If the tip jar isn’t making it easy enough to grab your spare change on the go, then take Offbeat Homie SmashedTogether’s advice…
After a few years in the glamourous field of serving food, the little Mason jar designated for my spare change was overflowing with jingle jangle.
As someone who is always making that mad dash to the door, most days the whole lot of it was dumped unceremoniously on the floor to root through for precious bus fare, vending machine coinage, and the necessary float I was expected to bring to make change for my customers. So, the pirate chest became the ideal solution.
Now I have a gorgeous conversation starter decked out with accents like an ornamental dagger, costume jewels, and seashells, and my gold doubloons are easily found among the smaller silver coins (love that Canadian currency!).
Sick of that old piggy bank? Give piracy a try!
