Loose Change

I used to collect quarters when I had to do my laundry at a laundromat. I found that little baggie when I was cleaning out one of my drawers recently. Counting it up, I had $8.

I keep some quarters at work. Our vending machines are subsidized to $0.50 for everything, so when I feel like a snack and haven't brought one from home, I don't mind using a few quarters now and then!

I also have a small tin that I use to collect my loose change. About once a month (or more often if I remember), I empty most of my change into the tin. Now that it's 2009, I want to collect my change more aggressively and use it for Christmas gifts at the end of the year (you can get gift cards/certificates from CoinStar machines and bypass the counting fee) or into one of my savings funds. :)

What do you with your loose change?

I try to use up the lose change I have. I really only use cash for lunch at work, and so I'll try to pay in exact change to get rid of the coins. It also keeps the number of paper dollars higher in my wallet, so I take money out of my account less often.
