As the treasurer for a small community group, I often have to carry heavy bags of coins to the bank. To lighten my load, I take the coins to my workplace - a pizza store - and exchange them for notes. My banking becomes easier, and the store gets some much-needed spare change (which is something it often runs low on, as people usually pay with notes, not coins). This solution would also work well with small corner stores and garage sales - any place that needs coins but doesn't necessarily have a high turnover.

Excellent thinking - and thanks for being honest when it comes to exchanging those coins. I suppose a less honest person would be tempted to slip a few notes or coins into their own pocket rather than exchange fairly for the benefit of their employer. You get my vote!
