  • I LOVE using pennies in our fast food restaurants and convenience stores where our younger generation are more likely to work. When I use the correct pennies it is so much fun watching those that have not learned to count money.

  • When we use cash we give the cashier paper money and save the returned change for our main yearly vacation. Since w edon't use it for our smaller trips we generally have between $800 and $1100 per year.

    hahaha.,,,I give them a $5 and my purchase is $4.97 if they didn't punch my $5 in the register they COULD NOT give me the right change..But I LOVE IT when my purchase is $4.25 and I give them $5.25. They think I misunderstood them instead of just giving me my $1. OR the dishonest ones who don't even acknowledge and thinks I misundestood them and try to keep my $1. hahahaha

  • I keep my pennies in a big jar until I have quite a few. I then take them to Kroger and cash them in at the Coinstar machine and have a little extra grocery money.
