  • We have a ton of change in a big water bottle. A few years ago we cashed it out and had about $300 in it that we took as spending money on vacation. If we need change, we exchange bills for what we take out. I think we will wait a while to cash it out again.

  • Good for you!!
     

    We've been saving change too!!! It's amazing how fast it accumulates. The first $300 we saved went towards a repair for our vehicle and then we saved almost enough to pay our light bill this month (over $300).

  • The same thing happened to me Rosalind! Had I not had a huge jar of change, I don't know how Kim and I would have eaten those first few months.

    Dh and I rarely use cash these days. We use our debit card for almost everything. What little change we have goes into our cars for turnpike tolls.

  • We pay with cash and try to pay with just bills, sometimes this puts $.10 in your purse and sometimes it puts $.98. We put ours all in a jar in our room and when it is full we cash it in. It is usually about $150-$200 when we do and it only takes 3-4 months to save up that amount. It depends on what is happening at the time we cash it in how we use it, sometimes it is xtra $ for a vacation and sometimes it is for our debt reduction.
