Do you store spare change?

Where do you keep it? Are you saving it up for something?

I don't. I have a change thingy in my purse, and I try to use change when I pay something in cash. I usually use my debt card though.

Yes we do! Once a year we dip into it and do something fun.  Last year we had enough for a two night stay at a near by resort.

I have this ceramic jug I keep change in. We just use it when needed, it's usually for bake sales at school and little things like that.

We have a 3 liter Barcardi bottle we got on a cruise. We drop our change in it.

I spilt the daily change with my daughters (3 & 4). They have a big piggy they keep it in to save up for their toys they want or whatever. And I have a jar I save it in for my next tattoo!

I used to, but sometimes Dh runs out of spending money... and hijacks the change

Yes, we wash out juice bottles and put all our change in them. When the bottle gets full  we take it and exchange it for bills, then we put it in a fire proof safe for something special later on.

Yes, though we don't get much of it anymore as we don't use as much cash as we used to.
