IF YOU’VE EVER wondered what to do with the small change floating around in your wallet, here’s a suggestion: buy a car.

A man in China has done exactly that: the businessman turned up at a car dealership this week with ten bags of notes and coins containing 153,000 yuan (around €19,500). Just to make for some extra work, none of the note or coins were worth more than 10 cents each.

The man had accumulated the money from his food additives business where many customers paid in small amounts of cash.
