Anyone besides me save their coins for a while, wait until they get a lot, cash them in, and then go splurge on something?

About how much change do you have? What's the most you ever had just in coins?

Right now I would say I have about $100. Taken me about a year, or so, to accumulate this much. I hate paying with cash.

A coupletree hundred I would guess!

About $ 40 right now.

I don't know......

I'm going to have the bank count it.

I will guess $1800.

It is a 5 gal jug that weighs over 75lbs and is over 1/2 full.

Great idea. I think I am going to start using a 5 gallon bucket as my new piggy bank and wait until it's full to cash her in. Probably going to take a long while.

Almost none. I spend it as I get it.

I have a 50 call ammo can that is overflowing. Estimated at about 800 bucks.

I have a huge Moosehead beer bottle. I get her about 1/2 full of change and then use it on vacation. It usually gets to about 200 bucks or so. Right now I'm guessing 125 or so.

I keep a beef jerky ( NOT FROM A GUN SHOW), container between the seats, When full about 125 bux.
weight around 25 or so pounds (including screws, nuts, washers, and anything that bothers me in my pockets).

I need to get a bigger one that weighs 800 bux worth

I have about $100.00 in change right now

At least $500-$600 in a quarter slot machine I have.
Link Posted: 2/3/2006 11:18:17 PM EDT
Maybe I should cheat and get some rolls of quarters from the bank
Link Posted: 2/3/2006 11:22:46 PM EDT
I have a sparklets waterbottle full of silver, and one full of penny's

I would guess a couple thousand.

Had a contest a while back on guessing the amount, was interesting archive.ar15.com/forums/topic.html?b=1&f=5&t=409405

If it's plastic your ok. I had the same thing but it was a glass one.

It was about half full of coins and as I was sitting near by it exploded.

It couldn't take the pressure of the coins pushing outward. Glass and money

in a pile on the floor!!

Now I use a wooden tub and the ashtray in my truck.

I’ve got 38 cents on my desk and 22 cents on my nightstand. Any other change I just don’t have.

Aimless, did you know that Commerce Bank will Coinstar it for you for free? i.e., no 10% fee.

$300.02, but I'm just guessing.

I cashed in 3.5 64oz Gatorade jugs full of silver only and it came to like $800.00. I used it for vacation last year.

I spend all my change in vending machines.
