Do you stop and pick up a penny when you see one on the ground? I do and am not too proud to admit it. I was taught as a young child to value every penny and I still do that today.
Every once in a while I read that the Government is complaining that it costs more to make a penny than 1 cent in production expense. They want to discontinue making pennies altogether. I am so against that idea. I don’t want everything to cost a multiple of 5.
If there are no pennies then we either pay with nickels or dimes, and of course that will mean that we end up paying more, because everyone will round up the prices. Nobody but WalMart ever rolls back prices willingly.
