Coin banks are the easiest way to save and the most practical way to get rid of coins. We can’t deny it – coins are heavy when they come in bulk. Spending them on useless things for the sake of getting rid of them isn’t the best solution. Putting them in a coin bank is. Before you know it, you would have saved a lot of money.

The hard part comes in when you finally open it. You have to sort the coins by yourself so you could count how much you’ve saved. As someone with several full coin banks at home, I have encountered this problem many times. But I spend zero effort in finding a way to make life easier for me. Luckily, someone has come up with a solution and shared it to the world.
