It’s a tradition when you’ve done it twice, right?
In this case, my new tradition is to count, stack, and wrap the coins that have accumulated in my presence.
The last time I did this was when we had just moved to Lubbock and I was in the middle of six months of unemployment. Now that I’m unemployed again (temporarily) I decided to count up and deposit all the change that has piled up since 1999. The pictures I took are over at my flickr set, but the one here is my favorite. I just love the Washington Quarter. All the special state quarters are nice, but this one retains my devotion.
How much was wrapped up in all that change? Well, let’s just say that I don’t need to worry about next month’s natural gas bill.
