What do you do with your extra change? When I was little everyday when my dad came home he would empty his pockets full of change and give it to us kids.I use to save that money until the weekend and buy lots of candy Now that Im older when I empty my own pockets at the end of the day I throw all my change in a cointainer I have in my room.When the cointainer is full I go to a coinstar and change the coins and buy myself a little something that I had been holding off on..I think the most I have gotten from my extra change is about $120..I saved forever..lol What do you with your extra change?Do you save then exchange it for paper money?if so whats the most that you have saved?

i never spend my change and i own a coin sorter. Every day when i get home i sort my coins, roll them myself and then once or twice a year we take that change to vegas and have a mini vacation. i try to avoid coinstar since they take a percentage, my coin sorter was an xmas gift and it does the same thing plus my bank cashes them out for free. the cashiers always look at me weird, but it makes sense. now Bank of America is doing the same thing, with their keep the change program. If my item is 1.02, i wont give them pennies, I get my 98 cents back and put it in the sorter. then in a couple of months i have 2 to 300 dollars.
