Small Change Thursday – Keep the Change

I don’t know about you, but I find that most of my big changes, read starting a diet, happen on Monday. It seems I need those few extra days to psyche myself up for that all-important change from snacking on chips and chocolate to snacking on carrots and celery.

Since many people see Monday as a day to start on those big change items, I decided that Thursday would be a good day to tackle some small changes. Thus, Small Change Thursday has taken form.

The changes will vary widely, and will range from money-saving changes to diet changes to romantic changes to who knows what. In fact, if you have ideas for small changes that can make a big difference, let me know.

Today’s small change is to keep the change. That’s right, but it’s not as confusing as it first appears.

By keep the change, I mean your literal change: pennies, nickles, dimes, and quarters. Keep your change to spend on something that requires a few dollars or lots of dollars depending on your goal.

As for me, I keep the change and spend it on those all-important, but infrequent, cafe mochas, half the chocolate, hold the whip. If I have lots of change, I make it a grande.

What little (or big) indulgence would it be worth keeping the change for?

Yours for the celebration of life,

  1. I’ve been using an empty water cooler bottle for years and one day I know I’ll need to “cash in”. Great way to set aside a few dollars for something exciting, or a rainy day.
