10.10.2013 | 豬仔錢罌

[Volume 8 Issue 10, #1801]
你係唔係一個會帶散銀出街, 然後買嘢就會摷晒啲散銀出嚟嘅人?? 又或者你買嘢嘅時候會找一大堆散銀返嚟, 因為怕麻煩, 就全數擺喺屋企完全唔會再帶出街?? 我係屬於前者, 散銀都係錢, 點解要擺喺度唔用?? 擺喺度啲錢又唔會自己再生錢係唔係先?? 不過最近又好玩嘢喎, 開始將啲五角錢收起嚟擺入呢個玻璃罌.. 就好似以前細個嘅時候, 大家總係有一個豬仔錢罌, 每日都入幾個散銀入去咁.. 見到個錢罌慢慢咁滿, 其實都好有成就感嘅.. 尤其當你開始嘅時候就已經定下一個目標, 啲錢你要用嚟買呢樣買嗰樣, 我覺得可能會更加motivate自己儲錢囉.. 眼見呢個玻璃罌已經大概有五分之一滿, 我又有個衝動要儘快裝滿佢喎, 哈哈.. 大家不如估下裝滿晒五角錢之後, 呢一罌錢總共會有幾多呢?? $.$
are you someone who brings coins with you, and when you are buying something you dig them out to give exact change?? or are you someone who brings back all the coins home, because you think they are troublesome, you just keep them at home forever?? i am of the former type, coins are still money, why just leave them aside unused?? they won't grow extra money if you just leave them in the drawer right?? but lately i kind of play around, i started to collect my 50-sen coins and put them all into this glass container.. just like when we were kids, we used to have one piggy bank where we slot in a few coins everyday.. when we see the piggy bank is slowly getting full, we feel very contented.. especially if we have already set a goal for ourselves when we started saving the coins, we'll use the money to buy this and that, i guess this way were are even more motivated to save money.. looking at this container of mine which is about one-fifth full, i am now more determined to fill it up as soon as possible, haha.. guess when this glass container is filled up with 50-sen coins, how much money will i have then?? $.$

    1. That's a very good habit! As for me, I simply put them everywhere. I don't actually keep them. My boss used to keep them in his piggy bank and he finally had to break it!

      Btw, we hardly get coins from the bank. Good thing, they don't charge us extra. But the other guy from MBI will charge us extra.

    5. usually banks will charge la coz they have to pay for the security transport from Bank Negara to the branch.

  4. They say the worth of the metal used in making the coins is more than its value so people will collect and sell to the scrap metal collector. That is why they've stopped those RM1 coins.

  5. I'm not in the habit of stashing away loose change simply because I find it a hassle having to change them into notes when the jar is filled but lately, I've started to collect the new 20 and 50 sen coins - just for that 'gold' effect, them being so new and all.

  6. Oh gosh, my manners! Good morning SK, everyone!

    No wonder we can hardly find 50-sen coins in circulation. They are all in piggy-banks! I know a few others who also just collect them 50-sen coins.

    1. Oh, I am like you too! I'll bring coins with me, in fact I'll 'stock up' coins in my purse time to time, hehe~ It's more convenient and I don't mind the 'weight' la! Sometimes if we bought something ends with few cents, we can give the sales person exact amount ma! Imagine buying things with RM 10.10, it's better to give that 10 cent rather to have the sales person to give 90 cents in exchange right?

      Delete
    2. My hubby is totally opposite with me, he will bring back all the coins and put inside a container which I've prepare, haha xD
      So like every 2-3 weeks I'll count those coins and go exchange with the newspaper man/grocery tauke, like that I can 'earn' some money liao, hahaha xD
      No point keeping those coins la~

      Delete
    3. And you know whenever we go overseas surely we'll bring back some coins too right? So I'll just keep them nicely and when I go travel again next time, I'll bring a coin purse along, will try to use those coins first instead of notes....

      Delete
    4. I will make sure I use up all or if not, almost all of my coins at the airport before coming back after the trip.

      Usually only bring back like a few cents max home.

      There's a lot of cheap stuff we can buy and maybe as last minute souvenir buying with all those loose change. :P

    5. Hayley...same over here la....i would use the coins but husband will bring back the coins and it be all over the table under the table whatever

      Hmmm actually hor...if let say lazy to buy gifts from overseas for friends can family, actually can use those coins and give to them. But of course la must frame up nicely or put in a creative box. Am sure ah Boy will have a lot of idea one how to make . He is very creative

      Delete
    6. Put coins in a box or frame is a great idea Meow!

      Much better and more classy than just"dump" the coins to them. :-)

  21. Morning SK. Was missing in action yesterday because my son was having a fever, so I stayed at home to takecare him. Became a 1-day stay-at-home-mum, maid+slave. Haha..

  22. I don't collect coins, but I use them everyday. I try to. I don't keep and store them at home, but I will keep them in my coin wallet. Will try to use/empty the wallet as much as possible, on a daily basis.

    But the hubs, is different from me. He doesn't empty up his coins everyday, and he brings them back. Bring them back nevermind, he never put into his wallet again to use the next day. You know what? He always leaves the coins in his pants/pockets, then straightaway throw into the washing machine (without checking).. Then when the washing machine is running, I can hear "kiling kalang kiling kalang".. I have mild OCD and I am crazy right, each time that happens, I feel like stopping the machine and dig the coins out! Really behtahan.

    And sometimes, when I am hanging the clothes, the coins will drop out from his pants/pockets onto the floor with a LOUD "kling kling"... OMG, I feel like strangling him already.. Yes, again, crazy's my name.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Did I just said the word "strangle? OMG... Really.. After umpteenth times of nagging from me, he still throw his pants into the washing machine with the coins still inside, and when I hang the clothes, all the coins will drop on the floor. Gawd, I hate that "kling" sound.

    Sometimes I will behtahan him to the extent I immediately switch on the vacumn cleaner, and vacumn up the coins, in front of him!

    1. Wakakakaka What a garang wife to suck up with vacuum cleaner! My wife would take them out for me nicely with a smile but anyway that never happened cos I had this habit since small to remove the coins.

      Maybe you should check all his pockets before washing so that it won't stress you at all. Remember to control the situation instead of let the situation control you.

      Delete
    2. Hi TM, hmm, yes, I agree.. I always let the situation control me..Yeah wor, I purposely switch on the vacumn and suck up the coins lagi, hahaha..Hmm, dunno now the vacumn dust bag got how much money liao, kekekeke...

  24. I always had spare changes and kept them for many years. I would store in all money boxes, tins and antique bowls until full. The whole total exceeded over one thousand ringgit which included some expired One Ringgit coins!! kanasai I wasted them.

    After that incident I took many bundles of coins to my regular coffee shops to change. The taukehs loved my coins so much that they wanted to kiss me! I didn't know that most of them found it almost impossible to get loose coins often from the banks.

  31. Hubby and I have a habit to keep those coins in our fat piggy bank! Whenever my coin pouch weight heavier I'll transfer to the piggy bank at home. No matter it is 50cents, 20cents or 10cents and even 5cents too. It is still money then....

    1. Last couple of months we just transferred all those coins out. Counted and separated in different bags - 50cents, 20cents and 10cents. Then labelled the amount of those coins...Then before we bank in into our kids account, I exchanged those coins with my friend's neighbor. He sells wan tan mee in the hawker center - definitely needs lot of coins during his business. So, once changed and I'll get my hubby to bank in into my kids account. We save it for their future use.

    2. My fat piggy bank - can keep lots of money in it. It takes 2 years - to get the piggy full with coins. We just keep coins and never bother it until...it is very heavy to be lifted...Phew! takes 2 nights to count the coins leh...hard earn money....Imagine how much we have collected that last time? RM360...alot leh.

      What if is RM9.70, I'll say Uncle try to top up until it become RM10. Easy right?

      But I can't do that at Tesco or shopping mall lor.. Then will have to use those coins.

    5. For other countries coins, usually hubby and I will combine both of us coins and see how much we can get. Usually we do that on the last night of our holidays. Later when we wanna get souvenirs, snacks and bought lil gifts back we try to use it up as much as possible. Cos those coins aren't value anymore and not accepted by the money changer.

      Delete
    6. I still remember, hubby and I during our last minute shopping at Tokyo Disneyland...lots of coins we have that time! Went to the gift shops - searching for all sorts of key chains and we bought back home. Variety of them. At one point you may think key chains, waste of money! But what we can do with those coins if bring back to Msia? At least we have some souvenirs back home and until now we still keep it. *_^

  33. I will use all the coins too. I will also keep some of the coins at home, because I will give my two girls some coins every night to put into their coin bank.
