On my trip this year I amassed quite the collection of coins from around the place. I always like to keep one or two coins or a small bank note from the places I go, so I'll often pick the one I like the most early on and take it out of my wallet so I don't spend it. But then I'm really bad at spending all my change before I leave so I inadvertently end up with way more than I wanted once I'm home. Especially after I've emptied all my bags and found all the extra coins that found their way…
