    "I am writing to compliment your employees on a job well done. Bob was very responsive in returning phone calls from the initial contact we made to get preliminary estimates to finish our basement. The foreman was at our house almost every day for two-and-a-half weeks. His work was excellent. He finished everything on or ahead of schedule, left all of the work areas clean, and finished all of the small details to complete the job entirely. Due to the timeliness and quality of their work, we were able to enjoy our finished basement prior to the Thanksgiving holiday as promised."

    When I saw this article I thought it was a joke...just being honest. But when I read the many uses for all the spare change I had in my pocket, I was taken aback. Like all Americans, we collect a lot of change and seem to forget about it. Take a look at some of these great uses for coins:

    1. Hang a Cabinet Door

    Before fastening hinges to a cabinet, ensure there'll be enough clearance along the bottom for the door to swing freely by resting it on a nickel during installation.

    2. Tighten a Screw

    A dime is just the right width to drive a standard slotted screw, making it a thrifty stand-in for a flathead screwdriver.

    3. Space Tile

    When setting tile, place pennies on end between the corners of each piece for spacers that are easy to remove.
