I just rolled up the change that was in my coin jar. I don’t know exactly when the last time I did this was, just since I found some 2005 nickels at the bottom of the jar, I think that it’s probably only been a year and a half or so. I don’t know exactly how much I expected to get from it, but here’s the finally tally:
$30.50, plus some loose change that will go straight back into the jar for next time.
It seems high, although I did the math – if it has been a year and a half, then that’s about 550 days since I last emptied the jar, which means I put about 5 cents a day into the jar. Sounds about right.
Add this to the other rolls of change I have still lying around from last time, and I have $41.50 to take to the bank on Monday.
