Isn't that why they put those nice little trays/drawers into the dashboard?

Which little trays/drawers? Some have change holders on the console,
in plain view.

My 99 Honda has a cute little change drawer above driver's left knee.
Didn't notice till I'd had the car for a year. Can't say I've ever
actually used it.

(Gets curious and goes and looks...)

Nope, there is a pack of fuses in there. Not sure why I would have done
that- car has never blown any that I recall. Maybe from when I added the
second power point or something.

The one at my local grocery store has gift certificate options, with
no fee for counting the coins. You can get a gift certificate for
Amazon.com, Itunes or JCPenney, and perhaps other places as well.
Last time I looked at the coinstar website (www.coinstar.com) there
was a list of which machines offer this option (not all do).

Right, I knew that (I recently cashed in $30 in quarters for an
Amazon gift certificate and got a $10 bonus certificate for
free). But that's not what Bev said. She said that the Coinstar
machines "here" have never charged a fee.
