Do you save up your change or use it right away?

We used to save it up and then cash it in at coinstar, but now we rarely use cash and stick to our debit/credit card because of the rewards.

For the most part we use our debit/credit card, too. Sometimes, we'll pull cash out though, and save the change to take to the bank later.

I never use cash, so I don't. DH does though and saves his change. He uses it to buy soda and cashes it in when the jar gets full.

We rarely have change. On the off-chance we do, it always goes into Alayna's piggy bank for good behavior.

We save it in a digital coin jar, and occasionally coinstar it or roll the quarters for the bank, ect. We tend to not cash in the change unless we REALLY need money, so we usually are close to $100 when the time comes.

We only use cash for our grocery budget, so usually I just re-use it to make exact change the next time I'm at the cashier, or to pick up a Sunday paper.
Thanks to Kiliki for my super cute siggy!

I use mine for snacks at school sometimes, but mostly I pay my 9 year old with it. He gets paid for extra chores, like mating socks or shoveling snow

I usually save my pennies and roll them..I know it is just pennies but I figure they add up. DH saves all the "silver change" in a jar that never gets touched for anything. It is like his savings account
