This post is completely unrelated to art but I had to share because I think it's a great idea!
While browsing that most amazing yet time absorbing websit Pinterest I came across a pin for the 52 Week Money Challenge.
You can find their FB page here https://www.facebook.com/#!/52WeekMoneyChallenge?fref=ts
to find out more about this idea.
I was completely inspired by the idea of everyone saving the same amount of money for 52 weeks and all the support we can all give each other to keep going.
It's really the push I need to try to save. I don't know if I will be able to make it all the way to the end but I'm going to try to participate as long as I can.
So today I made my money "jar". Something to match my decor so I can see it everyday, but not a clear jar so it's not obviously a big jar of money sitting out for everyone else to see.
I printed out a vintage font from the web, photo copied it, and then used CitraSolv to transfer the image onto this antique tin. 52 to remind me of the 52 Week Money Challenge, hidden yet in plane sight. My money saving checklist is printed out and put inside the tin with my money.
Maybe you would like to save too?
