All stray coins around my house go in the coin box, an big old metal box with a handle. Pennies, Nickels, found coins, pocket change, under the cushions change, the whole lot. Then once a year we take the box to the bank and get the family some nice something we’d other wise not be able to afford. Last year we had $255 in there! =)
Nickel chocolate bars were also the size of the $1+ bars you get today. And they tasted like real chocolate not weird sweetened wax.
