Turn Spare Change into New Games with the ‘Chump Change Challenge’



Every year, I do something called the Chump Change Challenge. The idea is simple. Collect all of your spare change for an extended period of time, Cash it in when you’re ready and use those funds to buy something you need for your collection. Even if it’s FMV (fair market value) it’s worth it. After all, you’re only using your spare change.

I was able to get a few things this time around, but the one thing I was really looking out for was that Data East Arcade Classics for Wii. I’m proud to say I have it in my collection once again as I had lost my original copy. I even had funds left over to buy a nice Game Boy lot of games.

I think it’s fun and it’s a great way to give you an excuse to go ahead and pay full price for a game you’re having trouble finding. Even if you have to get it through ebay, it’s all good.
