How judgmental of you. Also, it is made up.
Venti is 20 in Italian. It's also the size of the largest cup at Starbucks, the 20oz one. I may or may not have ordered more than a few ventis in my life. I definitely have.
I decided that I needed to stash some cash away for Christmas. I always have intentions of doing this every year, but for some reason, the cash always gets used for something else which means I have to budget like a madwoman to find the extra money for Christmas. "NO MORE!" I screamed out loud, frightening the nice lady next to me at Walmart.
I got a photo box for $1 at Michaels and brought it home. I used my craft knife to cut a tiny slit above the label holder, big enough for dollars to slip through.
Then, I glued the top on. That's right, I glued the sucker shut.
I used my Silhouette to pretty it up a bit...
So, here's my plan: Every payday, I'll take $20 out of the bank in cash and shove it in the box. If I do it right away, I can budget like it doesn't even exist. Hopefully, by Thanksgiving when I plan on cracking this sucker open, I'll have a few bucks to use for Christmas shopping.
Also, the family is excited about how we should bust it open. They're a destructive lot, to be sure.
The Venti Project begins.
