I have several change jars. My husband has one for his spending on his dresser. He uses a beer growler. In July, we emptied his growler and counted out the change. The total was surprising…Nearly $200! He deposited in savings. I have a small jar and I separate the silver change from the pennies. We also keep a piggy bank in the laundry room and whatever change we find, we put it in the bank. I also have an Altoids tin that I keep in the car and sometimes change I find I put in there. I recently gave a homeless person my entire Altoids tin containing change (I think I had about 3.00). I like keeping those tins with change in them in case I can help someone. Finally I have a small jar that I keep at the office. I rarely carry cash but when I do, I sometimes buy lunch and deposit the change in my small jar. The amount on my side bar is from my dresser. I will take some time to count what I have in the laundry room and at the office and make a combined total. I would consolidate but for some reason, I find comfort in having a little stash of pocket change near me.
I forgot to mention about side gig from Friday. I have a hurt foot and my side gig requires I climb a ladder to check smoke detectors. I wasn’t confident in doing that with my foot so I asked DS1 take over the inspection and I will drive. We agreed to split it 35/15 in his favor since he completed the entire inspection and I just drove. So my earnings were 15.00 instead of 50 but that’s ok. In a future post I will tell you about my side business since it is a long story.
