    That money is fine by me. Unless you're the guy standing in line behind that guy that is trading in his "Detroit Roll" of Crappy Tire money, and the cashier has to count out a pile of paper "nickles" and "dimes", with a few 50 cent and dollar ones in the mix.:rflmao:

    Our new Goodwill is so weird. Clothing is a nice even number. Electronics are a different ballgame. Something might be $3.41 or $10.72. They also don't charge tax.
    Well, a bullet of course!

    Long past time to get rid of the penny. Get rid of the nickel too. Both are only useful to be tossed into my coin jar, for yearly reimbursement at the nearest Coinstar machine (at 10% loss to me!).

    If the banks around here still had coin-counting machines then that's exactly what I'd do!

    I started emptying my pocket when I get home from work. A $5/$6 coin stacker set, some free paper rolls from a bank, Bob's your uncle!

    I also save all the one dollar bills 'til the stack gets pretty high and then trade that in. Sometimes that gets to be enough to seek out some more audio goodies! ;) :)

    (BTW, the dollar bill idea is from Dave Ramsey. Look him up.)

    His joke stems from Marie Antoinette, an ex-Queen of France.

    She supposedly wanted to know why the peasants were rebelling. Someone told her it was because they had no bread.

    She said, "Well then, let them eat cake".
