    I am totally in on this one....we already do this and the change jar really helped when we went to Florida a couple of years ago.

    I think I want to use it this year for a Christmas fund!!

    I'm in again.I won't have as much change now that I'm retired but every little bit adds up. Haven't really decided what to do with it yet. Maybe save it for my 50th wedding anniversary in a few years.

    I took my change jars this year (three of them) and emptied them into the Salvation Army kettles. I think I will do the same in 2012.

    I'm in... I actually started my change jars at the end of November but already have a $30 in them. I am used to not carrying cash but I am trying to change that habit so that I don't end up overdrafting my account at all this year (only happened a couple times last year but it still bites when that happens) I have my totals in my siggy and it's broken up into 3 jars... Pennies, Quarters and Other Change.

    I have two change jars. One promised to a friend's daughter. She gets a piece of silver for every single day she "planks" and posts a FB photo. She's doing this to raise money for the humane society and I labeled a jar for her

    The other change jar is ours and I think I'll save for vacation spending money.
