I used to love to collect change as a kid. My grandfather had what seemed to me at the time, an enormous jar of change that he kept on top of his dresser. He was very diligent about adding his spare change to that jar every day as part of his routine when he would come home from work. Then when the jar would become full, I would help him roll the coins into paper coin organizers that we would eventually take to the bank and exchange for bills. Participating in this process first hand really helped me realize how much can be accumulated over time just through saving spare change.

If you have cable you probably feel a pang of frustration each month when the bill arrives. We have a love hate relationship with cable. We love the access and variety it provides but hate the high costs and contracts that come along with it. For a long time there has been no viable alternative to cable or satellite TV subscriptions, but that is all beginning to change with the rise of the streaming device. Products like Roku and Apple TV are the top devices, but there are many others to choose from as well.
