  11. My kids always laugh at me for picking up pennies I find. When the recession hit, we couponed and value shopped a lot. Many of our back to school supplies were purchased with those pennies during the 1 cent sales at the office supply stores. The kids were amazed at the deals they found. This summer they are looking forward to the sales again.

  12. In highschool I was mad when my prom date asked me after the fact to pay for half the ticket ($20) so I gave him 10 rolls of pennies I had been collecting! Knew they’d come in handy for something :)

  13. I used them on those great 1 cent deals for school supplies last year also.

  14. I was broke and needed gas, bad!
    I rolled to a station and started scrambling around my car scooping up what coins I could. I had a few quarters buy mostly pennies.
    I scooped them all onto the counter and counted them out. I had enough to get home and borrow a twenty from my wife.
    From now on, anticipating another emergency, I always leave my change in my car for emergencies.

    my favorite use of pennies is to give them to my neighbor’s kids for birthdays. they think it’s a fortune for their piggy banks (and who knows, maybe it is since i never count it). of course, they get a ‘real’ gift as well!

  27. I had seen a clearance table in a department store. It stated 50 percent off all clearance items. When I looked in it I saw this all leather men’s belt that was really nice. It was beautifully embossed around the whole belt. There was nothing at all wrong with the belt either. The original cost was $25.00. It had been marked down several times. The clearance cost was 50 cents. I took it to the sales person telling him the belt was in the table that stated 50 percent off all clearance items. He looked at the price you should have seen his face LOL.. He didn’t believe me about the 50 percent off, but when he rang it up… guess what it rang up 25 cents! You should have seen all of our faces then LOL… A deal I will never forget :)
