Josh and I have the same strange habit: we don't spend our change. Instead we throw it in a change jar or bowl or whatever and let it pile up for a while (I think mine's going on a year!).
Josh has been working in Mesquite over the last few weeks and I've been bored. So to pass time while he is gone I decided to do a little project: count our coins.
[Disclaimer: I know I can just take our change to the grocery store and pour it in one of those machines BUT they end up taking 20% of your money just because the machine counted it! If you roll your own coins the bank will exchange the money for you for no fee!]
After three days of separating, counting, and rolling (keep in mind I still went to work), we ended up with $295.50!
Yep! That's right! All in coins!
200 bucks just in quarters!
All I need is 4 quarters and I'll have another roll of $10! That's $305.50 total!
We're going to go out to a nice steak dinner to celebrate. An no, we will not be paying in coins!
