Little things in life do add up!

I have this one gallon apple juice jar that I save spare changed in, except for quarters since our washing machines and driers only take those.Â

In the course of a 3 month period, I sock away all my pennies, nickels and dimes. When the jar is about ½ full, I sit down, wrap them all and without a doubt I’m shocked at how much money is there.  The last time I had about forty dollars.

I add this bit of money to my stash for buying my favorite stocks, bonds and mutual funds when the market is low.  I enjoy watching these little purchases I make add up.  It’s amazing that just the little action of saving your change can result in a large nest egg over the long haul.

My mom once said that it’s the little things you do in life that add up, and I have to agree she’s right.

Have a marvelous weekend!
