So I have an idea...

I want to make little boxes, or cans or something like that for all the closest people in my life. I want to put their names on it and their birth dates and everything and then every month I want to put money into each one so that at the end of the year and with their birthdays I am able to buy them a decent gift or come up with something to make for them or even give them the money if they'd prefer that. . .

What do you think? Good idea... Bad idea... ?!
Which boxes / cans / container should I use and how do I go about doing it?
Any pointers? Or websites I could visit? Or other ideas?
Please Share...

Go to the dollar store if you have something like that where you live and you will get cute options.. !
Or... just take small glass jars with screw lids.. they are my fav... and wrap it in ur favorite paper and write on it about the person you are saving for... and then just add..
You can use differnt colors.. or better add colors as well the person's pic!!! :)
more inspiration to save!!!!! :)

And its a great idea.. I am gonna borrow it and apply! :)

I think it's a great idea, although the person whose birthday is the closest to the time you have your boxes done will have the smallest present :P

Indi - Thanx! Great idea! (Not that we have a dollar store but we have something called 'Crazy Store' and 'Excitement Store' that has cheaper options than other stores. Can't get everything I want there though.

Jenn - Thanks hope it works!

Kys - =D *blushing*

Ella - Good point. What to do... Mmmmmmm....

7upkels - =D Yay!
