I want a nickel, dammit.

I want a nickel, dammit.

I’ve never been good at saving money. I’m getting a little better at keeping things in the bank, but right now the most reliable thing for me to do is…hoard change. Yep, you heard right, I’m a roller. I used to roll pennies with my mom when I was a kid, so the act of getting the coins together is oddly soothing. There’s something very substantial about building a collection of rolled coins. Also, it works. I’ve made a couple of purchases with my hoarded savings. The one thing that can be irritating is when you’re one coin short of a roll. I get so peeved. I’ll look all over the house for that one last shiny metal disk. This time it didn’t work, and I’m faced with $1.95 in nickels. Damn.
