Change

Can I spare some change? Sure can. Emptied my coin jar into a bucket and walked it over to a Coinstar machine at the Lucky on Fulton. I brought my bike but forgot the key for my bike lock. Asked some stranger on a bike to lock it up to hers, she obliged but told me she wouldn't be in there long. I told her not to worry and just leave my bike unlocked when she was done. There was no way I was going home for my key, I was exhausted carrying all 70lbs(30 kilos, get metric already) the 5 blocks to the store.

End Result: Quarters 2546 Dimes 1656 Nickels 833 Pennies 3058 Total: $874.33

I think I'll put this money towards a nice new camera, so I can post some pretty photos on flickr. Fortunately my unlocked bicycle was still outside the store waiting for me, otherwise the money would have been spent on replacing it.

That's a lot of change... How long had you been saving?

Probably got the jar about 6 years ago, and only dipped into it once before and cashed out $90.

2546 Quarters? But quarters are like GOLD in SF... Although I guess you must never drive or do laundry in a pay machine.

Now I'm jealous.

Nice work.

I have my own washer and dryer and ride muni as little as possible. And having lived near Haight street for so long am really good at refusing to spare anything.
