“Keep the change” jar

An original way to save loose coins

When your purse is overflowing with loose change and it won’t even close any more, it’s definitely time to get spending those coins as soon as you can. Alternatively, why not save them somewhere? Take this adorable DIY money jar, for example: you can hang it on the wall, and it makes saving twice as fun! If you hang it in a prominent place, it’s easy to keep topping it up with small change, and you’ll be amazed at how quickly it mounts up! Our mason jar change holder is mounted on a piece of chipboard which we painted black and then decorated using an edding paint marker to create a really eye-catching effect.
