    Our’s are in a goldfish tank and it gets taken in when it’s plum full and we’re going on vacation. It holds about $300!

    We usually put our change in Hunter’s piggy bank. Otherwise I just end up using it to buy Mt Dew at work.

    We have a GIANT coke bottle and the last time Paul took it in he had to use pails and there was almost $800 in it. We about croaked.

    We have one of those big cheeseball barrels from Sams club that we put just silver coins in..Have been saving in it about 10 years now, Its just about to the rim now, Id say there is a lot in it for $$.. I have no intentions of cashing it in..Saving it for a rainy day.Plus i can’t really pick it up its so heavy.

    I don’t spend ANY change. Not even a penny. I keep my quarters in a large pickle jar with a slit cut in the lid. My other change goes in to an empty 5 gl water bottle. The pickle jar is n top of my dressor and the 5 gl water bottle is on the floor in between my dressor and bed. Each night I come in and empty my pockets.

    I normally empty them once a year but the water bottle gets so heavy I can barely pick it up! The most I’ve ever had is about $1,200:00 but it’s usually between $800-$900.

    Folgers coffee cans! 🙂 Mostly only silver. It depends on how broke we are, so we actually haven’t had to cash it in a long time!

    I put them in a little box on my dresser, and when that gets too full, I transfer it to a small metal container. I have an unknown number of containers filled with coins in various nooks and corners of my house. They date back at least to my 2nd apartment, i.e., 1992. I have never cashed any in since then. I have no idea how much money we’re talking about. I will say that since I normally buy stuff on credit, I usually don’t have change in my pockets at the end of the day. Nowadays I’m using it for church too – I give the kids quarters for the offering plate and I bring some for the basket they keep at the coffee hour counter. And sometimes I use it to pay the kids for yard work. So it doesn’t accumulate very fast nowadays.

    I have a couple places. I’ve got a large (quart) ball jar on the kitchen counter, and a zip-lock bag in my dresser. I’ve recently started saving singles, just to see how many I can accumulate. But I generally don’t save change. My change generally stays in my purse, and gets spent. I rarely bring it in and put it in those spots.

    I used to keep mine in a gallon whisky bottle till one day i was cleaning and i just barely tapped that glass bottle and it no more glass bottles for me.

    I save my spare change for my kids. At the end of the week I empty my purse. The pennies go in a piggy bank and the silver coins go in a glass jar. When the jar gets full, my friend Cher takes it to her credit union beacuse they have a free coin machine for their customers.

    I try to put the money in their savings. However, sometimes I buy stuff for them with it. It usually adds up to a little over $200 per full silver coin jar.
