7 Great Ideas for Spending Your Penny Jar ...


Do you need some ideas for spending the contents of your penny jar?

By the time you've filled it to the top, a penny jar can contain quite a surprising sum.

It's nice to dedicate it to something special - but what could that be?

Well, there are all kinds of ways in which you could treat yourself or someone else.

So here are some super ideas for spending your penny jar โ€ฆ

1. Donate

One of the nicest ideas for spending your penny jar is to donate it to a charity.

When my penny jar is full, I'm going to give it to a cat rescue.

They're a really tiny group and need all the help they can get.

The great thing about using your penny jar in this way is that you don't even notice the money coming out of your pocket.

You won't miss the small change, so if you don't already have a penny jar why not start one?

2. Dinner

You might think that the contents of your penny jar won't amount to much.

Depending on the size of your jar, though, the total may surprise you.

In fact, you may actually have enough to enjoy a meal out.

Of course, you'll want to take the coins to the bank first - it would be embarrassing to pay for your meal with a mountain of loose change!

3. Weekend Away

Do you have one of those massive bottles that are nearly as tall as you are?

It might take years to fill those up to the top, but just think how much money it will contain!

A large penny jar might just have sufficient funds in it to pay for a weekend away.

What a lovely treat that would be!

If your jar is smaller, and you're planning a weekend trip, you could use the money to pay for one aspect of the trip, such as a lovely meal or a memento.
