I'd be worried that taxes would go up. A lot of taxes are in mills, or fractions of a cent. No doubt those would all be rounded up, not down. And I wonder if retailers would be willing to give up the last .9 they collect on every $2.99 item. As much as marketing gurus might tell them to hang on to the priced starting with a 2, I bet they'd all go up to $3.

As for my coins going into the trash -- that would only be by accident. When my purse starts getting notably heavier because of all the loose coins in the bottom, I scoop them out and dump them in a coffee can. One of these days, I'll take them to the nearest bank with a coin counter and get some bills.
