All that loose change you take out of your pockets when you go through airport security and then forget to pick up, is really adding up.

Travelers left behind more than a half million dollars last year at security checkpoints around the country in 2012.

Up until now, the TSA spent the loose change on security. But this week the house passed a resolution calling for the money to go to non–profits helping traveling military families.
