I have started doing this as well, to save for a trip to Florida in
the fall of 2007. I picked up a couple of banks at the Dollar store
for this purpose. The banks are tin, and can’t be opened without
destroying the bank. I live in Northern Ontario, Canada. Our change
includes the $1.00 and $2.00 coins. Our change can add up very
quickly. I can’t wait until the fall to see how much we have saved.
If the trip falls thru for some reason, we can always take a trip
within driving distance and still have a lot of fun.

> I have a frugal savings idea I want to share with the rest of
you, in case none of you have thought about doing the same. When I
did this and took it to the bank I was totally surprised of the
amount I had saved up. I keep a container where I everytime I have
changes leftovers from buying stuff etc emtying it into this
container, it got full and I took it to the bank, and I actually had
$107 saved up in changes, the teller in the bank told us lots of
people does that, and use it towards vacation, or you can treat the
family for something nice, that you usually wouldnt do, or use it
towards the kids college.
