Where do you keep your change?

I don't like change in my pockets but like a good supply in the car. Having limited storage pockets this is the best I could come up with. I like the cup so I can remove it if needed and also to quickly shake some change change out. I also like a good supply of microfiber towels on hand for sunglasses, windows, snot rags...

I DETEST change. In my pockets, vehicle, anywhere. I don't like anything in the vehicle that can move, jingle, thud, or otherwise make any sound simply because I dare to turn the steering wheel and change the direction I'm driving in.

The only thing I detest more than change itself, are the folks in front of me on line at the grocery store who insist on giving the cahsier exact change and take 5 minutes fumbling through their change purse to get 87 cents.

This is one reason why the relative lack of storage "cubbies" in the D (especially with the DVD drive in the center console) doesn't bother me much. I try not to use them!

Microfiber towels is a good call. They don't make noise.

Having said all that....your solution for change looks as good as any.

I hear ya there. I can't stand squeaks, rattles... Even the fan on 2 bothers me as it makes too much noise. I really need a Rolls Oddly, I haven't heard a peep from my change cup. I started off with a towel jammed it to prevent clinks but found I really don't need it. However, I'm still driving gingerly as I break 'er in. Up to 500 miles now.

Note that this is in stark contrast to my better half....when I drive her car and I make a "aggressive" (by her standards) turn, not only is there a racket of noise coming from the center console...but 2 or 3 pairs of shoes, an umbrella, and a folder full of "coupons" comes tumbling out from underneath the seats...

Re: Where do you keep your change?

I have to laugh, because I try to keep as little as possible in my vehicle.

My wife is busily stocking up the Durango this morning with all her necessities.

I agree with JoeyD on the change thing; we never pay anything with change, but all the change we accumulate each day goes in a bucket. When its full (takes about a year) we cash it it.

I agree - fewer cubbies - less stuff in the car = less noise....

Sigh...it's her car, it's her car...ooohhmmm....

Nice solution. I like the microfiber towel idea - good call on that.

This is funny and I can completely relate! So far, the Jeep hasn't accumulated any of these necessities... but it's early. BTW, I like the cup idea.

I keep the change in the glove box with 159 packs of gum.

You can stick the "cloth" side of velcro around the inside of a small can [such as those horrid overpriced imported hard candies] and it sorta keeps the loose change from driving you nuts until you get home and empty it into something until you have enough to take to a bank with a coin counter.

Hate noises.

Re: Where do you keep your change?

Fascinating thread and, Vertrkr, if I don't find some new tip from you daily I am almost disappointed. Wish I could pull your leg and convince you there is a change sorter/holder hidden in the Durango....but you have inspected yours from end to end and could smell my BS a mile away.

I like to have some change available, but I too hate the rattling. I no longer EVER use change at a checkout unless there is nobody in line behind me. Kind of fun to see how much we accumulate in our large change jar at home at the end of the year. Glad I opted not to get the CD player, as I used to end up with a rattle in my 4Runner door pockets when they would end up holding multiple CD cases. I annoyed myself with that.

Dave, as another female Durango owner, I completely relate to your wife stocking up. Along with the requisite hand sanitizer, I've even thrown a swiffer duster refill (okay, might switch to microfiber) in the console to keep the dash dust and lint free in between thorough cleanings. Did she fill the secret tissue holder yet?

Pet peeve..... my cupholders will be used for cups at least 90% of the time. My other half loves to fill his with phones, sunglasses, chargers, receipts, etc., and then when we are together with scalding coffee we get stuck holding it. It is not like he doesn't have other places to put his stuff. He has willingly agreed NOT to do that in the Durango.

Good stuff guys. Keep it coming!

My wife and sons cashed in the jar yesterday - $428 and change.

I stuck a pack in there at delivery. We always keep a full, regular box of tissues. Allergies in the family makes it a requirement. The pocket pack is the backup.
