A Great Quote About Persistence

Courtesy of the 30th president of the United States...

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education alone will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent." 

--Calvin Coolidge

Cash in your change at Walmart without paying a fee

So I had $25 worth of pennies/nickels and dimes today and wanted to figure out how to cash it in without paying a 10% fee to Coinstar. Here's a life hack for you: scan something at a Walmart self-service checkout that you have no intention of buying (and costs more than the amount of change you have.) Deposit all of your change into the self-service checkout. Once it's all in, touch the "cancel" button and the machine will give you back the largest bills and coins possible. All cashed in, no fee.

You can also use the MoneyPass ATM to load a Walmart gift card for free, if you know exactly how much change you have before you start. 

Cash in that change without a fee!
