George Zimmerman is cooling his heels in jail, where he recently purchased a collection of items from the Seminole County jail store to help pass the time.

The Miami Herald recently tweeted a photo of a receipt from Zimmerman's $79.84 purchases that included playing cards, puzzle books, and Jolly Rancher candy.

Zimmerman also bought socks, a debit card for phone calls, Ivory soap, underwear, beef sticks, t-shirts, deodorant, chocolate cookies, and one orange. The purchase left $41.36 on Zimmerman's account.

Zimmerman, 28, has been charged with second-degree murder in the shooting death of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin.
