    Dumb question, but where do you throw all of that extra pocket change in your Model S? Doesn't seem to be a place for it in the console. The charger area would just slosh around and block the charger, and the cup holders.... Just no.

    Was thinking of buying a small leather box or something that could fit behind the cupholders in the console (in that dead space that is otherwise unreadable) and tossing it in there.

    Any other solutions out there that I haven't thought of?

    By the door handle there is a little space which works well for loose change.

    In all the hard-to-reach nooks and crannies between the seats. That's where all mine goes and I don't have to do anything but sit down. Instant deposit.

    That is not a dumb question! The nuns used to tell me there are no dumb questions , right before hitting me in the wrist with a thick wooden ruler :) I too need a good place for change. I hate clutter! In the mornings on my way to work I like to have the .16 for my large 7-11 coffee which I get from my change spot

    As a woman, I don't have this problem as all my change goes in my purse. Maybe you can get a small coin purse that you can dump the change in.

    I like the other suggestion of putting it in a tip jar.

    image.jpeg Here's one option that Walmart sells. I have a 3 coin rectangle holder from a car I had in the early 2000s that I just held on to and leave in the glove box. It keeps them sorted and most importantly... Quiet!

    Mine starts in my pocket but that damn gravity reaches in and pulls it out. Some day I'll catch that mischievous entity.

    This thing costs more than the change it holds.

    And where do the pennies go. You're not really solving the change problem if you don't solve the penny problem.

    No need for it to hold pennies as you gave them to your passenger when you revealed your thoughts.

    I think you mean when they revealed their thoughts.

    Whenever someone tries to give me change, I find someone and pay them to hold it for me, forever. Usually it's the same person. It's like Uber for Change. It works pretty much everywhere you go.
