A few cool money wins this week!…
– My insurance guy asked me to leave an online business review, in return for a $5 Starbucks gift card! I was going to leave a review anyway, but cheers to a free $5! Pumpkin spice, here we come! ☕️
– Remember those surf fins I found on the beach?… I just sold them yesterday for $35 to a guy on Craigslist! Now that they are released back into the wild, I wonder if the ocean will bring them back to me again one day? 🤔
– Yesterday I cashed in my spare change jar to help with the national coin shortage. Didn’t realize I was sitting on $33.79 in coins! Love finding money we’d nearly forgotten about! 💸
What’s going on in your world? Any big or small wins to share?
*Something weird at the bank… At first the teller said they would only accept coins if they were “pre-rolled” in those paper roll things. Isn’t that illegal? I thought banks HAVE to accept coins no matter how they come. Anyway, after cracking some jokes and making him laugh he changed his mind 🙂

I don’t have tons of loose change in the house but did have a small dish of coins. So when some kids came around selling candy bars door-to-door for their school fundraiser, I bought several and used up some of the coins. I don’t think I inconvenienced them since they just turn in all the money for the fundraiser. Coins back in circulation – Support the kids’ fundraiser – Candy for me. Triple win!
Great story! Win/win/win! I hope the candy bars were delicious!
Nothing new about the banks requiring “rolled” coins. We have been doing that for over 30 years. Or, we take the coins to the supermarket where there’s a machine, throw it all in and out comes dollar bills (of course, there was a little fee).
I was surprised about the number of foreign coins and fakes I found in my stash.
