Finding Freedom

How quickly can a fool find his money again?

I currently have a whole bunch of debt. Hmm...I wonder how much I could get for my kidneys?

What Do You Do With Your Change?
I have always had a habit of collecting my change. Generally I would just have a little cup, and when it got full, I would roll it and take it to the bank, much to displeasure of the tellers.

However, for the last several months, I have been saving all of my change in an empty water jug, like the kind you find on water coolers. I don't always have a lot of change, but it makes me happy to see that money grow little by little.

And what is my plan for that money? I want to use whatever I save to help on the honeymoon when my girlfriend and I get married.

Now, some of you, I'm sure, will say, why not roll it every once in a while, and stick it in a high interest savings account. While this isn't a bad idea, I like the fact that once I put it in the jar, it becomes a little less accessable to get out, and, because I know that, it's reasonably easy to just forget about the money.

Like a grown up piggy bank, I like that once I put the money inside I can just forget about it. Eventually I will have to deal with it for sure, but in the meantime, it's fun to watch it grow.
