LuvLeoDiCaprio 6 years I keep mine in a digital coin counter, it's dorky but I love it because I will always know how much change I actually have. aimeeb 6 years "Shoe Fund" piggy bank... legalbeagle 6 years I bought a piggy bank- literally a giant silver pig- a year ago and have just been throwing change in it here and there, sometimes those 1 dollar coins. I was so broke the other day that I cashed in it at CoinStar and got about $120!!!!!!!! Ive already started over, putting an extra $5 in here and there... hopefully I can put the money toward a vacation next year or something! weirdy 6 years I save it in a cute winnie the pooh jar at the office..what i do is just keep it in my purse until i have a chance to empty it out into the jar.. and then at the end of the month i bank it into my wedding account.. it does add up to quite a bit.. almostloli 6 years they're for parking fees!!! sandy82 6 years I put them in a jar. one day a month I sort them and put them in coin wrappers to take to the bank. ilanac13 6 years my change finds it's way into a box/jar thingy - so we have it all centralized in one place expresso14 6 years I have two jars - one for dimes and one for quarters, which I'll count and roll every couple months for my 'fun' money (travel, shoes or purses). Nickels and pennies stay in the wallet because they're a pain to count and roll and it's easier to give the clerk 11 cents rather than them counting out 89 cents. akrsouth 6 years I use dollar coins as well, like carrying art in your wallet Spectra 6 years I use my change in the soda machine at work, but I also keep a bunch of change in my car's ashtray...I always need to have at least a quarter in the car to use in the carts at the grocery store. I don't usually cash it in, but maybe I should be saving my pennies and taking them to the bank every so often. hippiecowgirl 6 years My husband and I have a jar in the kitchen. The last time we emptied and rolled the contents it was around $400. KMattes 6 years I really, really hate to touch change. Yuck! muchacha 6 years I am a little neurotic about change, the oddest part of which is I can't stand the sound of change - it makes me wince, like nails on a chalkboard to some. In Canada we have loonies ($1 coins) and twonies (toonies? - $2 coins) so I usually keep those with me along with quarters. Nickles and dimes go in a big aluminum with which I plan to save for a trip to Africa. Finally, pennies go to plant trees in Israel in a blue Tzedakah box. esmerb 6 years I keep mine in an Old Navy piggy bank I bought years ago. He even has a festive little hat. I love feeding him! hibiscus96818 6 years I keep loose change in a cup holder in my car. heatherhas 6 years I have a plastic elephant piggy bank :) starangel82 6 years The middle console of my car and a big plastic cup at home. Although for some reason, I've been feeling a strange nostalgia for a piggy bank. Carrie-Sue 6 years I use my change when possible, but I do keep a jar of coins that I'm filling for when I go back to college this fall, so I can cash in and have a nice chunk of cash to spend when I inevitably end up needed it :) bleached 6 years I keep it in a piggy bank that was given to me when I was in grade 2 or 3 Anne-B 6 years I said jar, but it's really a cute box that one of the kids I teach gave me as a present. Her grandfather hand-made it. It holds about $50 for emergency use. bellaressa 6 years I have a large yogurt container that I put my change in if I have any at the end of the week. miss-malone 6 years In a jar, then I'll just grab some for my purse if I need them.. MsWalton 6 years I'm not really able to save my change, since I use it for tolls. Perhaps I should invest in EZPass, so I can save my change. RosaDilia 6 years I dump my change in one of those 5 gal. water cooler bottles. It has encouraged my son to save more seriously. Any change he finds in his coat pockets or anywhere else around the house he puts in the bottle. Everytime he adds change to the bottle he keeps telling that he can't wait till it's full.
