    The small safes are movable, but they are heavy. Mine is somewhat hidden and it's main purpose is for fire and water protection. Even my husband couldn't steal the safe it's so well hidden, so I'm not too worried.:D

      One thing to also remember is to be sure that you have smaller bills... some stores may not have change for that $100 bill. $20, $10, $5, and $1 is probably the bills you wanna keep on hand :)

      beat you to death with it because it is empty.

        HA! I hide mine from my husband too! I'm not too worried about burglars getting in and taking it, I'm afraid HE is going to get in and take all the money!

              Hey, if they can do the 'round up and keep the change' at banks (where they round up the purchase to the next dollar and deposit the change in a savings account for you), then why cant I do that on my own? Amazing how much change will add up and how fast.

              Here is the thing with pennies, anything before 1983 is real copper. If it is newer it is just copper washed and not worth it. I keep a separate bin for the early pennies. Nickles not to sure on. I think that falls under the same as when they took silver out of circulation.

                Not to be too anal but 1982 was a transition year for pennies,
                some were copper and some were the zinc type.

                  1982 was the turning point for the pennies as some have stated. They were 95% copper back then, and are now worth more than face value. 1983 to current, are mostly zinc. Nickels, a few years ago, were worth more than face. Now, they are worth half of face value. Daily markets reflect value and can be checked at this link; http://www.coinflation.com/

                    pennies

                    if the penny is a 1982 drop it on a hard surface. a copper penny has a ring to it and a zinc penny has a very different clink sound. i have been sorting though pennies and have about 50$ worth so far. the us nickel has been made the same for a long time and is made 25% nickel and 75% copper and is currently worth about 7 cents per nickel. so i would suggest start collecting pennies and nickels before the mine gets wise and changes the properties of both. i have been hoarding pure copper bullion, 999 silver bullion, pennies and nickels for some time now. investing in metal is the best investment in my opinion. if all else fails at least the pennies and nickles are at least worth face value so you cant go wrong

                      Why would you keep cash on hand. Federal reserve notes are damn about useless now.

                            FYI.

                            A 40 oz. bottle holds about $200 in dimes (and only a dime will fit through the mouth), and a Mickey's hand gredade holds about $60 in quarters and both are pretty darned heavy.

                            I've never counted the nickels in the Paul Mason wine bottle or the pennies in the handle of Fris Vodka.

                            It's amazing how much it all piles up. Last time they were full I cashed them in for just over $500!

                            Currently I'm working on an all quarter gallon beer jug. Hopefully I'll get a new rifle when that one is done.

                            All this coin saving and it never occured to me to actually to "save" them.

                              I am looking to connect with people in and near Nevada that are survival oriented. Anyone out there that has "part of the act" together?? I have land that is paid for. My wife and I are putting water there this summer. We need like minds that want to be "off grid" and become self sufficient. Let us know.

                                I like silver. I have more invested in this precious metal than I do in the stock market. It is not a piece of paper. It is a tangeable asset I can store on my own land. The way the dollar is headed its is a good idea. But if you need to barter after the collapse nothing beats ammo
                                Those who would trade freedom for security will end up with neither.
