Living Solo: Spare Change All Over the Place

from the Bachelor Living notes of Renzie Baluyut.

If you’ve been living on your own for a while, you’ve probably developed this knack of keeping all your spare change in a little container- or in my case, several.

Youll be surprised how much cash you have just lying around the house.

It’s almost like clockwork: everytime I come home, I empty my pockets of pretty much everything in it- keys, my wallet, loose bills, handkerchiefs, receipts, etc.  And yes, all the spare change as well.

Not before long, you’d actually end up with a whole lot of spare change- if you gather them all up, you’ll be surprised you actually have a lot of cash lying around the house.

It helps to gather all that spare change in small trays.  And if you have enough, it might actually be worth sorting them out according to denominations, then arranging them in little bags (I used ziplock sandwich bags), then taking all those coins to the bank for depositing.

After spending an entire afternoon sorting and bagging, it turns out that I have several hundred pesos worth of change just lying around- that’s enough cash to get laundry done and do some groceries, with maybe enough left over for a quick snack at KFC or some place.

Sort out your spare change according to denomination. Bag and tag them to get them ready for depositing or spending.

  2. 5 and 10 are great for the tricycle and whistle blowers but not much else.
    I hate all the spare 25 centavo I have collected.
    I was wondering if you do not have a bank account, will a bank still take your coins in and give you notes?
