you save up your spare change and if so, do you spend it on something special/what
do you do with it?
I do. There is no designated purpose for the accumulation. When the jar is filled, I cash it in.
I toss the change that ends up in the laundry in a pile. When there's a significant pile of it, I use the money-counter thing at the grocery store and use it for buying groceries.
My approach is more hoarding than saving. After all one never knows when you'll need a quarter for the Laundromat or a shilling for the meter--and I've had a washing machine for longer than Great Britain has had metric money.
I've got a money box for coppers... when I can't cram any more in I take it to the bank and pay it off my credit card. I'm boring!
No. I try to keep my spare change to a small amount, and use it as I go.
Sometimes I spend it on parking meters. Sometimes my change container will fill up (but that hasn't happened in a long time) and I'll take it to the bank & put it in savings.
I don't save
my spare change. I search for state quarters that my friend and I are
still looking for,
I only accumulate enough change to use in soda machines and the like.
I just kind of have my spare change laying around in different places. I don't save it up for anything. Usually I just end up giving it to my son.
Our family saves our change sin one of those big water jugs. We save it for vacation.
It isn't that I save it, I just don't like carrying it. We'll drop it in the Coinstar when the jar's full.
I save my change to use when I deliver pizzas. It comes in handy for giving change to customers. Also I save it to wash my car.
