Counting Change towards Vacation

December 12th, 2012 at 08:08 am

The jar that has all the change I keep for my Disney Vacation in 2014 was almost full. So last night I started rolling the coins. My husband wanted to know why I didn't just take it to the coin machine at the credit union. I actually like to roll my own coins. So that's what I did for about an hour last night. I came up with $35 in change! That does not count the coins that did not make up full rolls. I need $2 more in quarters to have another roll. I plan to make a deposit into my ING account next week. So hopefully I will have $45 just from my change to put in that account. My plan is to deposit my change once a month into my Disney Fund. We probably won't go until December 2014. So that gives me two full years to save. If I do this on a monthly basis, I should have enough money by then to have a really nice vacation. Whenever I break any dollar and get change back, I automatically put it aside for my change jar. It's amazing how fast it adds up. And I don't even miss the change!

    I've been doing this with $5 bills, saving up to go to the Bahamas next year.

    I save all my change and all my ones. Right now they are going into the Emergency Fund, but I've saved for vacations and big appliances in the past the same way. I like rolling the coins myself, too.

    That is a great idea about isolating your change so it can lead to a boost in the vacation (or other) funds! It is nice to have some insurance that you can put a bit away all the time, and it definitely adds up. Good luck!
