Change is a wonderful thing!

April 2nd, 2007 at 10:33 am

I hauled two GIGANTIC Tupperware containers full of change to the bank this morning -- almost throwing out my back in the process -- and was delighted to find that I had amassed $348.02 in pennies, quarters, nickles and dimes. It's currently all residing in my checking account, but I'm debating between putting it in the new car fund or the new fence fund.

Meanwhile, here are some other things I found in the coin jar:

$11.50 in Pesos
$1.10 in Euros
500 Yen
2 safety pins
2 buttons
1 flimsy metal ring that looked like it held a key at some point
1 gold circle that's the size of an eraser head
1 McDonald's Monopoly piece good for a free small drink (expired in 1996)
Enough lint to fill two or three belly buttons

All but the foreign money now resides in the trash.

    I have a fence fund, too! Why not split it into both funds? I loved the "other" stuff in the change. Thanks for the laugh!

    That had to be heavy!! The "other" stuff cracked me up too.

    I have a paper clip, a bus token, a Canadian dime, 2 loonies, $15 in Canadian bills, and a coat button that needs to be sewn back on in mine, along with various coin wrappers and of course, American change.
