6th Annual Piggy Bank Challenge BEGINS!

Many of you are not only familiar with the water jug vs the pig competition that goes on in our household, but have now been a part of it for the past five years!!

It started our innocent enough when five years ago I bought this little silver piggy bank to collect laundry change. Well, a year later, he was full and I cashed in at $102.45! I, of course, put my new found "savings" to good use and stocked up on fabric! So fun!!

Well, once my husband found out how much I saved, he started his own "bank of change". But also read somewhere that if you throw in a dollar or even a five dollar bill once in awhile, you can literally double your savings.

So here we are six years later sharing continuing the challenge with you.

 Create a post to join/rejoin us for this year's 

the Piggy Bank Challenge!

Note: This Linky is open until  August 1st.

You know what they say:  a penny saved is a penny earned.
It's been fun to extend the challenge to all of you  and we are looking forward to seeing who links up.
  1. All's you have to do is create a post this week sharing your "piggy bank".
  2. Include your goal of what you'd like to purchase with your savings come this time next year.
  3. Include the linky button above to help spread the word to all your followers. 
  4. Return and link your post here anytime this week until August 1st.
  5. Start "penny pinching". (Coins and bills are allowed)
  6. Next year we'll  all empty our piggy banks on July 6th and create a post exclaiming our totals, share what quilty purchase we're going to make and link up here once again to celebrate! (Don't worry, I'll send emails to all who link up this week with reminders.)


  1. Hi Val,
    I was visiting DaffyCat and found the link to your place. This Piggy Bank Challenge is such a cool idea! I'm looking forward to collecting all those coins to spend next year. Have posted about this at my place. Have a great day!

  2. I've linked up and already started saving! I cut a slot open on a plastic coffee container so I could fit in bills and coin.
    Would love to go on a quilting cruise but will more likely splurge on a longarmer quilting one of my projects.


I have to admit, your comments make me smile! Thanks for sharing and for letting me know you stopped by. I Hope your day is awesome!
