Pennies or peanuts

Wade always saved his change. At the end of the day he would throw it all in a dish and the pennies went into peanut jars. The quarters, nickels, and dimes he would roll and use but the pennies just kept collecting.
Now, considering my current financial situation, I kind of look at these jars as pennies from heaven.

I sat down and rolled pennies the other day. I only got one jar done. Any guesses on how many pennies were in one jar? I'll give the dollar amount after the picture.


I rolled $12.00 and there was maybe another 20 or 30 pennies that I threw in one of the other jars.

    1. I never was very good at saving the change. I would do it for a while and then I would just start spending it instead of breaking a dollar.

  3. As they say, every penny helps. I save my change the same way.

    1. That it does. What is the old saying? "A penny saved is a penny earned"

  4. wow, I guessed 5 dollars. that is amazing. found money,, woo hooo.. I see people throw pennies down on the ground, they don't keep them. we save them and have several jars. I once rolled 179 dollars in change and went to a local store and asked is she would take them for the trundle bed, she said its all money to me and took them. I cheat now and dump mine in the Walmart thing instead of rolling

  5. It's a guy thing because they have to carry their money, coins and paper, in their pockets, so they dump the change at the end of the day. I can't remember what G used to dump his change in before I got him a personalized piggy bank! He doesn't separate the pennies from the rest of the change, it all goes into the piggy. We used to take the whole piggy to the bank and dump it into the change counting machine, nowadays we dump the change into a bag and use the change counting machine at the grocery store - sure, we lose some money that way but we don't have a local bank anymore, which is a total PITA.

    1. Yep, I think you're right about it being a guy thing. I think the reason Wade kept the pennies seperate was because he would spend the change when he was short on cash and needed cigarettes and it took too many rolls of pennies to have enough to buy a pack.

  6. It's pretty amazing what you can save buy doing that. Mark has this huge 3 foot high beer bottle. It was something from a display in a bar back in the day. He throws all of his change in there.

  7. Well that was worth counting all those pennies. Well done. I have a whole bunch of pennies, guess I should count them. You have a good week end.

  8. Why are you spending time rolling them? Just bag 'em and bring them to the bank to deposit them! We have a small change jar and when it gets full, off to the bank it goes. Why let it sit when you can use it?!

    1. Because I'm cheap. My bank wants them rolled before you turn them in. I could take them to walmart and dump them in their machine but I don't want to pay them to count them...lol
