what do you do with your loose change?

put it in a jar, wait til it gets full (without ever dipping in to it) & then turn it in? Put it in a jar & dip in to it? Roll it? throw it away? let it collect dust? What do you do?

  • I put all our loose change in a piggy bank for our son and when it is full we roll it and take it to the bank and put it in his savings!

  • I put it in a jar and use it for my "mom needs a cup of Starbucks while dad has the toddler" shopping days or for a treat. My hubby and my son get the majority of everything else they want that bit is for me. Lol

  • I spend it same as bills, I am not lazy like so many other people in that way. I choose to take the few extra SECONDS it takes to count out that $.37 cents of change on a $1.37 bill.

  • For us it isn't out of laziness that we have change, we live in a country where most of their money is change, so it isn't a matter of inconvienience, we have always just wanted to do a change jar for our son. He has a CD we put money into every month, but this is for his savings account.

  • a few years back I decided not to spend any quarters that I got and over 6 months I saved 300.00 and we had a nice mini vacation.

    but my job (dunkin donuts) i get lots of change (and thank you for that) so I roll it weekly and it helps to pay the bills
