rolled up a bunch of change I had in an old coffee jar and to my amazement I had $148.00. I didn't realize that it would be that much. I still have a lot of pennies I haven't gotten to yet. What a pleasant surprise, it will surely come in handy when I take them to the bank for a cash in. How many times have you put aside your spare change and when you cashed them in you were surprised at how much you had?

Oh yes, there is nothing like "found money". I have little wicker baskets full of quarters dimes & nickels I haven't taken to the bank yet. The last time I found $80 worth of change I collected from all of my purses. It is amazing how fast spare change accumulates.

found money is always a good thing like when you check the pockets of an old coat or something, and come out with money, that is always good.

Itsn't it exciting to count up money and get a big suprise when you get done! We have a change jar and to just sit and look at it it sure dosn't look like much but boy lay it out on the table and sometimes what a big suprise. Than the question is do I pay a bill with it ? or do I use it to do something nice for the family?

I always save my loose change and put it into a large in,I try to save it all of the year round and then at the end of november I take it too the supermarket and put it all into the change machine,a wonderful invention those machines lol,you feed in the loose change and it counts it up and gives you a ticket with the sum on at the end of the transaction,then you take it to the customer helpdeak and they change it into paper money for you.But I once got well and truly caught,my son was home from university and he was broke as usual,he asked for money towards his gas bill,I said to him that if he cared to count out the money in my change tin,then he could out it towards his bill,and when he counted it lol there was over eighty pounds there,well I nearly fainted lol I meant a little help,not eighty pounds worth of help.

Sabing spare change is a great way to have extra cash. You don't miss the few cents you throw in there, but as you noticed, it does add up over time. Good job. I save my "spare change" my using my debit and credit card too. It's all explained over on my blog (link in profile). I'm single and don't purchase much but I average about $15 a month that way.

A little money, if we collect it everyday, and never counting the amount, will be increase everyday, and at time we count it, we will be have much money
