We now have 2 'change jars' that sit on my desk at home every day. One for the Babe. One for the Bird. This is made up of what I pull out of my pockets most every day. Sometimes it is change. Sometimes it is cash. Some of it in the form of $2 bills from holidays like Easter.
$52.12 for the Babe. $46.92 for the Bird. Interesting how it worked out. I tried to put even amounts of coins in each jar each day. Guess I was off a bit. The Bird is younger, so she has time on her side for the interest to catch up!
Here's the history:
Across those five years, the new average is $85.46. This year, we were above the average. Last year, we were below.
