Sweater: LOFT ($15) // Jeans: Target ($12) // Scarf: Gift from Micah // TOMS
I've seen a lot of people in scarves lately. I, honestly, never left the house without one in Alaska. This is the first I've worn here. It was about 70* on Saturday, so it was fitting.
We'd always avoided Coinstar in favor of banks because banks, when cashing your change, don't steal 10% of your money. However, a friend told us that now Coinstar gave gift certificates instead of cash if you wanted and there was no service charge.
I took our giant change jar to Wal-mart. Actually, I double-plastic-bagged the change. I didn't want to be walking around with an empty jar.
So I put in the change, and I looked at my options for gift certificates. We'd been planning on, you know, a WAL-MART one because that's what our friend said he got. But no. Apparently they rotate the options. My options included: Southwest airlines (I've never been on one of their planes), an online X-box store (we do not allow video games around here...it's a personal rule I have), Chili's, Applebee's, and Starbucks. The last time we'd been to Chili's was in Alaska, and the last time we went to Applebee's was in Montana.
We are now the owners of a very large Starbucks gift certificate.
Really. I'll be saving money.
