Who would have thought that a small cereal bowl could hold $84.00 worth of change?
I have a habit of dumping all my change into that bowl on my dresser soon as I return from work or the store, with the exception of pennies which go into an extra large drink cup. That holds about $35.00 worth of pennies and it's about 2/3's full. I'll wait awhile to roll those.
The cereal bowl was overflowing literally. I tried to put a few more quarters in it and they slithered off. So, I dug out the coin wrappers and just dealt with it. Not my favorite thing to do. I will take them to the bank for paper money and put that paper money into a large jar (yes, it's a Mason jar) in the closet. I use the accumulation of monies to fund the yard work (no, I never do the yard myself. Who has time, plus my yard is like a mountain range what with all the little hills and valleys) and to tip the paper carrier or get a few dollars to take to work occasionally. It's my emergency fund. It's probably got about $250.00 in it now.
I am all showered up and in my jammies. I think I'll go read for awhile and after an hour or so, I should be able to go to sleep.
I have the oldest here tomorrow and I bought some chicken to fry. I'll make gravy too. He'll love it.
Be safe tomorrow and have a good night tonight.
