Have you heard of Valerie's Challenge? A Piggy Bank (any container will do) to save your change or spare bills to build up a savings for something quilty. I missed out on the closing of last year's linky - never got my Piggy emptied.
I use one of my famous snack barrels (used for my scrap storage) and covered it with a cute house fabric. It hides what is inside and I keep it on the rack with my other barrels. This thing got filled half way - and then partially emptied. Not only coins go in this, but spare bills and any quilt sales. I hope to show you what I bought with that partial emptying money in a few weeks.
So the rest of the change and some bills and a weekend quilt sale are staying in here to start the new challenge.
