An ATM piggy bank which recognizes your coins and bills and keeps track of how much you've saved, your savings goal and how much more you need to save.
Love the concept, but am resisting (for now) because I can do the keeping track part on my own and I would probably be better off saving the 299 Swedish crowns that this costs. I reserve the right to change my mind though.
I've never come across this before, but a search for a cheaper one on Amazon revealed that there are several on the market. Have since realized that I can't buy one from Amazon though because it won't be able to recognize Swedish currency...duh-uh!

Had a period when I would highlight practically all the text and then progressed to underlining in pencil so I could erase my markings if needed. My quirk when underlining was that the grammar had to be correct even when you only read the underlined parts (for example, two separate underlined phrases had to be connected by a conjunction or separated by a punctuation mark).
However, I kept my college books pristine in order to preserve their resale value.
Writing on my med books would save so much time compared to jotting down the important stuff in a notebook and resale value is not a consideration because I plan to keep these books...and yet...I just can't bring myself to do it.
