Since we are Dave Ramsey fans and follow a “cash only” plan, we end up with a lot of change. We typically put all of our change in a “change jar” which helped us to pay for a family vacation this summer and which is almost full again and will go toward buying Christmas gifts. As I was leaving Walgreens this weekend, I noticed that the Salvation Army “bell ringers” (I’m sure there’s an “official” title, but I don’t know it) were out. I let my kids put our extra change into their container. They were excited to do it and it’s a small and easy way to help someone else in need.
