    My boyfriend does this too. He pays cash for everything too so it adds up pretty quick. I dont really do this myself because I use my bank card for almost everything. If I have cash in my pocket I tend to spend it faster.

    I do this too! It really does add up! I use my "pocket change" money to buy myself a reward every month for all the progress I have made in changing my lifestyle.

    I do this with the change, but also with money I have left over each month, or what's remaining from my budget (that I've saved in different ways) and then add that to my "fun" spending for vacation.

    I do this too. I try to save for at least 3 mos at a time. I use it for my "girl's" day out with my friend when we go shopping. I usually end up with $50.00, sometimes less sometimes more. The most I have cashed in is about $90.00. I Don't feel so guilty when I don't have to use too much from the checking account. You are right, it is amazing how quick it add up.

    I do this as well. Only problem is that I leave it in the bottom of purse, and when it just gets too heavy I cash it in. Usually I have about $20 -$25 in change. They always laugh at me at the bank.

    I do this all the time and when my piggy bank is full I sit watching TV and roll up the coins, then I take it to the bank and put it into my saving ACct which I don't use it is for emergencies and for my retirement.
