Country Lore: Cookie Jar Savings

Saving a dollar or so a day can add up to big savings over the course of a year.

| August/September 2005

My grandmother used to call it her “cookie jar fund.” It’s a simple and easy-to-do plan, and over a one-year period, it really adds up. Every day for a year, I placed my pocket change plus $1 in a mason jar. See the chart to see how it adds up if you faithfully contribute every day.
