I save all of our spare change for our Disney fund. If your bank requires you to roll your change to deposit it, here is another easier alternative.
I take it to my local CoinStar machine (they DO NOT charge a fee if you get a gift certificate and have at least $5 in change) and cash it in for a gift card. I then take cash out of our budget and put that into the Disney fund.
For example…. I might need to buy something at Lowe’s, so I take our spare change to a CoinStar machine and get a Lowe’s gift certificate. I use the gift certificate at Lowe’s and put that cash I was planning on spending into the Disney Fund.
Not all CoinStar machines offer the same gift certificates, so make sure you check your local machine online to see which gift cards they do offer.
