Spare change… I hate carrying around spare change. It always seems to fall out and into the bottom of my purse, not to mention it always seems to be predominately pennies. Am I right? For a while now we have gotten into the habit of having a bag, and I mean an old Wal-mart or ziplock bag, in the laundry room where we toss the change in when we come home. The theory behind the idea was that it not only got the change off our hands but it created a “rainy day” play fund. I can’t tell you how many times I dug out enough money to get ice cream… and yes I was that customer that went through the Braum’s drive thru and paid $6.75 in change! It all spends right?
Well, tonight Chase decided that he wanted some ice cream and as we started digging out the change he decided we needed to take our coins into the counter in Homeland and get them traded out for cash. After having the coins counted we ended us with $40 cash! Seriously! While this may not seem like a lot of money to some people I find it rather amusing that we accumulated $40 in change in our laundry room! It’s amazing what time and patience can acquire! With that we went to Braum’s and treated ourselves to the joy of ice cream, okay well I absolutely love ice cream so it was plenty exciting for me!
