so, does anyone pick up pennies off the street? i'll proudly say that i do. i also have friends who hate to carry change, so they actually throw it away. literally. i always take their pennies, and i'll bet i've made $10 off them over the years...shoot, that's almost a cd!

another thing...if there's change in the cup holder of my parents' car for more than a couple days, i say it's free game

*cough* i'm certainly not dutch...

I usually try to spend change as I get it- I hate having my wallet stuffed with change.

my "fill the platypus to get to silverchair...or buy a guitar " venture isn't going

to plan.
I have kids at high school, so I had to bust into the platypus moneybox to get money for their school sport fee.I always try to keep my $1 and $2 coins for them
ouizy sounds organised, but you need to be. I had to use a laundromat during the drought, and I wasn't quite used to the routine of always having the right change.It's a bit of a hassle if you don't.
I do have a small jar of 5c pieces somewhere, but I won't get too excited, that will add up to about $15 I guess....silverchair or bust
Well done to your mum Angela, a magnum, good thinking.
I know those $50 moneybox tins...they are huge, good luck.....lifting it when it is full

I can't say, I see many coins lying around SFB..if I did I 'd pick it up and call it lucky. hmmm, I feel a story coming on....the time my wallet...

I best go

me and my brother used to superglue pennies to the street and go sit in the front bedroom and laugh when poor unsuspecting people tried to pick them up we were very young, maybe i was 9 and he was 7 ? somit like that

I save my change until a time when i really need some money. I cashed in about 80 dollars my junior year of high school to pay for a band trip to Las Vegas. I cashed in about 80 more last summer when I was unemployed to help pay for rent. Right now I probably only have a couple dollars. I've horded change ever since I was little.

I have a bowl on my dresser that I throw all of my loose change in. I hardly ever use coin when I buy something. Once the bowl gets full I'll roll the coin and use it to buy something totally frivolous. I usually end up with over $100. I hate the actual rolling of the coins though.

I use some of it but the stuff I don't just stays in the gigantic Coke bottle bank I have. I cash it in when I go on a vacation and whatever money I had in there is just added to my spending money. Sometimes it's not more than $20 or $30 bucks but other times it's been closer to $100. My taxes and loose change are usually vacation money.
