Found Money Totals $1.57 and a Canadian Dime

Since I last posted the end of September, I've found $1.67 in change. I also found a Canadian dime in a change tray of a coin machine.

Yesterday I found a quarter and a dime on the floor by a Starbucks in the grocery store. I found the rest of the money in all the usual places:  parking lots, change trays of coin machines and vending machines, floors of stores. The normal places.

Where do you find money?


And in case you were wondering, I still have found no paper money this year and things are winding down. Will I end the year finding no dollar bills or fives or tens? I sure hope not!

Nothing Is Constant but Change

I first saw this saying in a communications class in college. And I immediately loved it!

Nothing is constant but change. 

I found these fun shirts with the same sentiment. Cute!



When I saw this saying in college it was on a clear tote bag in pink or gold or neon green (some bright color) letters. 


And once again, my found money is all change. No paper money this year at all.

But since I last posted I've found $2.10. All in change. And that's okay! I love finding money!

Yesterday I was tickled; I found a penny, a nickel, a dime, and a quarter! That's rare to find one of each of these coins.
Have you found any money lately? Let us know please!

Found Money: $2.41 plus a $2 Euro coin found

So, here we are again. Time to report on my latest found money. Just $2.41 this time but for a couple of weeks, not too bad, I guess. 

The highlight of this found money (at least to me!) is the $2 Euro coin I found. It was in the change tray of a coin machine. I get it. The machine won't accept foreign coins but leave it there? Nope, I wouldn't! I have a little stash of foreign coins and my youngest grandson loves collected them too.

  And with the addition of this found money I have passed up what I found last year (2016). Yay! I still haven't found any paper money yet this year and it's kind of driving me nuts! Where are the dollar bills? The fives? The tens? The twenties?

Have you found any money lately? Let us know please!

A 2 Cent Euro Coin and $4.45 Found

The past few weeks I've found $4.45 and a 2-cent Euro coin. Not bad!

One place I found money was a little surprising. I went to our little government complex to renew my passport and saw a soda vending machine. I check just about every vending machine I walk past so this was no exception. I found 3 quarters! I had to go back the next day and I checked it again. Another 3 quarters! But since then I've gone back and nothing. Oh well.

Have you found any coins or bills lately? How much? Where did you find it? I still haven't found any paper money this year. I'm getting a tad annoyed about that.

I don't usually promote books here but a friend published her first book today! Check out Deidre Glass's novel, The Power of Water if you like fantasy and paranormal romance. I had the pleasure of reading this before it was published. It's good!

Found Money Blog: A Dime Blank on One Side, a Mexican Coin, and Lots of Coins

I found a fun coin about a week ago. It's a 1999 dime that's blank on the back side. The photo shows this coin in the very front of the picture. I found the one-sided dime in a change tray of a coin machine along with a handful of other coins. I don't get why people leave money behind. I guess so I can find it, is all I can figure.

So, I love my one-sided blank dime, but I also found a Mexican $1 coin! Yay! I also love finding foreign coins. And see the little Adidas token? I don't know what it was used for exactly but I found it in the same change tray as the dime, I think. I found the tiny little charm that is marked "hairzing" today in a parking lot. No idea what it is either but I can't leave junk on the ground. No way, no how.

Okay, I was curious. Evidently HairZing is a brand of hair products. Here are some of the HairZing combs:



       

So, along with these fun pieces I also found a lot of coins! The total is $4.57. Not a bad amount of found money for a few weeks.

Found Money Blog: $3.70 of Loose Change

So, since my last post (about three weeks ago) I've found $3.70. Not bad for taking the time to look at the ground mostly.

I can't think of anything terribly exciting about these pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters other than now they're mine! 

I found them in the typical places:  parking lots, change trays of vending machines, floors of stores, drive through lanes, etc.

I also found a 2014 California State Parks token for Pfeiffer Big Sur State Park. It's pretty cool. I looked online and didn't see much about these tokens. Maybe they're used at the park for various services.

      

I found these cool art deco posters of Big Sur. I love this style of art.

Have you found any coins or bills lately? Please let us know! Speaking of bills, I still haven't found any paper money yet this year. Shoot!
