I carry those wallets with the coin pouches built in. If I am charged say, $5.67 for something, I give the counter help exact change. If I don't have exact change I may hand the counter help $10.02, $10.07, or $10.17 to get back the fewest large coins possible. I never have "spare change" to roll or count.

I do the same thing if I don't have the exact change in order to avoid getting more pennies. But I have noticed that the quality of store clerks has gone down since this economic boom started. If they see that $10 bill in your hand, they quickly punch that into the register. If you say wait I have some coins, you get 1 of 2 reactions.

Sorry the amount is entered and I have to give you the change listed. or You get that funny look on their face as they try to figure out the change to give back. Many times they get it wrong and you have to show them why.
