The possibilities are really almost limitless, but it is helpful to have some type of container you can use to place coins, and even occasionally paper bills, that you find in pants or other pockets before throwing them in the washing machine, and also whatever money you find after washing that accidentally slipped through.
Keep whatever you choose to hold the money you find close to wherever you're sorting clothes.
I suggest a laundry shelf close to your other supplies, as long as it isn't somewhere that will easily get knocked around which could cause the container to break.
The other possibility is to actually make your change jar part of the decor of your laundry room. You can do this by choosing either something that you place on your wall, or sit onto a shelf, that is both cute and functional for this task.
Once you see the ideas below shared by readers I'm sure you'll be inspired with some great ideas for what will work in your laundry room!
Then, the only thing you'll have left to choose is whether when you collect the change it becomes yours, or you actually give it back to whoever left it in their pockets!
After all, as they saying goes, "finder's keepers!" :)
Here are some additional ways readers have shown that they collect the pocket change and money found while doing laundry, within their laundry rooms.
The photo above was sent in by a reader, Devrah, who repurposed a child's bank. She said, "'Pocket Change' goes in here. When it starts spilling out of the bottom it goes to the coin machine at the bank. :-)"
Another reader, Diana, sent in the little laundry sign photo above. She explained, "I've had this for laundry change for years!"
Finally, here's a picture from a reader, Mary. She said, "Any monies found in the laundry go into our "Laundry Loot" piggy. When he is full, I take that money and buy something for the whole family, like a new rug or towels."
I like this idea! It is simple, but you can get your own piggy bank and even decorate it to match your laundry room decor.
