We have two colorful little tins sitting on top of our refridgator that we throw our pennies in. They have been part of our kitchen decor for over 20 years.  No matter where we move they end up on top of the refridgator.

 It takes awhile to fill them up,  but when full we have a nice chunk of money to throw into savings, buy needed groceries or just go out for a nice meal.

No matter what we do not miss those pennies and it is fun to pick up that heavy little bank every once in awhile.

When it comes time to cash in we sit and roll them if our bank does not have a coin counter. There was a time that banks had coin counters but that service is disappering. And we will not bring them to one of those coin counters. They take a percentage of my money for the service and I do not really need a gift card to any of the places offered.

Where do you throw your change, a tin can, glass gar or even an old wine bottle? Do you even save your change. We basically save pennies only, I do have a small glass for the other change but that money usually gets spent as needed.

Thanks for stopping by.. lets keep saving together and please remember
Never under estimate the value of a small amount of money... Grace


  1. I have a jar that says "Rainy Day Fund" that we throw all of our spare change into. It's amazing how fast it adds up!
