I don't pay with cash often, but I save the coins when I do. This is something I learned from my parents, who also set aside their coins. As kids, we'd get so excited for the rolling party - sorting the coins and putting them in the paper tubes to turn in at the bank. (I was so proud of myself when I finally had enough coordination to start the tube. Did anyone else struggle to get that first coin to lay flat?)
For this round though, I took the cheater route and let the coin counting machine do the work. So here are my coins from 2013:
Oooh, ahhh. Care to guess the total value? To give you some context, that's an 8 cup (nearly 2 liters) container and there are a ton of pennies (only worth 1¢).
Scroll down for the answer. :)
I'm so bad at these. I always guess way less than what's actually there.
My guess for this container? 5 or 6 bucks.
$18 - what?! How close was your guess? Do you save coins?
