    In my family we put all the picked up cash in a can for a year and gave it to a charity

    When my BIL was doing a long-standing substitute teaching job, the high school kids would throw their excess change (even as much as 75 cents) on the floor instead of in their pockets. They would then tease my BIL who would pick up every last penny and put it in his pocket. In a few months he started telling them that he had already earned over $30 from them and they can tease him all the want. They immediately stopped and started looking for change themselves.

    I have found 3 dollars, 20.00 and loads of quarters, nickels, and dimes, so it is worth looking down!

    My mother used to say "If you non't think there is worth in a penny then you are not worth the dollar that's made up of pennies."

    My son saved a bundle doing this as a child. He hoarded his treasure and bought something good when he'd save up enough. He saw all kinds of change I never saw!

    I clear out my husband's and my pockets every day and put all the change from the day except for quarters in a bank. They add up too.

    I walk a nearby park and I take a small bag and pick up trash along the way, not only is the bending extra exercise but you clean the environment as well. That and any coins I find are my bonus! ;)
