dp/B001705RTQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1436282878&sr=8-1&keywords=10+pack+olfa+rotary+cutting+blades. That is a smoking deal!
I continue to get my girlie embroidered alphabet books. I love dogs, so I chose to make the puppy instead of the purse.
The sweet little quilt looks adorable!
And the rainbow showcases most of the colors I have been using.
Priscilla from San Diego and Nancy from Montrose--you both left comments on my blog and I would love to respond to you, but you are no reply comments. Leave me another comment and include your emails, so I can respond!
I am getting all my stuff together for our retreat and will post some details about that soon!
