A few were technically issued in 1787 by a private mint, but they didn’t start rolling out of the US Mint until April 1, 1793. National One Cent Day commemorates the introduction of America’s smallest unit of currency. It’s a chance to delve into the rich history of American currency, but also an opportunity to examine how we spend our money.

Pennies gave us a new way to measure savings and we ought to take advantage of it. As Benjamin Franklin is credited with saying, “A penny saved is a penny earned.”

Saving pennies can be a tricky proposition,, especially when considering your household expenses. Do we cut back on gas? Groceries? Streaming services? Though these are all items worth considering, it’s likely the biggest hole in your budget isn’t where you spend, but where you don’t.

For instance, your homeowners insurance protects you from accidents, disasters, and theft. But what about normal wear and tear? If there’s a problem with your heating, cooling, or electrical system, you’ll be left holding the bill. And repairing them isn’t cheap.

Fixing your furnace, air conditioner, or electrical wiring can cost hundreds or even thousands of dollars. And repairs like this can happen at any time. One breakdown can upend your monthly finances, saddling you with debts that might take ages to pay off.

But where insurance leaves off, Agway shines. Our EnergyGuard™ program protects you from these types of unexpected expenses. For the cost of a few pennies in the short-term, you have a lot of protection in the long-term.
