See a penny, pick it up. All day long, you’ll have good luck

Do you believe this saying? I do, only because I get sheer joy out of finding pennies (and other change) on the street, in my car, in the laundry, anywhere really! I especially like to find pennies though. I’m not quite sure why, but it’s something I’ve always done and enjoyed. =)

 We have a container in our kitchen where all our spare change goes and once it’s full we take it to the change machine at Wal-Mart to see how much we’ve “made”. It’s always something fun that me and the hubs like to do and we always guess how much is in there. We’re usually wrong but it’s fun none the less. We haven’t spent our change money on anything too fabulous (yet!), but I’ve got some ideas of what I’d like to save it for! Something as small as a date night or maybe our next family vacation are a few that come to mind… Usually we spend a few dollars on lottery tickets, just so we can dream big that night! And the rest usually goes to whatever needs to be purchased soon – groceries, a dinner out, whatever it may be! These days since we have little man (who’s 6.5 months old, I might add!) a dinner out is a rare occurrence but we still save up our change for fun things in the future!
