Project Jar

I have always kept a change jar (taking a lesson from my parents) and as newlyweds, my husband and I funded larger projects like wallpapering and painting with our rolled change. Later, after we had a child, I saved our change during the winter months to roll and use at yard sales in the Spring and Summer. Yard sales are already great bargains, but using money that wasn't already circulating within our pockets made those purchases hurt even less. The month of April I'll keep a new change jar with you girls and see what kind of damange I can do during the May sales. Thanks for a great thread!
