Some people like to spend their change so that it doesn’t accumulate while others like to collect it and be surprised by the total after a year or a few. Years ago, I saved all my change for a couple of years and when I rolled it, I had $500!
Whether you spend it or save it, keep your change together. Don’t toss some in a decorative dish along with your keys and throw other coins in a junk drawer.
It may take some trial and error to find a container and location that works for you. If you find that your coins aren’t going into their designated location, ask, “what’s the problem?” and figure out why you aren’t carrying out this task.
That little question, “What’s the problem?” is a great question to ask when something isn’t working the way you want it to.
