I'm sitting here and went into my room and I have change all over my dresser, and then a thought came to mine, what do other people do with all that change. I have a container that I put all my change in. Do most people do that too??????

I throw all my change (except pennies and nickels) into a little 4x6" treasure chest...I let my daughter take it to the supermarket because they have a coin counter machine there, and do you believe that little chest held $75.00!

Way too much allowance for a 15yr old.

Halloween, good idea! I keep my spare change in a crystal bowl. My daughter is always "borrowing" from it so somehow the bowl never empties.

Well its almost that time of year again, and the kids do the trick or treat thing. I give them the change instead of candy and they just love that!!!

Hi Everyone,

Hey NY Chick, I am lol at your last post to the Soaking wet woman. But I would not send her any money, I would tend to send her a bag of huggies or pampers, LMAO as she could use them more don't you think?

Hey triple 3 smile,

Don't you mean beach towels instead of bath towels? Beach towels soak up more, lol.

And for everyone about the spare change thing. Does any other city other than Los Angeles have places with those city of hope charity containers at 7-11 quick stop stores or circle K's that you can drop your change in? I like those charities, American heart or lung association, Children's foundation, etc. Or a homeless person on the street corner. There are plenty of places in Los Angeles and Hollywood areas that you can donate it right there when you receive the change back from a purchase. We even have a pennies tray next to cash registers in stores so if you do not have a extra one or two, you can grab them, or if you have a spare few, you can leave them too. Then there are the places like Universal Studios, Venice Beach boardwalk, Santa Monica Pier, Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills where starving artist and muscian's come and place out their hats or containers so ppl walking by can donate any coins or paper bills to them. Change is a hassle and adds up weight wise very fast. Monetary it is minute and just weighs the pants pockets down mostly for me.

BTW, I like to keep my dresser or night stand clear so I do not use them for change build up areas. Just donate it!

Very funny Bill, Sharpie .. LOL here. What do I do with mine, if there is any left LMAO ...

(1) Into the car coin box, to pay the many tolls (roads)in the city. Try give the toll collector 50, 1 sen pieces, boy .. can they get hopping mad there.

(2) Whatever is left can take it to my mum, the kids now want money when they come visiting during Eids (celebration at the end of the of Muslim fasting month). Bonnie, do you remember the Ang Pau giving during Chinese New Year ... now every communities has to give this so called Ang Pau too ... kind of adopting each other's culture. Luckily no gift giving is expected.

(3) Just throw it out to the wedding guests ... see here, bride & groom raining hard coins!!!



yeah, Maayan, that is why I avoid Chinese New Year like the plague..these days kids don't expect small change in their Ang Pau, they want the big notes...

Bonnie, I've never seen charity chest at an airport. I'll ask about them here.



I see them in Singapore, Japan, alot of airports in Asia .

Also for local coins , of course they go to the car till for parking meters here. Coins are a pain , they weigh a ton to carry around. So I try to use them as much as possible .

Bill those loonies & toonies do add up fast...they don't go into my jar, but sometimes my purse is so filled, I swear if I were mugged, it would make a good weapon! LOL



I am going to keep saving my loonies and toonies. Canadian money is best spent on Canadian women. lol.

I throw all mine in a huge glass container. When I get enough of it, I deposit it into the Jaimster's account. Works the best with Canadian money. Those loonies and toonies add up quickly.

Since I travel a bit for work and play and carry lots of different currencies/changes..they are lump together in a pot and sent to charity intermittently or when I remember to drop them at airport charity chests or some airlines like Virgin makes it their special effort to collect in envelopes provided on flight.
