So, Mr. J. Money over at Budgets are Sexy mentioned that I should take a pic of my plunder; how brilliant! So here are some sexy pictures of my gold dollars and why I save Pirate’s Gold.
It started like 6 years ago, I think??? My dad started giving these shiny little things to me here and there, for my birthdays and holidays. Immediately, I thought “Pirates Gold” and was hooked. Nope, I don’t have a treasure chest yet, but would like to find a small one someday.
Anyway, it is very difficult for me to part with these, which makes it easier to just save them. I have sort of pawned them to family once or twice, only in desperate situations. Unfortunately, said family member is highly unstable, I wasn’t able to purchase them back. So there went a few hundred of them. I haven’t always tried to save money like I do now, so these were a great starting point to get me moving in the right direction.
Saving gold dollars might not be realistic to some people, especially since they aren’t real gold. Like many things, there are pros and cons.
♦ I am saving. It still counts because it’s money either way, like saving your $1′s.
♦ I am far less likely to use them.
♦ They were all free because my dad gives them to me.
♦ They’re kinda fun to save.
♦ I’m not earning any interest on these, it’s not like it would be much though.
♦ People think I’m weird, not like I care, but still.
I figure as long as my dad keeps forking them over, I’ll keep saving them. Free money is free money.
