The coin stash in the Kohler household was getting out of control, so I decided it was time to do something about it before it reached Brinks proportions.
Here is what it looked like when it went to the credit union.
My credit union has an amazing coin counting machine. It puts the ones at Rainbow to shame and it’s free. It took around a minute to spin, sort, and count the 3 quarts of coins. A guy who was in for a loan application was asking me all about the coin counter like I had specialized skills. I think he was pondering whether he could skip the loan process by checking his couch cushions.
A few coins stuck to the bowl and when i tried to push them in realized they were stuck their for a reason: Canadian.
Once the noise stopped, a receipt popped out with the results: $271.63.
