Every year before the holidays I cash in my jar(s) of change. Anything that ends up in the couch cushions, car cup holder or washing machine goes in a jar until its time to go Christmas shopping. I usually save over $100 with this method that has become a tradition.
By breaking a bill to pay for an item, allows me to save coins and green dollars, at least $500.00 in coins and $1500 to $1700 hundred in ones.
The benefits of this coins and dollars saving tip has allowed me to finish all my christmas shopping the day after Thanksgiving without going in debt with my credit card. The only thing you need to make this successful is to find any kind of container that you can store money in.
