D.I.Y. Travel Fund Jar with Custom Stickers from Sticker App

Travel Jar_01

I remember when I was a kid and I could not wait to be an adult because it meant being able to buy whatever I wanted and eating ice cream for breakfast. Then I became an adult and I realized that it really means tax returns, loan applications, escrow and other awful things, which is significantly less fun. The main thing that upsets me about not having the funds we want, is that we don’t get to travel nearly as much as we want to, but we are trying to change that and make it a top priority starting with the travel fund jar!

This is my new favorite obsession and I am so excited to share it with you all. At the end of each day, I have been dropping loose change in our piggy bank and since we are moving I had decided to open it up. Turns out there was like $40 inside in nickels and dimes! This got us thinking that we should start slipping some ones and fives in there and making it a priority, but in order to make it fit into our “travel theme” we decided to create a brand new jar from an upcycled mason jar.

I teamed up with CaseApp a while back when I got my awesome laptop skin, and this time I got the honor of teaming up with their sister label, StickerApp. Sticker App is awesome because not only can you design custom stickers of whatever artwork you choose at an affordable price, they also offer this awesome recycled kraft paper option that is eco-friendly!

So how can you make your very own stickers with Sticker App? Simply log on, upload any design creation you want (logos, wedding favors, the possibilities are endless!) or choose from their vast library of pre-made stickers! And the best part? You get 20% off if you use the code SWELL20 before August 31st!


How do you afford to travel?

    Love this idea! We have a hefty change jar but I’d be excited to see what would happen in a year if we starting dropping bills in there!

      Right!? We are so glad we started adding bills! This is funding our surf retreat to Nicaragua! 🙂

    I love this! We have a travel jar too! Well, sort of. It’s a large jar that we drop change into with no goal for the money, but now (thanks to your inspiring post) it’ll become a travel jar!
