Small starts really do grow

My husband and I throw change into a large bottle for a year. Canada has loonies and toonies so it can add up fast ( that's $1 and $2 coins for those that don't know) By vacation time, we have enough saved for our excursions etc. I bought a $900 bedroom set once with the change saved.
