That's a really good idea for how to help the situation.
Yup - seems like a win, win, win! Especially with those smaller businesses that have to take a hit with each charge.
That article explained things very well, thank you! I understand the reasons a lot better now.

Thanks for looking that up for me!
This was very interesting information. Thanks for sharing your thoughts about this situation.
But if that was the case, it seems like there would be a shortage of all cash, paper bills included.
But there were a lot of coins already in circulation. It's weird that all of them would just suddenly disappear.
Actually that's because they're not used. Think about how few things cost less than a dollar. So because they have so little value and it's a pain to actually use them people just throw them in a jar or something removing them from circulation.
Lol you're right. I missed a perfect opportunity!
I'm sure you're right. All the change in jars and under couch cushions adds up! I wouldn't be surprised if that amount was in the millions.
Someday Jj, a Paperless society. xx
Some day but I do think one day that might happen... Sustainability is a real thing
Wow, so the laundromat didn't even have quarters in their change machine? I'm really surprised to hear that.
No, we have coin-operated laundry rooms at our apartment complex
But if that was the case and no one was using coins, it seems like there would be more of them, not less.
Most stores have a sign at the register stating that there's a national shortage of coins, so they can only accept exact change from people who are paying with cash.
