I actually have a piggy bank, and at the end of each day I drop whatever change I have into it. When it fills up, I take it to Coinstar and then I have some extra money to spend on something fun. Today I got almost $60 after Coinstar's fee. I also discovered that I shouldn't put half-dollars in the piggy because they are too big for the hole on the bottom. Fortunately with the aid of a pair of needlenose pliers, I was able to feed it back out the slot on top.
