Piggy Bank Challenge.

I saw this on Daffycat and went over to Val's Quilting Studio and decided to try the Piggy Bank Challenge!  Just a way to save pennies and have fun at the end of the year.

I'm going to do mine a little differently, though.  I am handicapped and don't get out much.  DH does all my errands and grocery shopping for me (bless his heart).  So I have my checking account et al on paper... well really on the computer.  Excel is WONDERFUL!  When he brings the receipt, I round it up to the next dollar amount and put the change in my 'digital' piggy bank.  I am an avid cross stitch collector.  Just wish my stitching would keep up with it!  LOLOL.  So that's what I am doing.  I'm excited.

Have a great day y'all!
