Guess what I did today?

I used nine rolls of pennies to buy myself breakfast.

My new neighborhood is of a higher caliber than I'm used to, so I haven't been buying myself breakfast as much. Gone are the days of daily doughnuts and iced coffees for $1.50. Now if I'm running late, all I can get my hands on to make it through the morning are a vegan cookie and organic tea for $4.25.

(P.S. I'd seen a sign at this deli previously saying they NEEDED pennies, so I wasn't being a jerk by bringing my pennies over. Plus, I had no cash on me and was an hour late for work, what would you have done?)

(P.P.S. I moved again in case you didn't pick up on context clues. That's 5 neighborhoods in 2 years!)
