15,000 pennies...

You could say i'm a coin collector. You could also say i'm a packrat. These 2 qualities would make it seem obvious that I might have a lot of loose change hanging around. Well that part is true.
From the title of this thing, you might get the idea i've been hording pennies for probably 10 or 15 years.
I finally have a use for the minor amount of penny cash i'd get, so I packed up my many bottles of pennies and went to my local supermarket with one of those great machines that count your change. Sure they take almost 10% but you know, I couldn't pay anyone i know 15 bucks to roll $150 in pennies.
Anyway my point is, hooray for the guy who invented the coinstar machines, otherwise i'd have half a ton of pennies hanging around because i'm sure as hell not gonna roll them myself!

If you're a coffee drinker, you can turn your money into a Starbuck's card and they drop the fee!

Only at one kind of machine, I believe. Anyway, that's what the commercial let me to believe.
