Piggy bank raid


When you’re going on a long trip, but monetary measures are short I reckon that unorthodox methods of cash gathering suddenly just springs to mind, in our case, the local house “gold mine”… the piggy bank and the copper coin bucket.

I never really learned to spend change, change is something of a bother to me, it’s something that you don’t want but need to keep to be thrifty. And I certainly wouldn’t pay anyone with it, not yet at least, I need to wait another 40 years for that.

You know when you are in a massive hurry at the supermarket checkout, and at the front is a dear old lady who just won big time playing bridge with her fellow cream tea and brandy ladies. This winning is of course in the form of small change (as is the amount of pension you get in this country) and she is determined to spend it all, so she is paying her £33.23 shopping with 1 and 2 penny coins.

First we where going to use the coinstar machines until we found out the they take 7%!!, outrageous! , so instead we’re gonna count it our selves, ooooh the excitement!

EDIT: total amount £355.28 !!! that’s a lot of copper
