Coin Jar Redeemed

my coin jar drawerIt’s back to the US tomorrow, so I took my change jar to the bank and had the coins counted – and now have an extra $270 in my wallet. One of the nice things about coin jars in Japan is that the coins range in worth from a penny to about $5 which makes emptying your pockets each day quite profitable for your savings.

Pretty much packed and ready to go – not especially looking forward to the 10 hour flight (not to mention the 4 hour layover in Tokyo), but I guess it goes with the territory. I should get back on a more regular posting schedule and finish up the gas saving list once we’re settled in…and hopefully the trip back will find some interesting stories to tell…

    Sounds to me like Canada. They have a loonie ($1), a toonie ($2), but it sucks because all of a sudden $5 turns into a bunch of coins and I don’t carry a wallet.
