Cool Saving Change.....

I have never been great at saving or even budgeting but I have gathered a novice grove,and I must say I'm doing pretty good.
I have been paying off high % debt (small amounts) and saving change!!! Yeah saving change is where I gain the $.In just over a month dh and I have managed to save $67.50 in just change!
 
General rule in the house is if change is found in clothes or in the washer/dryer it's the piggy banks (cow bank in my case).We are gathering change from the cars and from pockets.In just 2 wees I had $5.75 in just my Suburban!!!!
 
I can't believe how quickly its adding up.
 

We still don't know what were going to use the saved change for but well I'm sure there will be a good use for it!
So what do you do with all your loose change?

WTG!!! We did that for awhile, but now we give it to the kids to put in their piggy banks. It is suprising how quickly it adds up!

We gather the change and put it in the piggy bank (cow).Then when she feels heavy we sit down and count it and put it into the coffee can and stash it up high.We keep an on going count on the side of the can.We even throw in a few $ bills for good measure.
Shoot by summer I may have enough change to fly my sister out here from SC!
 
I didn't even think about that!

We do that too. We use most of it for vacations and I have my own little coffee cup that I used to cash in at those Coinstar things to pay for my Starbucks. Since I can't have caffeine anymore it is just sitting there. I'm not sure where to allocate it. LOL!
