Shopping for cash tins can be a rewarding process, since people often take a large amount of price in the container their cash goes into. Some people buy these tins for their home as a place to put lose change and dollars they haven’t added to their wallet contents yet. These tins often have a key lock on them which may or may not be locked at home, depending on the security of the house. If people have a large amount of company coming over all the time, they might not want to keep the money tin unlocked. On the other hand, if there are not a lot of visitors at the house, leaving the tin unlocked may make it easier to access. If you have to constantly search for the key when wanting to add money to the tin, you may be less-likely to add money to it in the first place.
People also sometimes purchase cash tins as a container to hold money in at an event. Pet shows can be big places where such tins can come in handy. Managers of such events don’t usually want their cash displayed out in the open, so a money tin is a great place to keep cash until it can be deposited at a bank. Even though there is a lock on most money containers, the container should always be watched carefully. If a money container is left unattended, someone could steal it and try to break it open later on. Since the main reason for holding most events is to earn revenue, losing all the money an event makes to a thief can be a major disappointment.
Another thing to try to remember is that you should have several money containers when managing a big event. That way, all the cash the event earns is not in one place. If one container is stolen, all of the cash is not gone if there is more than one container. Multiple containers can be more difficult to keep track of, but organized event managers are often able to successfully monitor where the cash is at all times. If you are an event manager, you should try to make sure that at least one of the money containers stays with you as much as possible during the event. Though trusting people is important, you should not try to believe that everyone is perfect and won’t steal your money container if it is left unattended at the event.
There are some money tin items with a slot in the top where you can drop money in while leaving the tin locked. This is a good idea for people who frequently need to deposit money in, but don’t often need to take money out during an event. Some people also use this as a variation of a “piggy bank” when they are at home. Adding coins to a container continuously can quickly cause this money to add up to a substantial amount over a period of time.
