I don’t like coins…
€2, €1 and the VERY odd 50c are all i’d ever use in shops. The rest, i throw into my coin sorter and store away in money bags. It got to the stage where my locker was literally full of coins and the coin sorter was jamming because it couldn’t handle any more coins 🙂
So today, i tok everything to the bank and cashed them in for crisp, new notes.
Total amount: €172 😀
I do this every few months, but i don’t think i’ve ever gathered that much before. It’s a great way of saving because i forget about it and it doesn’t become money in my eyes, until it becomes notes, so when i get handed €172, it comes as a big surprise 🙂
