making change

Let me introduce you to my change jar.
My mom gave me this for Christmas after I told her about all my new money saving plans and it is awesome.  The $82 it contains today is simply the random change I have come up with since the start of the year.  As I transition into a cash anchored budget, I plan to deposit any and all change into CJ (change jar) each month.  The amount I will save via change is liable to skyrocket...exciting, right?  
More about my cash budget in future months and yes, I named my change jar.

This month was a little bland in the savings department, but I honestly just didn't spend that much money.  Considering I need a little extra money in both March and April, this is a good thing.  Between a few trips to Target and Safeway and the once again successful trip to Goodwill, I was able to make use of enough coupon and store savings to justify this post...

March will be a little more exciting.
