I just picked up my CR-V Monday. I'm very happy with it so far, especially given that my biggest complaint right now is that it doesn't seem to have a spot to organize loose change. I've spent less than an hour in the car so far, so I might have overlooked an obvious solution. Anyone have any suggestions on this topic?

There is a small compartment on the lower dashboard to the left of the steering wheel. That's the best place I could find to put change.

I also put mine in the cubby to the left of the wheel; that seems to be exactly what it's for, because it won't hold much else, unless you inexplicably want to put your keys there.

I have a used medicine bottle slightly larger than a quarter. It holds a couple dozen quarters. I keep it and a Chapstick in the small section to the left of the front cup holder. Any other change is in my pocket or the jar at home. I considered the small spot below the door pull handle but used that for the wheel lug key. I also considered the lower left dash but am not using that for anything yet.

Hopefully the aftermarket will come up with some designs like the ones for earlier model years

I throw it in the cupholder area and let my water bottle or metal coffee container crush it. When it gets annoying, I empty and start all over. :)

I use a plastic 35mm film can in the center console. (but then I'm one of the few dinosaurs who still occasionally shoots film)

I use this in one of my cars and it works well for me:

This model does not hold pennies, which I prefer, but they make other configurations that do.

To follow up, I bought this model and just received it. Based on some of the reviews and the price, I was expecting it to feel a bit more cheaply made than it is. I'm also impressed that it came with a Velcro mount, which I'll definitely be using. I plan on putting it next to the USB ports.

Change is kept in my small zippered bag that fits nicely into the noted cubby hole as pictured above. The bag keeps it from rattling around. JimBob

I use a small cloth bag initially for holding sun glasses...works well and resides in the center console...I use a few plastic bins in the center console for my stuff. They stack well and keep things separate and easy to access.
