Sort Spare Change For Exact Change

What to do with all that unwanted change in coins? You don't want to ever count it. I keep 4 plastic containers in my kitchen drawer now (for quarters, dimes, nickels and pennies). I tell my family to sort their coins on regular basis.


When the containers fill up, I fill and label old prescription vials ("Q","D","N" and "P") with each coin group and store them in an old make-up bag in the glove compartment in my car. Then I pay with exact change through every drive-through (i.e. fast food, cleaners, gas, tolls, parking, etc). My unwanted coins are gone in no time. The store clerks always thank me because they always need more change.

I totally agree. Spend that change and save dollar bills. No counting, no excess weight. I keep mine in the car too.
