A penny saved, is a penny that can be used in 2012.....Submitted by ron_paul-bot_12413 on Thu, 12/23/2010 - 10:03
....for the Ron Paul presidential campaign that is. Years ago I started saving my change in a huge water jar given to me by my grandmother. It's beautiful blue glass. Over the years I've used the "money" for different things and for the past several years I've used it for spending money while on vacation. Children seem harder to please once they catapult past 12 so the money always came in handy. Last year I had saved over $700 simply from pocket change. While I did max-out my contributions in 2007, it did come at some , seemingly at the time, major sacrifices.So after 2008 had passed I bought a new jar. It's brown glass which I've adorned with Ron Paul stickers and such. I still put change in the vacation jar, but I do this at a 2-1 ratio in favor of the vacation jar because I have more time to fill the brown jar. I'm over $400 in the brown jar right now and over $500 in the blue jar( I've been placing extra money in the brown jar whenever I do some odd jobs here and there ; ) ) So, I thought I would share this in hopes of other people doing the same. It would make maxing-out for the 2012 run much easier. If everyone does this we will have a jump start to get the message out! Just a thought. Merry Christmas everyone!
