the king is in his counting house

when Hubby gets home everynight he emptys his coin into our money box.  It takes about a year to fill and in the last 12 months it has had alot of coin dropped into it

Hubby used a can opener to open the tin and started to stack all the coin.
Final tally banked. $565.00 Priceless!
Thats over 500 dollars that we would not have had if he had just hung on to it, and spent it on stuff we really didnt need. ie lollies, gum you get the idea.
It worked out brilliantly, as hubby had his eyes tested and he needs glasses to read and work on the computer.
cost of new glasses, $435.00. The money is there waiting to pay for the new glasses and we are still ahead over $100.00.
New money box is in place and already it has some coin in it.
Its a great way to save.
see ya

We used to drop our pennies, nickles and dimes in a carboy. Got pretty heavy. Now we have an assortment of jars bowls etc and one of these days we will take them to the bank, they have a change counter. The quarters are saved for DH when he has to do laundry when he's out of town. :-)
