Time for the Jar of Disappointments!

I wasn't really expecting much out of my little rainy-day "jar"...
(AKA Reused powdered-drink container)
 But I was a bit disappointed to only find about $55 worth.

I suppose I will take it to Acme and turn it in for store credits and buy some food. That's really all I have to report today. I'm getting reckless in my old age and staying up past bed time on a Friday night.

Though speaking of staying up late... here's that photo I sort of (but not really) promised. I even have an "I'm not a minor and I can drink alcohol" bracelet! Woo! Go me.

My next post will be about my 2014 goals and aspirations. That one, I can fully promise. My goals ended up being a lot simpler than I thought, and a lot easier to come up with. 2014 will hopefully be a drama-free year.

    1. Yup, better than nothing. But I still thought I had contributed a bit more.

  2. I ended up not doing it and putting all my odds and end in my daughter's bank account.

    1. I'd love to do that with my own bank, but traveling to find an ATM for small amounts would drive me nuts.

  3. Only spare change and laundry dollars went in mine -- I haven't checked it lately though.

    1. I had almost forgotten to check it this year. Almost considered just carrying it over to next year, but didnt.

  5. I haven't dumped mine yet. I use a bread bowl, and it's pretty full, but most of it is pennies. I use so little cash, though, that my coin savings adds up to less and less each year. Dang those debit cards, making life simple for me to keep up with my spending!

    You're quite beautiful, Tanner! And I love the train around the Christmas tree.

    Peace <3

    1. I was in that same situation... I rarely use cash, and dislike doing so. I still try to always have some cash on my wallet and some in my car (for emergencies), but other than that, not a fan. And thanks! The Christmas tree/train are at my brother's house.

  7. Beautiful, Tanner! LOVE the dress! It's good to have a face to put with your writings! And I'm sure most who don't do many cash transactions have a small "pot" to cash in, too. Hubby use to have this humungous jug that once cashed in at over $500 in change. Those days are gone.........he's downsized to a little wicker duck basket that he puts his wallet/spare change in, and as of now there's probably not $20 in it! Happy New Year! May we each keep focused on our financial goals while remembering at the same time to breath & live! ;-)
