    I've noticed over the years that people don't really look at pennies like they should. I mean, seriously, they're the most "lost" coin out of the bunch! Quarter = big, shiny coin that gets you lots without having to break change Dime = helps out the nickle when you're out of quarters and is...

    My g/f and I are contemplating taking our coinage and opening a joint account. The idea would be that we could deposit a certain amount (say $25 each a month -- I can do more now because I'm working) to go towards savings for emergency but potentially a house. It's not much but a starting point...

    Dh was at our local credit union the other day and while waiting a lady wanted to buy some rolled quarters. The bank teller told her that they are starting to charge a fee for buying change now but would not charge her this time as it was just starting. I remember taking some coin to the...

    I thought It would be fun to share this story that dh shared with me this week. On Monday a guy at his job brought in a soft carry on type bag full of coins. It weighed 150lbs. He brought it in because he was going to go to the bank with "The Boss" because his bank has a coin counter. Tuesday...

    This is great. I'm not tempted to just stick it in the account to cover some expense. I cashed it in, and immediately bought a savings bond for one of the kids! I had $40 after I cashed it in.

    it takes me back seeing the amounts of loose change you are finding. Here in the great Commonwaelth of Australia we did away with 1 and 2 cent coins years ago - 5 cents is our smallest denomination now. We don't have $1 and $2 dollar notes anymore - they were replaced by gold coins so when you...
