Penny’s Tips Volume 32

Hi everyone! I am here with a New Year’s tip for you. Another blog, SmartSchoolhouse, wrote about The Penny Challenge. She even has a cool free printable available. Click here.

You save pennies every day for a year. On day one, you save one, day two, you save two- you get the idea. By the end of the year, you will have $667.95! Unfortunately, I don’t know where to get that many pennies from. I think my folks will notice their missing change if I take that much.

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.




  1. While the idea is smashing, where does one put that many pennies and they would be ever so heavy… Currently, all my pennies and other copper coins go into a smaller jar that, once filled, gets donated to our local English Book Exchange here in France.

  2. Gee – never thought about it but you would have a pile of pennies after a year of saving them that way. Brilliant.

    Hugs, Teddy

  3. I’ve thought about doing this a few times, until you realised that in december you have all the Β£3… whatevers each day, meaning you’re having to save Β£20 a week in the most expensive month! Haha.

  4. That would be a lot of pennies!! We have a spare change cup and when it’s full, the grandkids get a treat with the money. But, it’s no where close to $660+!

  5. What a great tip! But we don’t have any pennies…after keeping loose change for a thousand years, our mom cashed them in at one of those coin machines. She didn’t share, either. πŸ™

  6. That’s a lot of pennies at the end of the year. Nice way to save though.

    Thank you for joining the Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

    Have a purrfect Happy Tuesday. My best to your peeps. β™₯

  7. penny…..may bee grammie can give ewe sum penneez one day, then dad another, N mom de next, that way itz knot sew obvee uz !! yur lookin mitee gorgeouz, thatz a for sure ~~ ☺☺β™₯β™₯

  8. What a fun idea! We did a similar thing with dollars once, but I think it was a weekly thing. All I know is I kept stealing the money out and never did finish it! LOL

  9. Ellen,

    Tell Penny to keep her nose to the ground. No, I mean that literally because nearly every time I’m out, I will spot change on the ground. Usually, it’s a penny but I’ve seen nickles, dimes, and quarters. One time I spotted a $5 laying in a puddle of water and another time a $20 on the mall floor. The only money I retrieved was the $20 because it was a time we were really scraping to get by because DH was out of work and we had three small children. Every penny really counted!

  10. Penny, that’s a fantastic tip! Have you asked your Grammie if she can spot you a couple thousand pennies? The kitties here are tempted to ask their grandma for some pennies so that they can save up for lots of yummy treats by the end of the year. Purrs!

  11. That would be a lot of pennies, and I wouldn’t want to have to carry them to the bank. Maybe you could just save a penny a day for the whole year.

  12. Hmmmmm Not sure where that math came from Penny, but we think mommy might notice ifin we took that much money. MOL Altho’, mommy says Shad used to steal green papers every chance she got. MOL Mommy found a whole stash of money when they moved after she went to heaven. Big hugs

    Luv ya’

  13. Charlee: “You could try looking for pennies in the washing machine. Dada never empties change out of his pockets and it always ends up in there.”
    Chaplin: “I think that means he’s a money launderer!”
