No More Penny Pinching!

Yes, the day has come!



The Canadian penny has been taken out of circulation, as it costs more to make than it is worth!
So, everything will be rounded up or down.
I won't miss it!
Those suckers are heavy!
Does that mean I have to make another coin purse???
and take the penny off!
Or maybe it will become a collectors item. LOL!

I don't know. I will miss the penny since I do pick them up off the ground. Rounding down is nice. Rounding up, not so good.

Wow, that's a big step. I wonder when the US will do the same? And I wonder what I'll do then with my bottles of pennies?! :)

You have fabric with Canadian currency on it? How is that legal? Lol.

Well, now when I tell people I'm penniless, they will be, too. :-)

Yeah, I won't miss the penny either. I still have a $1.00 bill or two around but don't miss those either.

I saw a bathroom floor done in pennies, and they had copper fixtures. Very cool!

You will not miss them one bit. We gave them up here in Aus many years ago. Best thing we ever did. I really notice the difference when we visit the US and always seem to have mountains of them weighing down my purse.

I can't wait until the US gets rid of the penny!

What? The penny is gone? Yikes - I have piggy banks full of them in storage at home. Oh well.

No more 0.99 prices then, sales won't be the same anymore :)
