Pocket change, do you find there are times you have more or less?

    The coins build up over time and then you roll them up to change for bills or just deposit them. Then I have less change until the cycle rises again and it starts all over. Too much change will inevitably tear up your pockets...just sayin':sneaky:

    I either don't have enough to pay my bus fare, or so much it causes me to veer gently off course to the right as I walk along. I find there is no happy medium. :)

    I keep two jars of change at home. A little "piggy bank" type and a gallon jug...which gets filled from the "piggy bank" (which is actually a "Snowcrest Bear")

    When the gallon jug fills up, I cash it in. Last time it held $450...

    Yes, but that's where the other stuff goes. Keys, passes and stuff...

    I rarely have cash so it takes me quite a while to accumulate $30-40 in change. I do not carry change from day to day, if I have any when I get home it's in the jar. Hate having things in my pockets.

    My bank up until recently had a free change counter, which I used every now and then. They shut it down last week. I was sad.
