The Douchebag Jar is a running gag on the tv show New Girl. The purpose of the jar is to help correct Schmidt's behavior, he is to put money in the jar for any comment/action he makes that is considered douchey.
As of the episode Bathtub the money in the jar was used to dry clean Schmidt's suits, which Jess and Winston had ruined when their secret bathtub plan backfired.
Schmidt is the only character in the series to put money in the jar.
