I ended the stay-in-one-spot experiment today. I think I could have continued, but I had reached the point where I no longer enjoyed it. The test wasn’t about torturing myself. Besides, I needed to dispose of my trash.
While I was out, I took my nearly full change jar to a CoinStar machine. Clinkity plinkity plonkity. One hundred and sixteen dollars and seventy-four cents, after they took their cut. It’s not the greatest savings plan, but it’s easy. The down side is I won’t be able to scavenge the jar the next time I do laundry or wash the van.
