My new favorite thing

When I go to the grocery store, Albert Heijn, it costs 50 cents to get a shopping cart. Of course you get your coin back, but the point is, you need to have the right coin with you all the time or else you can't get a cart. Well, I developed a system where there was always a 50 cent piece in my jacket pocket, but what happens when I'm wearing a different jacket?

So, the other day I went to the counter to break 1 Euro into two 50 cent coins and the lady handed me this key chain. Brilliant! Now I'll always have this thing with me and always be able to get a cart! Why am I only learning about this thing now and I've lived here for almost 4 months???

Just another piece of evidence proving that the Dutch are far smarter than Americans... : )

That's so smart! I wish I'd had this when I lived in Germany.
