I like making things that give instant gratification. Any longer than a few hours on a project and I'll probably lose interest, or it will become a chore and no longer enjoyable. Hence, making things that take 5 minutes or less makes me happy!
On the weekend I whipped up this savings jar to help me focus on saving money purely for running related stuff I have planned for 2015. Race entry fees can get up towards a hundred bucks sometimes, so putting aside some gold coins whenever I have spare change should go a long way towards helping me enter all the events I want to try next year!
