Let’s talk about spare change. You never seem to have it when you need it, and you never know what to do with it when you do. We lose pennies under cushions and car seats, store nickels in jars in the kitchen, hoard quarters for long-overdue laundry days. When we use debit and credit cards to make transactions, though, that spare change quickly becomes much less frustrating. We don’t fret over finding somewhere to put it or remembering where it was for the next transaction because it’s usually right where we left it.
