We have been saving change since we met nine years ago. He started JUST before he met me. Anyway, he won't spend it. I told him the mint was going to invade our house and take thier money back and that we were screwing up the amount of change they would have to make every year, because who would think of saving change for NINE YEARS. At first we wanted to get enough to cover a mortgage payment that way if something happend we would always have it, well we passed that a few years ago. My husband is a pack rat anyway but I think we are going a little over the top with this one!
