Digital Counting Money Jar – Look after the pennies and so on

Image

There’s no need to obliterate the piggy bank to count your funds, grab one of these Digital Counting Money Jars and it’ll do all the work for you. Its LCD display shows you how much you’ve saved as it can recognise pound and euro coins as they’re inserted. Press the button to reset it. £13.49.

If you want one for US currency, check Amazon. If you want Australian currency try here.

The lid has a slot and a digital LCD screen. Every time you put a coin in -it works only with euros and pounds-, the money jar counts it and updates the display to show the total amount of money inside the jar. The piggy bank has a reset button so you can set the counter back to zero (it’s the only way to do this because, if you open the jar, the counter will keep going).

  • Bizarrely enough I have one of these (was given it as a gift; it works just as you'd expect) but I also know where you can get one for a third of the price:

    (if you're afraid of strange links on the internet – and good for you – it's at bigoffers.co.uk; search for "digital money coin counting")

      Thanks for that Chris, I'm actually tempted (what with all this loose copper around the place). :)

      <Update: Hah, just tried to buy one at £3.00 and it says "Sorry, you need to spend £10.00 before you can check out." Nice little scam on their part!> :)

  • Oh my… me too. It's just a bit of fun really, because if you're really looking to count your millions, it'll take you ages. Also, if you put a coin in the slot and then pull it out again, it sometimes counts it, even though it's not in the jar.
