Apparently all my other drafts require lots of writing, and since I have a midterm in... an hour or so, my contribution today will be short.
When I go around every day, I keep a small bag of change with me. I don't really buy stuff that often, but it has come in handy before. The problem I face is that I don't want to carry too much change, but want enough so I don't get coins in return. I found a website several weeks ago (probably during new student week) talking about what's the minimum number of coins you need to give exact change, and I thought I should share that.
- 3 quarters
- 1 dime
- 2 nickels
- 4 pennies
Which is not too bad at all to carry around, compared to, say, a Moleskine notebook.
