Turned in the Coin Stash

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.

Coin Stash

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.

  1. Cashing in your change is one of the most rewarding experiences in life. It’s like money just rains down from nowhere. We always go together and try to guess closest amount. Price as Right rules of course….is there any other legitimate way to play?? None of this absolute value crap.

  2. We never keep the change around that long. Quarters are set aside for parking meters, nickels and dimes for bus fare, and pennies get spent.

    That’s a helluva chunk of change, though.

  3. Hmm, I’m thinking this ranks with one on the best posts ever on the Deets…but I’m not sure why…it just seems so PSA in a mainstream hipster kinda way, but I’m too out of it to know for sure. 😉
