Re: How much change can you save?

I knew a man years ago who only paid for items with bills. In fact, he not only saved change, but his $1 bills and $5 bills too. I realize that not everyone can afford to do this, but he did and when he counted his "change jar" (he filled a 5 gallon water bottle) at the end of the year he had almost $10,000!! Amazing!

We have a change coffee can that is full. My DH just counted it last week and there was over $200 in there. I have a few dollars sitting on top of my dryer and was JUST going to make a jar for that. How weird that I saw this thread!
