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 :p).

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

    So we cleared all the £0.01's, £0.02's, £0.05's £0.10's £0.20's into the jar & it's covered the bottom - just!

    I keep the £0.50's £1.00's £ £2.00's in separate banks.

    This is gonna take a while I think!

    I have a money box and I am throwing all loose change in so far this year. One day I am gonna be rich.

    Problem is when I am broke I raid it occasionally - maybe that's why I am not rich. I promise I will not raid it this year!

    I did the same when it was in the tins last year, hoping to not raid it at all this year too.

    We have a 3 litre whisky bottle which we put 1ps and 2ps into and a Scooby Doo money box that we put 5ps 10ps and 20ps in. The latter was full recently and when we counted it up there was over £40 in it.
