I know it’s rather ridiculous to be talking about Christmas in — where are we now in the year — April. However, it can be a good time to start a little saving fund for a mini holiday, fun day or splurging at Christmas-time. There are many ways to do this, for example: by opening a Christmas bank account fund and putting a little away each week.
Another tangible idea is to have a $2 jar. I’ve done this myself many times. The idea is to save every $2 that comes your way in a dedicated jar. I decorated a cute jar with tape and it sits in the pantry. In the past, I’ve saved coins in an empty 600ml coke bottle and can before too.
If you want to save over $1,000 of $2 coins you need approximately a 750 ml bottle or jar.
The $2 Jar
I’m starting a new jar now and I’ll see how much there is by Christmas time.
