Spare Change – What is it?!

Most cash transactions are ancient history.  When was the last time you paid for something under $1?  Perhaps it was the neighborhood Lemonade stand, or maybe you’ve used a few quarters in the laundry room or vending machine.  In the current world, it’s rare to use spare change, so why not invest it with Acorns?
