Did any of you ever have/still have a jar or something where you toss loose change in? I remember my family having one for a while when i was younger.... that idea didn't last very long at all.

I don't have anything, although my brother-in-law has a three foot tall, one foot wide jar filled with quarters.

### Dawguard

Yup. He's got enough change to last out every apocolypse Hollywood has ever made a movie of.

Would you actually want to pick up and move that jar? :surprised Maybe you can convince Cyrus to try, and then laugh as his back breaks from the effort.

I used to throw my change into a cake pan, but that was when I was single. If I did that now, my wife would just take it!

Here in Canada, with our loonies and toonies, change adds up quicky. A couple of days ago, I reached into my pocket and pulled out a handful of change that summed to over $20. Regards, George 9.

With him around, there is not spare change! There are no loose bills either. 10. May 5, 2006 ### Dawguard How large are your pockets, and just how much did that weigh? I don't think I could fit twenty dollars in change in my pockets. 11. May 5, 2006 ### Danger Dawguard, Loonies and Twoonies are, respectively, one and two dollar coins. We don't have smaller paper money than 5's, and there's a$5 coin in the works. I was quite delighted to pay my bar tab with pocket change a couple of weeks ago, and I'm a heavy drinker. It was about $45. 12. May 5, 2006 ### heartless I have one myself, my grandma has one for me, my parents have one for me, and my uncle also has one for me :D There's usually about$27 in each, before I go to a bank. Once I brought all of them together and there was more than a 100$it was pretty heavy. Now I decided to keep up 'til I collect$500.

Tell'em that some fellow from PF accepts donations of any kind. I'd be glad to have a jar.

Just standard 501 jeans.

$20 = 7 toonies + 6 loonies, which is only 13 (somewhat large) coins. Edit: I see Danger beat me to it. I still sometimes pay pizza delivery guys with change, which they certainly don't mind.

No, it would not. Paper money is better.

Of course any opinion on this is subjective, but I know from where you're coming. Before loonies came out, I was quite vocal in opposition, but now I quite like loonies and toomies.

I hate your looney-tunes. I had a pocket full of change because you guys don't have $1 bills, im sorry, its stupid. You end up with pockets full of metal change, and I can't stand that. 19. May 5, 2006 ### Pengwuino Actually yah come to think of it, having a bunch of$1 coins in my pocket would be annoying since i ALWAYS have some \$1s on me (shut up), but only have change on me when i know im going to need it.
