I also have a tin that I throw my pennies into. It gets filled up about once a year and holds almost $100.00. I usually deposit it into ds' saving account along with all his birthday money. I'm sure he'll appreciate it when he gets his first place and needs the cash for furniture, clothes etc.
I have a huge piggy bank that sits in my living room on the floor. His name is Preston (pig) and he is about the size of a pot bellied pig. We "feed" him all our change. He's very well behavedm, has never had an accident on the floor and has a sweet temperment! Plus, my niece likes to "ride" him and our cat Skeeter lounges on top of him. He's the perfect pet!
I use a bowl with a lid for all my change. I took it to the bank today and got $36.91. I took the 91 cents and put it back into the bowl, added $4 to the $36 to make $40 and hid that. I'm going to do this for the rest of the year and see how much money I can save up.
