For the last week, I’ve been making a concerted effort to use up the big piles of coins we have in various corners around our apartment. I leave each day with a backpack that weighs an extra three pounds in quarters, dimes, nickels, and pennies.
It’s a bit ridiculous how satisfying I find it to see the piles shrinking, and to count out $3.50 in change when I buy a cone of Tasti D-Lite.
Thanks to a tip from Marci Alboher, of the always-useful, always-interesting New York Times blog, Shifting Careers, I checked out Subscribe to this blog’s feed.
