I know this might sound a little crazy at first, especially in this economy, but for the past 6 or 7 months, every time I get pennies back as change, I have been making it a habit to throw them away.

Now I've heard all the arguements from all my friends, but no one has convinced me that I need to keep them.  To me, a cup full of pennies is like a cup full of gravel.  Pour either one onto a counter in a store, and I bet you'll get the same response.  Check out this video, and maybe you'll feel the same way I do.
