Go through the house and collect together any loose change that you find – start a loose change jar in the kitchen – it soon adds up!
My Tips and Advice:
Loose change seems to be breeding – whether its a penny in your jeans pocket, a twenty pence in the bottom of your handbag, or even a whole pound under the cushion on the sofa – coins just fall out and get forgotten.
Its great to walk around the house and collect any stray coins along the way – and I always collect it when I am sorting out drawers and cupboards.
My hubby also empties his pockets each day when he walks in from work, as the last thing he wants is loose coins, so we have a pot in the kitchen that houses loose change.
This has a couple of great side effects:-
1. When you need some change for something (school collection, car park fees etc…), its there!
2. When you fill the jar, you’ll be amazed at how much you have collected together, and you can then treat yourselves to something you may otherwise not have had – or why not give to charity.
EXTRA TASK – If you are out for a walk, keep your eyes peeled for the odd stray coin – you never know how much you will find!
