According to the U.S. Treasury, we have $15 billion in loose change in our purses, pockets, homes, cars and other places where it is gathering dust!
So, as part of your savings plan, you should round up all of your loose change and put it into your savings account. Get in the habit of putting your loose change in a jar every night until it is full. Then, clear out the jar by depositing the coins in your savings account.
You’ll be surprised how quickly your coins will add up to “real money” and, instead of dust, you’ll be earning some interest on your change.
