Christmas: Start a $2 Jar

I know it’s rather ridiculous to be talking about Christmas.  However, it can be a good time to start a little saving fund for a mini holiday, fun day or splurging at Christmas-time.  There are many ways to do this, for example: by opening a Christmas bank account fund and putting a little away each week.  

Another idea is to have a $2 jar.  I’ve done this myself many times.  The idea is to save every $2 that comes your way in a dedicated jar.    I decorated a cute jar with tape and it sits in the pantry.  In the past, I’ve saved coins in an empty 600ml coke bottle and can before too.

If you want to save over $1,000 of $2 coins you need approximately a 750 ml bottle or jar.

You can make the jar pretty if you like by using washi tape and then fill away. 

Create a $2 jar to save all your $2 coins. A 750ml jar will hold over $1,000 - on beafunmum.com

    Great idea Kelly, I always seem to have gold coins floating about. Buying some Easter gifts the other day made me think about Christmas time again and the fact that it’ll come around super quick considering it’s already April. I think I’m going to start this in our house! Thanks for the tip.

    What a terrific idea! I recently emptied the boys’ piggy banks to deposit and all those little coins add up very quickly, so would be great way to collect for the expense of Christmas.

    Well, I showed my husband and – while he can’t believe that jar holds $1,000 – we are doing it 🙂
