Heavy money

As I am thinking of a camera update (more about that later in the week when the one I’ve rented to test arrives) I decided I would see how much money was in the big, old plastic coke bottle I keep in my closet to dump my small change into. I don’t think I’ve emptied it for about 8 or 9 years so I was intrigued to see what was there.

Unfortunately the local bank no longer has their free coin-counting machine, and the ones in the the supermarkets charge you 11.9%, so I spent $29 on a nice, hand-wound counting machine that worked very well. 

And after about 1 1/2 hours I found myself with 38 lbs of neatly rolled coins- $260 in quarters, $105 in dimes, $26 in nickels and $21 in pennies for a very nice grand total of $412. That’ll help 🙂
