I have loose change that I empty out each day on my dresser. The change always seems to get in the way when I need to use the dresser to write on paper. I'd like to find a way to organize the change so it doesn't take up as much dresser space. I know I could purchase a piggy bank, but I don't want to spend any money on this. I've tried putting the change in a drawer, but then it gets all over and in my way when I put clothes in and back out of the drawer. I've also tried putting them in a plastic bag, but I really hate that option since it is really tacky, and I need to open and close the bag each time I have more coins to put in.
It doesn't matter if all the coins are mixed in some makeshift container together or if there's some makeshift contraption that organizes the denominations of the coins as well. Either one will work for me.
