Penny Uses For Practical Purposes

There’s an old British saying, “Look after the pennies, and the pounds will look after themselves.” Meaning, if you focus on saving small amounts of money, you will end up with larger amounts.

Yet, there are still plenty of things to do with pennies, giving them a different type of value that is worth considering.
