The Sealed Pot Challenge 2012

The Sealed Pot Challenge- a challenge started by Saving for Travel ( " LIttle Bits and Bobs of money are squirreled away in an assortment of SEALED POTS and the result is a nice chunk of money just in time for the holidays....or a treat, or lots of fun when we open them up in December 2012)

My sealed pot is a coffee container sealed with duct tape. It ain't pretty but it is durable and it has a nice handle to tote it with.

This was all the change that was in the sealed pot/ coffee container. It definitely was a lot more than I thought would be in there. I didn't weight it but it was quite heavy.

Look at the piles of change. It took about an hour or two do counting and rolling to finally get to this..........

The grand total was $150.00!! That was a lot more than I thought would be in there. The rolled change still sits on the dresser in our bedroom. We do have an anniversary to celebrate later this month so we will definitely put this money to good use.

We just re-taped the same pot and will be filling it up for next year!  Join "Saving For Travel" Sealed Pot Challenge 2013

A good way to effortlessly to build up money. However, a word of caution. My sister had a change container stolen out of her house. It was the only thing they took. The police told her that this was a common item for stealing these days because it's an easy in and out. I don't know what you will do with this information because it's hard to worry about everything, but I thought I would mention it.

Good Tip! Will put the pot in a not so noticeable location.

My father in law does that with all the money he picks up on the ground while going for his morning walks. Every Christmas it's tradition to dump his pot, separate and count the money. Some years he collects over $500! It's crazy what people drop or toss to the ground. He's even found bills... hmmm.. I smell a blog post coming up! Great going and this is an awesome challenge I hope others jump in and save as well!!! Cheers Mr.CBB

Meanwhile in Indonesia, especially in Java, leech oil is commonly used for enlarging the sizegenetics of a typical male vital organ. It's believed that massaging your penis using warm leech oil for around 10 minutes daily will increase penis sizegenetics permanently. Leech oil is made by cooking the leech and other herbs inside fresh green coconuts that are boiled over charcoals. While there are a number different types of leeches (a lot of them don't feed on human's blood, surprisingly), similar to Greek and Indian therapy, the Javanese only use the Hirudo medicinalis over other species.
