My boyfriend is an inveterate penny purger. He just throws them in the garbage! This wounds me in my penny-pinching soul. So, a year ago I made him a bank from a 1 lb coffee can and insisted that he use it. The deal was, if we could dine on the worth of the contents, he would cease his wasteful ways.
Well, the can is nearly full and tonight we have a dinner date with the coin machine. But where will we eat? Will we be dining off the Taco Bell Value Menu (as he insists)? Eating at the taqueria? Or ordering appetizers, margaritas and flan to go with our fine sit down Mexican meal?
