Over at AskMetafilter, a user wants to know what to do with all his pennies.
I have a lot of pennies. They accumulated over the past twelve years. I need a permanent solution to this problem other than a big jar. What do you do with your pennies?
My favorite answer so far — because it’s handy and prevents you from accumulating new pennies — is this:
Carry around four pennies with you at all times; whenever you make a cash purchase, you can always give the cashier a couple of extra pennies instead of getting a couple of extra pennies back. Once you get into the habit, it’s not so hard; I successfully got rid of two years’ worth of pennies this way over the course of about nine months.
