    The Smoosh Bottle........... 17th Jan 17 at 9:40 AM
    Anyone else have one of these at home for all the loose change or smoosh as we call it?

    We had quite a bit in various different tins & jars so I picked up one of those huge plastic coke bottle banks & the aim is to keep adding the smoosh from our purse & wallet until its full to the brim.

    I'm gonna start getting some money bags stocked up from the bank in preparation of cashing it in(bit premature I know but I like to plan ahead ).

    Our aim for the smoosh is..........well we don't actually have one Will wait until we cash it in then decide what to use it for.

    Got a few £'s of smoosh in my coin purse.

    Once that's full I will count it & transfer it into the smoosh bottles.

    82p in Smoosh bottle.

    I gave a pound to a homeless man and his dog sitting on the floor. He laughed and gave it back as he was waiting for the bus. It's still in my coat pocket. lol.

    My postbox money box is full now. I can use the other ones. I have quite a few. All empty.

    Oh good for you managing to fill your postbox money box.

    Mine still feels like it has ages to go!

    Put in about £0.40 yesterday, probably won't have anything else now till next week.

    My smoosh bottle is huge so will take me years to fill that I think.
