Lol, my husband is pretty much cash only; every day he empties his pants and tosses it. Every so often I empty out wallets and vehicles. At least once a week we sort it by coin type in individual jars. The jars are in our bedroom. We used to save change for specific things; brought our first Wii when they were released with change. Now we go from year to year and use it strictly for Christmas shopping.

We've made a game of it and try to beat each years amount the following year; we easily have over $150 in quarters already. I also wrap as I go along because it needs to be wrapped for our credit union to accept it. This way we pay no fees using coinstar or anything.

That is awesome!!!! Maybe I will give it a try for next year...

I love Shopkicks...I started using it last year...unfortunately, I only take advantage of the kicks for walking in certain stores because I usually don't have the time or energy to scan items for more kicks...my goal was to try to earn enough to get a $100 Walmart GC, but that is not happening w/o doing scans...

The scanning is time consuming and irritating if they don't even have the item.Unfortunatly I don't get a ton of walk in kicks but since I have been using Shopkick I have got $100 in Walmart cards it takes along time to accumulate enough.

Swagbucks is much better if you want to try it out send me a pm and I will send you a link
