Planning ahead is better than trying to fix it later

Debt Cancellation Challenge – New Additions

Hello everyone!  Granny here!!  I hope you are doing well with the challenge.  While waiting for an appointment this weekend, I went into one of the local stores just to browse around.  Not looking for anything in particular, all of a sudden I found the cutest additions to add to the debt cancellation challenge to assist others with.

They were less than $5, so I went for it.  What excited me the most about them is they are little banks.  There are slots in the top of each shoe and the back of each bag to insert money.

This gave me an idea to assist my loved ones the next time they come over for a visit.  I’m always stressing how important it is to minimize debts and maximize your savings.  The shoe and bag bank combo would not only make a nice accessory to your home, but also nice gifts to get others started with their savings.  It doesn’t matter how little or how much you save during the challenge.  What’s important is that you save.

  1. These are too cute! They would definitely assist me. I’m a very visual person. I like checklists, flow charts, and anything else that helps me track my progress. Having cute shoe and purse coin banks would definitely help me do that! Awesome find.

    • Thanks Mylah!

      Most of my loved ones are just like you. That’s where the idea of having these around for them came into play. I almost want to keep them for myself so I’m going to see if the store have more this weekend. I believe I’m going to use them for Christmas gifts. I always have/or find so much change. I can just fill each one at least halfway to get them started.

      Thanks for stopping by and come again.

  3. Hello Sue!

    These items do make wonderful gifts. I’m hoping to find more or other items like these to fill half way with change and pass them on as gifts for Christmas.

    Thanks for stopping by and come again 🙂
