Do you mean by choice, or are you living somewhere that's gone 'penniless'?

A lot of privatly owned buissness near me have started rounding to the nearest 5 or 10¢. I find no problem in dropping pennies or even nickles and having everything to the nearest 10¢.

 

I would NOT want tax added to the price before purchase. Gas is the one thing that they do post the price including tax [to the nearest 10th of a cent:smileylol:

 

Boy the groups are wackey today. When I hit the Smiley-LOL icon it included the quote from the OP. I deleted it, finishe the sentence and added another paragraph. When I post the quote is back and the rest is gone. Not importent enough to recreate at this time. And I also see all my spelling corections were lost. I can't even spell check this. It find the misspeled words but doesn't replace them even when I chose replace!

Canada is getting rid of one cent coins.  (They don't have two cent coins either.)

 

I hear that Australia, New Zealand, Denmark and Norway have all done this a while ago.  So how did it go for you?  Or if you live somewhere that still has pennies or the equivalent and  you've never thought about it before, what do you think of the idea?

My husband has been replugging (not sure if that's the correct term) shaving brushes, both for himself and friends, and he uses pennies in the handles to add weight and get the desired depth for the hair.

Circumstance more than choice.  Most of my purchases are in the values where digital is more convenient than carrying around that amount of cash.

Heh. Last night DH and I had to remember to swing by the ATM on the way home... don't know why our darned babysitter can't accept plastic like everyone else. :smileywink:

D*mn skippy.  Paypal is sending me their credit card swiper for my phone.  Now that's progress! 

Right on about the VAT too.  I hope they never pass that here.  Idiots in every government...
