LadyLee Birthday Monies 2016
Dedicated to Sasha... who has a coin jar of her own!
I save all my change in a mason jar from birthday to birthday. I use it as "blow money", i.e., money that I can just blow on something I really want. I like to cash in my birthday change on my birthday, but that didn't happen this year. I decided to wait.
I did cash it in around a week later. That was the next time I would come across a Kroger with a coin counting machine.
I took a photo of my change jar first.
There's something different this year. I saved some dollar bills in the jar also.
Maybe I have done this in the past. But I think this year that the change jar was in the laundry room for the better part of the year (I don't know why, though), and I would throw in any change and dollar bills I pulled out of pants pockets while sorting laundry.
So I cashed it in.
$62 in change before the coin peoples took their cut.
And there was $32 in paper money.
Grand total? 32 +55.40 = $87.40
I didn't do anything with the money. I just put it up, and I will use it whenever I think up something I really want as a gift for myself. I was looking for a new satchel/briefcase for work, but LadyTee gave it to me one as a birthday gift (More on that later).
Thanks, LadyTee! That worked out great!
I got a $61 escrow refund check from my mortgage company, so I am going to put that with the money. That will give me around $150. I can buy something nice enough with that.
