Vacation Found Money-- $1.82 in 2 Weeks

I just went on vacation to Illinois then drove to the east coast with two sisters. Along my travels I found money, of course!

In total I found $1.82:  4 quarters, 3 dimes, and 52 pennies.

I didn't write down all the places where I found this money but I traveled through 14 states and I found money in most of them.

I also found some miscellaneous stuff that I added to my little snack size bag. Particularly cute are the mini clothespin and a silver charm that reads "Life is tough but I am tougher."

Here is a photo of Liberty Enlightening the World (the Statue of Liberty's real name) from the ferry leaving Liberty Island after we'd visited her.

Found Money Blog: $1.48 in 5 Days

I'm slacking off here. I've been finding money but too lazy/busy/whatever to post each day. In the last five days I've found $1.48:
  • Tuesday:  66 cents
  • Wednesday:  2 cents
  • Thursday:  24 cents and a Canadian penny

I stacked the coins I found on the latest book I read. Finders Keepers by Stephen King is the follow up to Mr. Mercedes. Both novels are so good!

I just had to show this book because the title is my found money motto:  finders keepers!

  • parking lots
  • drive through lanes
  • change trays and grocery store floor
  • gas stations
  • sidewalks
  • convenience store

2 Days of Found Money Total $1.13

In  case you hadn't noticed, I've started lumping a few days of found money together sometimes. Today is one of those times. I just get busy and even though it only takes me a few minutes to add a blog post, well, some days I'm lazy or busy or whatever.

So, two days ago I found 2 pennies while out running errands. I can't remember where now but I found them and they're shown in the photo.

Yesterday I didn't find any money. *sad face*

Today I found a penny on the pavement beside my car at the library parking lot then later I went to the store and on my way back to my car, I found a dollar bill!!!!! and 5 pennies and a nickel! Yee haw!

So, that makes $1.13 found over the course of 2 days (or 3 days if you're counting the dud day). Yay!
