Found 15 Cents at Two Shopping Centers

This morning I had a screening for a drug study and on the way home, I stopped at a grocery store for a few things. On the way out, I spotted a penny on the sidewalk!

Then I stopped at another shopping center where I've found some money before. I didn't need a thing there, just moseyed around looking for coins. I'm glad I did! I found two pennies in a drive through lane, a penny on the sidewalk, a dime in a parking space, and another penny in the parking lot. 

I just love finding money! I posed them next to some skull earrings I made. I'll take these to a gift shop today or tomorrow.

This evening I took a walk and found myself just a block away from a gas station, so I trotted up there. Glad I did! I found 5 pennies all together under a window wash receptacle then I found another penny in front of a gas pump.

Found 8 Coins Today

This evening I walked to Sprouts for their double ad Wednesday sale. I found a few things, mainly black grapes for 69 cents a pound. Yummy! On the way there, I found a nickel in my parking lot, a penny in the street, another penny standing up in a crack in the gutter, and a dime in the street.

Then I shopped.

As I was leaving the store, I found a penny in the track of the door, then another penny beside a water vending machine, a penny beside a car in the parking lot, and finally another penny in a drive-through lane.
