Where Does All That Loose Change Come From?

How many times have you washed laundry, cleaned under the cushions, or vacuumed only to find loose change?  Where does it come from?  Why don't we miss it when we lose it?  I watched an episode of Clean House (I know, but I can't help it) and when they cleared out the house they found over $6,000 in cash and loose change. I don't know about you, but I don't have that kind of money to forget about.  My oldest son finally moved out and while packing his boxes, again, money and change started falling out of drawers, and clothes.  We found more under the bed, and in the closet.  There was enough for at least a month worth of groceries.........yes I did.....He voluntarily contributed back to his 21 years of non-stop eating. 
We May Need a Bigger Jar

Money is still popping up around the house, so I have figured out what I am going to do starting today July 30, 2010 and ending July 30, 2011.  Every coin I find laying around the house is going to go into the "Da Cha Ching" Jar.  On July 30, 2011, I plan on counting the money I have collected and then I am going to match that amount and give it to a charity of our choice. 


I will update often to let you know how much we are collecting. This will be posted on the Cha Ching page.
So far as of today $ 37.04.

I am so glad I am not the only one! Between Clean House and Hoarders I am hooked. Makes me not feel so bad when my house is a little messy.

That is a super idea. Truthfully I wish I could find about $6,000 laying around the house, but I do find at least .25 - .50 cents a day. Maybe I should start a jar and see how much we can gather.

I figure maybe at least $100 in a year could be possible. We will have to see by Next July 30th. At least it is making us more aware of it laying around. My sixteen year old brought me some he found in his room yesterday.
