Cashing in

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.


  1. Four and a half days - that's pretty good!

  2. No fee for CoinStar when you take one of the gift cards they offer.
