How quickly it comes round!
How slowly I progress! But I do progress..
In the Komono (miscellaneous) section Marie Kondo also mentions small change. (I am using her book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying to declutter once and for all!)
I am saving for something special and thought it might be useful to just go around the house collecting the small change - we had an astonishing £109. A tin with something jokey on it about becoming a millionaire yielded £40 in £1 coins. There was £22 in euros from the last European trip. Bags of coins which the children raised on various occasions for charity still sat in drawers and cupboards because when it came to donating it we simply sent a cheque for the requisite amount. Barry raided his piggy bank(!) The change for the plant money jar, a search of pockets and bags....we were richer than we knew!
What surprised us and annoyed us was that the banks didn't want it! None of the banks in town would take it, even bagged up and counted. It is incredibly heavy by the way. 'New rules on money laundering' they said. Tesco have a machine that will count it and take it, but they also take 9.5% of it. After a little persuasion our own bank took it.
Have you found money you didn't know you had?
And are you still progressing?
