Still using nickels and cents to get rid of them since I spent the first six months of 2014 using just dollars. I did this to get the most change possible and now I have too much. Instantly I noticed my change finds almost stopped but I managed to find a new nickel.
Getting "nickel and dimed" is the term used when you get charged a few cents more for the same product or service. The potential new plastic bag tax would raise the cost of an existing product without a reduction of store item prices even though the cost/burden of plastic bags would no longer be a factor in the owners business. It makes corporations millions in extra profit and cost consumers hundreds of dollars. For the poor it makes them worse off and make rich people all the more richer. #end_of_rant
