Use Your Change! Why Not?

Posted: October 23, 2014 in Articles

IMG_0721At his work, my brother gets a lot of change from tips. A lot of people, if they get change back from their order, they’ll just put it in the tip jar and the workers will split the loot after the restaurant closes.

Dink, like a lot of other people, does not spend his change. He just saves it up and eventually asks our mom to trade for some bills. Once he had over $30 in change!

While Dink doesn’t really like using change, it’s money, and it adds up to a lot of money, too! If it just ends up it sitting in a bag that collects more and more change, then all that ends up being is wasted money.

Luckily, our mom gladly takes it and uses it a lot even though it makes her purse very heavy. When she goes to the grocery store and she has a lot of change from one of Dink’s trades, she goes through one of the self-check out lanes when the store isn’t busy and pays with coins alone.  Once it paid for the whole lot of groceries!

Change is just a slightly less convenient form of money. Yes, it’s heavy and takes some concentration to count it out haha, but it’s money and I don’t understand why people don’t use it. In fact, if people just used it in their every day transactions, they wouldn’t wind up with such huge collections of it.
