I am constantly finding spare change around my house. It’s usually in the washing machine, in the cup holder in my car, and in just about every junk drawer in my house. I could probably buy a meal with all the change in the bottom of my purse. It does not seem like a lot because it is just change – but it can really add up fast!
My son was learning about money in homeschool last week and in about a minute we found $5 in change! He asked if he could keep the change he found – so I let him since he did such a great job counting the money.
Have you ever collected all your spare change and used it for a fun treat? I have heard about people filling up 5 gallon jugs with coins to pay for a fun vacation or a special date night. I think that is a great way to squeeze a little extra cash into your budget.
So what do you do after you have all that change laying around? It would probably take you hours to count it and roll it so you could bring it to the bank. Don’t waste your time – there is a better way to redeem your coins! Coinstar kiosks at located at your local grocery stores and they make it very easy to turn your coins into e-Certificates. It’s fast and easy and they have a lot of e-Certificate options to choose from.
