The boys rounded up all the loose change in the house and fed it to the coinstar machine.
Then they each picked non perishable food to donate to the food pantry. Alex got four boxes of cereal. David got a bottle of tomato juice and a 28 oz can of green beans. Tom picked a jar of applesauce and a jar of peanut butter and I threw in two boxes of macaroni and cheese.
I ordered this sampler from Road Runner Sports. The description wasn't as clear as I'd like as far as the flavors so I thought I'd spell it out for anyone who is wondering. It's definitely a bargain but if you can't tolerate a certain flavor you wanna know what you'll get.
