Some people like collecting spare change and cashing it in once a year as “found” money to have some fun with. Others prefer to spend the change as they receive it, so it doesn’t accumulate.
Create a spot for collecting loose coins, depending on how you want to use it (a small dish if you’ll grab it to use it or a larger container if you’ll collect it for a while).
One thing to avoid is allowing coins to get scattered here and there throughout your home because it isn’t clear where it belongs. So, some coins end up on the bedroom dresser, some end up at the bottom of your purse, and a few coins get mixed in with office supplies.
Knowing where coins belong helps create the habit of collecting them in one space.
