Not in a jar, most of my loose change goes into my car's change compartment. Sometimes I even put paper moneys worth $1 or $5.



Pennies go to my drink holder:

I have a small white board which we draw lines on to tally up the money. Each line is worth 10p, and goes towards whoevers section of the whiteboard it's on. You get a line essentially for doing chores e.g. Bringing a plate into the kitchen is 10p so 1 mark, cleaning the car is 50p so 5 marks etc. Me and my brother initially did it for our parents swearing, but our dad swears a lot, ended up with a ton of marks on the board, and claimed we were putting them on there behind his back to cheat him out of his money, so we essentially gave up after two days.

all my money is digital.

Hopefully in the future, human society will get rid of physical money--it's such a hassle. ain't got time to carry that shit... forgetting to take it out of pockets and they end up in washing machines.



I told my mum, to store all her money in the bank. it gives robbers less motivation to rob your house. seriously... don't understand people who keep stash of cash around their home. her reasoning being, "in case the banks go bankrupt" -__-;;;

You're identity can be stolen nowadays by just a swipe of a card.
They have these card reader, the size of a regular "beeper," that they can carry around anywhere. Then, they pretend to be your waiters or cashier clerks and accept your handed credit cards / debit cards.
The card reader they have can read what's the information behind the electronic strip of your card. You're name, address, account number, etc.

That's one method.


The second method is much more easier than winning a lottery number.
They have these software program that can pop up random 16 number digits like the ones you see on your credit/debit cards.
From there, they call a 1800 merchant number and install $1 or $3 of their own money to that 16 digit number account as a small transaction.
If the 1800 merchant number approved that transaction, that 16 number account is theirs for the taking.
They can use any gift cards that they can purchased on any retail stores, turn that to a normal, usable credit card, and emboss whatever names in that card. Basically, they stole someone's identity from there. They can use that account number for physical purchases and even digital purchases.

Another note: there's a program that can generate random codes that users can use to obtain CR's guest pass.

There are several ways to minimize the damage for these kinds of frauds, though.

One is to limit the amount of money your account can be debited per day.

Second is through making several accounts on the same account through internet banking. Transfer the majority of your money to the internetbanking account... so that fraudsters can't buy stuff from the money in that account.


Then there is insurance from the bank itself. They cover for any fraudulent activities that was not your fault... So I don't see any reason to fear these things...

Yep instead of a jar i have a big coffee can where i dump all my loose change. I cashed mine in about a year ago & came out with close to $450. Right its about 1/3 full so it might probably take another year and a half to reach the top.

Well, that looks convenient for you. But, in some way, someone is losing money either the bank itself or the company that received the purchase order of product/service or even the insurance from the bank itself.
Like what the second method I mentioned before, if they failed getting from you, they'll go somewhere else's money.
Not everyone knows what you just described. Your secretary probably doesn't know it. How about your janitors? Receptionists? Deli workers? Gardeners?
If the offender dabbles on multiple accounts, from different people, collectively, that's a huge loss.

It's convenient on your part. And, yours alone.

Not to mention, we don't know how many offenders out there. That includes that works within the law: crooked cops.

Well there are risks and benefits associated with both methods. Banks are generally more convenient and do provide good security (depending). Cash on the other and is always great because of its universal acceptability, i.e., dealing with people rather than businesses. Plus there is an anonymity in dealing with cash if you don't want your purchase history on record. Not everyone will have the required infrastructure to support debit transactions. Crime could be an issue either way though. But I kind of tend to agree with proper account security and a reputable banking institution you aren't likely to be victimized. That being said cash does have its place in our society and probably will for quite some time, but electronic transactions are generally the better way to go IMO.

I do not like to carry cash on me and really despise coins. So much so, that I refuse to use coins on the rare occasions that I do use cash.

All the coins that I receive end up in this old glass water cooler jar where it sits until the jar gets about half full. It would also appear that it currently holds currencies that did not get converted when I returned from my trips to other countries.
