Penny arcade


I have a bowl of coins on my window ledge that I add to each night.

Commerce bank offer a free coin counting service – you just tip it and the machine does the rest. I did it once before and the machine asks you to guess how much you have just tipped in. I guessed $3 and it ended up being over $30!!! It really is surprising how much a handful of coins can be worth.

I am going back to Commerce Bank tomorrow with more coins. You can ask them to give you your money however you like – I’m getting it in quarters to pay for the washing machine in the flat. Free laundry (sort of).

Update – I got $11.27 from my coin jar. That’s almost enough for two washer/dryer loads.
