I bought this jar several years ago at a discount store. This jar stays in my bedroom on my bookcase. I keep in it change that I take out of my pocket. Every now and then when I find a couple of loose one dollar bills I through them in there too! It's my "in a pinch" money. You know the kind of money when you need to send your child to school with field trip money and all you have are $20's in your wallet.
This jar reminds me of when my sisters and I were young. My sister Cindy made a clay container shaped like a die with the top open. My mother used to keep loose change in it for lunch money. We would just take what we needed. Remember when lunch only cost 25 cents in school?
Do you keep spare change in anything for "just in case"?
