Where to find loose change in the house
(Stupid moment: This hub is written in answer to a request asking "Where's the best place to find change in the house?" And I was initally trying to think of what changes in a house that could be written about in a hub...sigh.)
I am the kind of person who likes to keep the change she finds on the ground... even the pennies (especially the ones right-side up, or heads-side up, for good luck). This means I have change all over the place.
Usually I like to throw that change in my purse. There's probably enough coins to cover the bottom of it.
I was moving furniture to move back to my apartment today and discovered I had left some change from my pockets on top of some of that furniture (and around it as well). I was too lazy to put it in my wallet or my money-cup.
My money-cup is like a piggy bank, except easier to access (as it has no top to hinder me). There was plenty of change in the cup and around it, including the floor.
The floor in my room, for some reason, has random pennies and dimes all over it. Go figure.
My mom keeps change on the windowsill in the kitchen, which falls to the counter. There is also change on her bathroom counter. That's just where she puts it. Similarly my brother keeps his money dish on the bathroom counter, like you remember to take the change out of your pockets before you take a shower or something. Hm.
Of course there's change in the washing machine and dryer. That's without question. But I'm too lazy to look and retrieve.
There's so much change in my car! It's all from drive-thrus and it goes right to parking meters.
Besides these locations, my change is in my wallet. Sometimes I roll up my loose change and keep it in a safe location for when I deposit money in the bank. Basically my family keeps change in places we are around every day but still somehow are neglected. Interesting.
Maybe you just have some stash with change up the hizzo. If so then yay for you! :)
