Spare the coins!


via

I love having coin banks; pulling out spare change from my pockets and depositing it in my own little bank every end of the day is just automatic for me. And I have to say the best part is finding out how much I have saved once I figured that the bank is full and is in need of some emptying. It's like finding spare cash when you least expect it, be it from the laundry or inside book pages; and you suddenly have the money to buy those new shoes you've been raving about!

Sadly though, I recently had to empty my overflowing bank(s) when i heard local bank and government officials pleading to the people to stop putting all those coins aside as there is now a shortage of coins in the country. Haha, I think everyone I know was doing the same thing, and obviously, most of the nation is too. And so i did the right thing and gave the coins to Jay for him to exchange to the bank! I won't tell how much, but it was huge!!!

Do you keep coin banks too? Or do you leave it to the kids?

  1. I have a piggy bank where I store change for the vending machine at school. It's mostly diet coke money. Good stuff :)

  5. A shortage of coins? Never heard of that... Not good at saving coins, they just lie around and someone takes them and spends them. Perhaps I need to change my ways?

  7. Haha! One time I found about two hundred dollars in my coin bank. I think I was a very frugal child.
