So while I am in hospital today resting, mum was enjoying the beautiful sunshine. She even went into the water up to her knees on a beach walk today - go mum!! Then she did some redecorating - wow a girl only goes away for a few days and everything changes!!
So mum thought as it was a new year and all, that it was time to talk about the $5 money jar. Each year mum starts a jar, and every time she gets a $5 note, she puts it aside and at the end of the year she has a pile of cash to use on treats only. In previous years she has used it to buy a painting and last year she bought a Dyson vacuum cleaner (best one ever she reckons).
Now she has already started this money jar in August. It helps that mum tries to take cash out of her account on payday and tries to budget some for groceries, market money, bills and then tries not to touch her accounts. So that is why the jar has lots of monies in it already.
We hope you can join us and make your own money jar for 2013.
