      Hi

      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.

      Vicki

      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.
