25 dollars worth of dimes...?

Canada

This is always happening to me, and when I realized a while back that I had over 100 dollars worth in change, I decided that I should actually start doing something about it. So, I would make it a point to pay for coffee with my change, or use perfect change at the store, anything I could to do put it to use. I was doing so well, except with dimes and 5 cent pieces-tonight I didn't even attempt the 5 cent pieces, but I got to work on the dimes with those change rolls and...well, let's say that 25 dollars worth of dimes, when all rolled up, isn't nearly as bad as it seems. However I get the feeling that I should take them to the bank, because if I actually tried to buy something with them...the cashier may be less then pleased at the idea of verifying the amount.

Here, banks charge you for counting your change & exchanging them for cash... unless you open an account with them & have it deposited in there instead!

Not here, not yet anyway, people in general are just kinda shocked that I still use cash;)

@HebrewGreekStudies , haha. I think taking it to the bank would be the best idea, whatever cashier would be spared from verifying the amount for you, would be grateful ;) !

There are machines at the bank to put the money in and they count it for you and give you a receipt and then you go and cash the money. Easy to do.

I have a half-gallon jar it's nearly filled now with coins. As much as I like watching it grow, I dread counting it out and rolling it.
