Found 17 Cents at the Store and on a Walk

This morning I went to the grocery store since I was out of milk, fresh fruit and vegetables, you know the drill. Anyway, I found a penny on the floor as I was leaving the store.

Then later this afternoon I walked to Sprouts for their double ad Wednesday sales. On the way, I didn't find a plug nickel (nor a regular nickel or anything else), but on the walk home I found two pennies in the street, three pennies at a gas station, another penny in the street, a nickel in a drive through lane, and a nickel in a parking space in front of an Ace hardware store. 

A worker was out front and saw that I found some money, and we got to talking. He said, "It's always good to find silver money," when I told him I found a nickel. I agreed. Then he told me that one time he found a $100 bill! He was in line at a store and dropped a dollar bill and when he reached down to pick it up, he saw a bill folded into a tiny shape. He put it in his pocket and later unfolded it and saw that it was a $100 bill! 

So cool! The most I've found was a $20 bill once. How about you? What's the largest denomination of money you've found?

Found 3 Pennies Last Week

Last Wednesday I started a dog sitting job and on the drive there, I stopped at a gas station to use the little girl's room. In the parking lot, I found 3 pennies! 

I didn't find any more money while away and now that I'm back home, I'll try to get out and walk in the 'hood and see if I can find more coins and maybe even some bills!

Found 35 Cents on a Bike Ride Today

This evening I rode my bike to the post office to mail a bill. I meandered through just about every parking lot on the way and ended up finding 35 cents!

Here's where I found the money:

  • 10 pennies:  at a gas station near the vacuums, in a fast food restaurant parking lot, in a liquor store drive through, on the sidewalk, and in a parking space
  • 1 quarter:  a fast food drive through
So weird. Yesterday I found a quarter and another today. I rarely find quarters and I've found one two days in a row. I can't believe I've found almost $30 so far this year and it's not even half over. Yay!

Have you found any money recently? Please let us know!

This morning I went with a friend to breakfast then to a few stores. At an auto parts store I spotted something shiny between two display cases. A nickel and beside it a penny! Then in a parking lot I found another penny.

This afternoon I took a walk to the store and found 7 more pennies, 2 more nickels, and 2 dimes! I found these on the floor of the grocery store, in a coin machine, in a parking lot, next to an ATM. Yay!
