Lots of Change

While there is lots of change going on in my life right now with Todd & I moving in together tomorrow, we also had lots of loose change that we needed to count. We combined both of our jars of loose change and headed to coinstar to turn it in. Since coinstar takes almost 10% of the money it counts, we decided to turn in our change for an Amazon giftcard instead so we didn't lose any money.
Our jar of coins

Todd & I bet each other how much we thought was in the jar--Todd guessed $83 and I guessed $127. We were both way off!


We had $200.18 in the jar!

Todd is excited for our Amazon giftcard
Now we just have to agree on what we want to buy with it...

I love getting Amazon gift cards! I got a couple hundred in credit card rewards and it was so much fun to order whatever I wanted but didn't need badly without paying anything. I stretched those babies out for months before I finally spent the last of it on my Garmin.
