    I usually keep roling them as I go and deposit once I have enough but it would be fun to save it all year and see how much I have.

    I have three glass containers - one for quarters, one with a really skinny neck that will only fit dimes and a big wine jug for pennies and nickels. Shall just continue to keep adding to them all. All monies will be used for personal fun money - hopefully for a vacation/cruise for DH and me!!

    I'm up for this too. I rarely carry cash so I do not have much change usually but when I do I add it to a small tin. I have seen the banks that count the change for you as you drop it in but I do not think I will invest in one... just yet anyway.

    Took the small amount of change I had to the bank on Thur .. $8.00+ something.

    Added $1.39 as seed money after running payday (THur)

    Added more change today.

    I save all my change in a small plastic globe bank. Half full it is about $25.00 ... it's never been full LOL

    I take it to the bank once a month and let their machine count it. I use the money on whatever I need it for, sometimes it is additional groceries or lunch out.

    Count me in. I am not 100% certain what it will be used for but hope to use for an Alaska vacation.
    I will put into a saving account each time it hits either 100 or 200 and see how it goes.
    I just wrapped and counted and have a grand total right now of 225.00.

    Will put into saving account prior to end of the month. Need to decide what bank to use for this account first

    I will join this challenge again. I save all my change together in one of the count-as you-go jars. In late Nov or early Dec, I take it to the coin machine at the grocery store, and cash it in for a gift card to use towards holiday shopping. (There is no fee when you use the change to buy a gift card.)

    Jar currently stands at $9.13, and will update my signature throughout the year.

    Count me in. My change total from September /09 to Dec 2009 was $341.12
    I am just going to keep adding on to that and see how I do until Dec 2010.

    I'm in! I got one of those automatic coin counting jars for Christmas, so now I know exactly how much I have - $28.80 as of today. I will be updating the current balance in my signature. My goal is to save enough by end of the year to pay for Christmas gifts next year.

    I have started saving my change again this year. What I do is every two weeks I take my change and $10 from my check and put it in my #2 EF. I will keep a running tally of how much change I have save this year.

    I keep a change jar every year but I don't keep a running total. I feel like I'm less likely to spend it that way. Last year, I had $97.

    I'm in, but I don't know if I will count it monthly. I will save it as emergency money. :-)
