for change, get a piggy bank
every time I empty it (around 6 months), I have a good 1,000$ worth of change (in Canada, 2$ are in change format)
and if you put the change into a piggy bank, that also cuts from your weekly 500$, and helps you save more
it sounds stupid to have a piggy bank, I even had one guy laugh at me for coming into a bank with a piggy bank.. well, end of the day, I was driving a sexy ass 2012 Carrera 4 GTS (thanks to that piggy bank) while he was in his shitbox!
