    Coins? I try not to carry them. I start each day off with no coins and the coins that I accumulate during the day I carry in my right front pocket until that night and then I dump them into a container on my dresser.

    P.S. Do you think the US should do away with pennies and round everything off to the nearest nickle?

    Re: How do you carry your spare change?

    I might suggest a Kangaroo Scrotum Pouch. It would function well as a coin purse as well as a conversation piece. Note the link provided is just one of many you can find them on ebay a lot cheaper.

    Try Col. Littleton's No. 1 pouch $35.00. Pricey but well made and just a nice product.

    I always try to get rid of coins. Lucky me, I have two options:
    1. my kid - he loves coins;
    2. my wife - she loves coins either.

    I find that sometimes scavaging comes in handy. I came across these plastic fluid-measuring vials that hold about 6 ounces each. And they use screw-on cap lids. I prefer to only carry quarters (I don't know why) but surprisingly the diameter is the perfect fit for a stack of them. They fit about $7 worth each. As for the small coins, I haven't decided. It would definitely help to have a holder like the one I saw earlier on this forum string, which is a fabric snap-closure pouch. But then I am privy to "hardshell" holders.

    If I do decide to carry coins, which is fairly rare, I will tuck a couple in my jeans pocket-watch pocket. Generally, I leave my coins either in the car's console or in a container of some sort on the dresser, depending on when I empty my pockets out.

    A pawnshop near where I work usually sells a lot of the small zippered change pouches that the banks used to give out pretty cheap (@$1 a pouch). I usually pick up a few and use one to carry my change, small items (Carmex, safety pins, etc.) and folding money that I spend. I even have a carabiner clipped to the zipper to hold my wedding ring. They also make great pouches for other small items you're keeping in a bigger bag.

    Check out your local banks & pawn shops....they might have a few....

    Didn't read all the way through, so this may have been mentioned already, but what about those plastic tubes I keep seeing at County Comm? Tube Vaults, or something like that. Not sure how big your various coins are, but that might be a decent solution.

    I hate how change sounds in my pocket as I walk around, so I don't carry it. I usually keep it in a jar or cup in my desk drawer and take it the a grocery store that has a Coin Star counting machine in the vestibule.

    I've carried a few coins taped to a folded over 3"x5" card in my wallet. This saved the day last week when traveling in a rental car at night I realized one of the tires was low on air. it was late, & the gas station I pulled in to didn't have anyone working. Of course the air machine only took quarters. EDC to the rescue :roof:

    I've mentioned it in other threads and it was posted in this one a very long time ago, but for US coins a Chawly Changer is da bomb! Go to coindispenser.com and take a look. Cashiers love me when they see mine and nothing beats it for tolls, etc. in the car. Keeps the loose change under a little bit better control. Cheap too.
