  • I do, kind of. They don't use pennies in Japan, so I have a container just for pennies and I have two Barbie sized recycling bins for my yen and American change...but location of where they kids would know more than I do. I've been having to toss the extra change in my purse till I can get my change containers back.

  • I have several banks to put coins in and a tin with flowers on it just for pennies.

  • I sure do. It's an old nice thick 1 gallon size plastic apple juice jug that still has the handle on it. I keep it in my bedroom next to my desk and whenever anyone is in need of a bit of cash, say we're short of money that week and need some milk or a little gas for the car for example, there's usually plenty in there. Whenever any of us come home with change in our pockets or purse, we empty it out into the jug knowing it will be needed at some point in the future. That jug of coins has gotten us out of a jam or two in the past too. You'd be surprised at how much money you can save up in one of those.
