Even a child with a piggy bank may get a good amount of use out of a gift like this. It can help teach your child the significance of saving money and to value pennies as well as pounds. It can also teach them how to turn spare change into enough money to buy that special toy they want.
You can buy a coin sorter in some major shops or on the internet. They can be manual or electric and the price is usually very reasonable. The electric ones cost a bit more but are much easier to operate and you can go through a great deal more change accurately and quickly. A lot of supermarkets and shopping centres also have large coin sorters at the front of their stores. These can be used for the same purpose as the ones you have at home. Some may give you a redeemable coupon for the store or they may give cash back.
This is the same type of device that banks use to sort coins for their customers. Any employee there can tell you what a wonderful time saver this device can be. Weather it is for you or someone else, a coin sorter is something every house can benefit from.
