... to bring you the results of my "industrious" mood early Wednesday morning.
Background: When I come home for the day, I empty out my pockets. On a shelf near the fridge, I had a steel "piggybank" can with a coin slot in the top flat surface. Pennies, nickels and dimes go in, no matter how much I have. Quarters go into a different container, for laundry usage.
I noticed yesterday that it was pretty full; it was heavy with loose change.
So from about 12:30 a.m. till about 4 a.m., I separated the coins — pennies in one bowl, nickels in another, dimes in another. I managed to count and stack the nickels and dimes during that period, and during my somewhat short lunch break Wednesday afternoon, I got the pennies done.
This is the result, all nice and neat and ready to be taken to the bank and deposited in my savings account.
750 pennies = 15 rolls at 50 cents per roll = $7.50
400 dimes = 8 rolls at $5 per roll = $40
280 nickels = 7 rolls at $2 per roll = $14
1,430 total coins for a total of $61.50
The life of DZER is just crying out for a reality show, huh?
