Spare change. With space and time in short supply in our fair city, we have been building on the concept of the "Landing Strip" for some time: the place where you deal with everything that comes into your home.
We change receptacles every few years, but our latest favorite way to sort change when we come in the door is with stainless metal ice cream cups. Rather than let it pile up in a mix, we sort coins into four small bowls whenever we come in, which makes it a lot nicer to look at and much easier to grab ahold of quarters when you need them. We found them at Amazon (6 or $14) and also at any kitchen supply store on the Bowery. MGR
