THE NEW SEALED POT CHALLENGE
WHAT’S IT ABOUT????
Well,little bits and bobs of money are squirreled away in an assortment of SEALED POTS and the result is….A NICE CHUNK OF MONEY JUST IN TIME FOR CHRISTMAS, OR TO PUT TOWARDS HOLIDAYS… OR A TREAT, OR LOTS OF FUN when we open them in DEC 2012!
Following the CHALLENGE couldn’t be easier as you simply get a pot (mine is an old gravt tub but others have posher types), make a hole for cash (if not provided), make sure it’s sealed so you can’t open it, chuck your spare cash in it and then ON THE 3RD DEC WE WILL OPEN THEM TOGETHER! It’s not a competition, we just will support each other here to keep going with ANOTHER CRAZY SCHEME TO SAVE MONEY!
So far we are ROCKIN’ the challenge! We did so well we had to graduate to a second sealed pot. I picked up mine at Dollarama for $1.25 each plus HST (of course).
Our first pot weighs in at about 4.5 pounds and it was full on March 25th! The second one is at about 3 lbs at the moment. We put everything in there, including loonies and toonies. Sometimes an odd $5 bill gets crammed in as well.
We know for sure that we are going to at least buy a new camera for Amy. A few years ago, while we were in North Bay, someone stole our diaper bag, which had Amy’s Canon in it. I purchased another camera for her, a Nikon, but we just do not like the camera or the quality of photos we get from it. I am hoping that we have enough in the pots to buy something like this for her:
Right now this particular kit is retailing at about $1000.00, so I might be getting a bit ambitious. I guess we will have to wait until December 3rd to find out!! I am hoping to at least buy the camera…the bigger lens might have to wait 🙂
Is anyone else participating in the challenge? How are you doing?
