Do you store spare change?

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

Yes, we save it in.large jars & I change it in every few months. I save the funds for a special day of fun, last year we went to Lego land

I save spare change in a upside down top from a spindle of CD's... I have no idea why I'm saving it, but it has come through a few times in the past.  My kids also like adding change to my collection.

Kinda. In the laundry room I have a jar that I keep change that came out of the laundry.

We have a piggy bank and when it gets full we dump that into a coffee can. When the coffee can gets full we take it to the bank, and then either use it for vacation, Christmas, or put in into savings.

Eh,  I give it to my kid to put in her bank. I just put about $1.25 in change in there. Some goes in the coin pocket in the car for (incidentals).

In my car. I use it to pay parking meters. If I ever get change when I'm not in the car, I give it to DS for his piggy bank.

That's a good idea!

I put my change into a huge water cooler bottle. 99% of the time my change doesn't make it in there though. DS usually finds it and it goes into his piggy bank.
