How to use up lots of small change?
My DH has the annoying habit of using cash for small purchases and then dropping all the change (quarters, pennys, dimes etc) into a box in the home. He will not carry change with him to spend and uses a fresh new $20 bill for the next purchase.
I cleaned out the closet in his study over the weekend and found 2 shoe boxes full of change from the past 3 years. I am not sure how to process them. I guess I could separate the quarters out. How about the mountain of pennys and nickels? Is there an automated way to sort them? Will the bank take a whole container full of them? And what do you guys do with the change that collects at your home? How to manage small change? Any creative ideas? Thanks for your tips in advance.
