We keep a coin jar & count every other month or so. We just roll up the change & deposit it.

We put all of our spare change in my daughter's piggy bank. Only count it when it is almost too full to lift!

I have a piggy bank that is enormous! I don't count it - I just toss coins in when I think of it (or when my pocketbook is getting WAY too heavy - LOL)

My daughter loves to throw all her change in there and see what the total she has to spend is.

We have a HUDE mason type jar full of change. When summer comes we roll about half the jar and can get about 500.00 from it. This past year we used coinstar. What a time saver!!!

We have a 24-in mason jar from my mother-in-law and it's about 1/4 full. I love the Coinstar promotion, since the regular commission fee is 8.9%! We're going to go cash in our change this month. Thanks for the heads-up!

We put all loose change into a piggy bank and then take it to the coinstar every time it's full. I have, until this point, always gotten an amazon.com gift certificate. And, I believe Amazon is joining the 40/50 promotion this weekend!!!

We totally use a jar (large Mason jar) for our coins...and twice a year we bring them to Coinstar to cash in! It's a nice treat! :)

I keep a coin jar for the "little" things...when the kids need a dollar or two for school...I send in the change!
My husband has had a penny jar for a REALLY LONG time...we have never counted the pennies inside.

WE COUNT OUR CHANGE ABOUT EVERY 2-3 MONTHS. IT DOES ADD UP! WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.

HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!

we have a coin container on our counter. we rarely count it. we find out how much it is when we take it to the bank. sometimes we deposit it into our account, other times we'll cash out and let our son use it on a trip.

We usually put all the change into the kids piggy banks. Took it to coinstar last time they were full then deposited into the bank.
