I often think what a waste coins are, they fill our wallets, bottom of our purses, briefcases, cars, they end up everywhere. However, if you use your coins with a common knowledge of saving, they can add up.
Everyone has an event that they are saving for and you would be surprised how fast coins can add up. Throughout the years we have saved our coins and cashed them at times to pay for uniforms, boardwalk money, vacation money etc. I’m always so amazed at the dollars amount cashed in.
Recently we have been putting change in our grandsons piggy bank, his mom took it to the bank and it had $88.00. That is a nice deposit and small change went a long way. When it comes to saving money, people often say well I could only put a dollar here or there, don’t be shy or embarrassed of small savings. A little here and there will go a long way.
It’s a great tool to teach children and grown kids, saving money is hard, the first step may is often the hardest. We all save for the expected things in life, birthdays, holidays, cars but it is often the unexpected that can have you in a panic.
So gather your loose change and see where it gets you. May you be greatly surprised at the end of the month or year! We hope our loose change will one day pay for our grandsons first car.
How fun would it be to say I purchased my first car with some loose change!
