Time keeps marching on! Have you seen the cute Halloween items and goodies Disney has told us about this week? Oh my gosh, I wish we could be there so badly right now. I just have to keep my eyes on our June trip and power through. Did you check out my 6 Ways to Cope With Missing Disney post? I’m doing all these right now.
Due to the coin shortage, our local Chick-fil-a is doing a promotion. When you bring in $10 in rolled coins during certain business hours, you get a free sandwich coupon! Y’all know I took advantage of that! We went through the drive through of our local bank and asked for some free coin wrappers, then I came home and cashed out the Storm Trooper bank you see in my picture at the top of the post! All told, I rolled $44 (and my daughter rolled $10.50 out of her bank). We’ll take $30 to Chick-fil-a for the free sandwich promotion (1 per customer) and the rest will head to the bank on another trip. I haven’t rolled my own coins in years, but I have a fond memory of doing it with my Dad. We had one of those giant pickle jars that would easily hold hundreds of dollars in change. I’m glad we were able to do this with our own kiddo- and I turned it into an impromptu lesson on money and numbers!
I got a $5 coupon from eBay on a $5.01 purchase. I used it to snag a small Christmas gift for the kiddo. It’s nice to pick up discounts where you can and I’m happy to see coupons making a comeback!
