Money, Money, Money… Must Be Funny

Last night we pulled out The Money Drawer. We throw all of our loose change into a drawer at the end of the day. We’ve been accumulating for years, only taking out the gold coins when we’re desperate. I’ve been worried about losing the bottom of the drawer, because it was so heavy it could hardly be pulled out anymore.

Coin Drawer
At our bank, they want you to count out the coins and put them into bags before you bring them in. So we watched Wipeout and sorted coins until we ran out of bags. What you see below is $1000 in $1, $2 or 50¢ coins. One THOUSAND dollars. In CHANGE. That was sitting in a drawer in our house.

$1000 in Coins
And that’s not even all of it. We have a ton more $1 coins. And then there’s all of the 20¢, 10¢, & 5¢ coins to go. I’d bet there’s at least another $500 at least. I feel a bit like someone with a mattress full of cash, but it’s a nice little stash to deposit right before we go on holidays!

    Firstly, love.love.love the tile flooring.
    Secondly, it's pretty impressive how much money you two have gathered like little squirrels 🙂 Evey was sitting next to me when she saw all of your coins. She yelled out "mommy look at all of those money coins! I wish I had all of those money coins in my piggy bank." Teehee!
