Taking Val's Piggy Bank Challenge again!

Just wanted to drop by and let you know that I am taking Val's Piggy Bank Challenge again. My "piggy" is actually a bear!

This past month, I emptied my Bear and took my savings to the Coinstar machine at my local supermarket. If you exchange your coins for a gift card, there is no charge to sort them. So it was a no-brainer to get an Amazon gift card.

I then used my Amazon gift card to buy myself some gold sandals because a girl can never have too many shoes or too much fabric!

Thanks for visiting!

Pugs and kisses,


  1. How fun. The only thing that would have been better than gold or purple leopard print lame' sandals.

  2. We have a change bucket close to the laundry basket. When my younger daughter got married, we gave my son-in- law the contents for an extra wedding treat. We did the same for their fifth anniversary, and again this month for their tenth. He said it was well over five hundred dollars! We will continue with this in five more years, but I retired a year ago, and my husband retired two weeks ago, so we don't seem to accumulating as quickly.

  3. Cute shoes! Love the bear too. I bet he holds a bunch of change!

  4. HI Nanc...well did all your change go into that new kitchen remodel or did ya have enough to get those cozy shoes?? Count and let us know this week. :)
