Just a little bit of frugality today…..After all, it is Frugal Friday!
We all have loose change lying around and sometimes we can be a bit lazy with cashing it in. I think, a few years ago, Michael and I never paid attention to loose change, and would toss it in an empty popcorn tin, you know the one you always get at Christmas time? Well, that popcorn tin turned into several hundred dollars that we had, just sitting there, and when you have 2 kids in diapers, finding an extra several hundred dollars is like winning the lottery.
So, check under your couch, in your car, and and anywhere you throw your change, and turn that change into money you can use!
Our preferred method at the moment is Coinstar, because our bank does not have an alternative, and rolling change is not my cup of tea. You, yourself, can certainly roll up your change the old fashioned way or check and see if your bank has a machine like Coinstar. That way, you will not be charged a small fee like the one Coinstar charges.
coinstarThe Coinstar machine is at the local supermarket where I shop, and usually, I use it twice a month. I opt for the cash and use it right there in the supermarket, and it takes about $16 off of my grocery bill for the month. It’s something, and actually, Coinstar allows you to cash in your change for gift certificates to such places like Amazon and Starbucks, if you feel like splurging on something for yourself. And, I have been tempted, because there is a Starbucks right inside the supermarket where I shop…..but, I think of diapers and wipes and all of that other fun stuff…… 🙂
And that is all of the frugal advice I have for today. Go and check out the Coinstar website, if you want more info, cause I have a baby crawling on me right now and can’t write anymore!
