But personally I have taken the concept of penny hoarding up a notch and instead, I hoard nickles!
And, by the way, The Penny Hoarder even has a post about Nickle Hoarding here.
The post above pretty much sums up the reasons I hoard nickels but I hadn't actually read that post until today when I was doing a little research.
I personally like hoarding nickels because it is a great way for me to save money.
Nickles are one coin I don't really spend that often and yet I get them in change quite often.
I also like to get $10 in nickles every time I go to the bank. This has allowed me to build up a pretty decent stash of nickels and I usually don't miss the money after a day or so.
I also have never been tempted to "dip into my savings" as the thought of trying to purchase something with a bunch of nickels is a bit embarrassing and going to the bank to exchange them in order to purchase something is simply too time consuming.
It also is an enjoyable hobby of mine to look through the nickels for old dates. So far I have found only a couple silver ones and one really old one like the ones in the picture.
Hoarding nickels is just a simple way to save some extra money here and there.
Do you hoard nickels or any other coins?
Do you have any good knowledge of nickels you can share?
