Finding Money Around Town

This past couple of weeks have been fairly average as far as finding money goes. I've found $1.22 since my last post.

The other day I ran some errands and found coins (still no paper money found this year... grrrr) just about everywhere I went!

Today I ran several errands and what did I find? Nothing. 

How about you? Have you found any money lately?

Found $1.11 and Happy Thanksgiving


Since I last posted, I've found $1.11 in change.

Not terribly exciting but just now, I was out running errands and I went to three stores. In the parking lots, on the floor of stores, and in a change tray of a newspaper vending machine I found 32 cents (2 each of pennies, nickels, and dimes). 

There's a lot of money just lying around out there. Have you found any lately? Please let us know and have a happy Thanksgiving!

Finding Money: $1.36 This Time

Well, it's been a while since I last posted here but I kept telling myself I'd post when I'd found more money. Since it was literally trickling in a penny or dime at a time, I figured, oh well, just post.

I've found $1.36 since my last post. Yep, that's it. Today I had to run to Walmart because I was out of tissues. And seeing as I have bronchitis and am hacking and coughing and basically miserable, I had to get more tissues.

In fact, I had to get this stuff, too:






But I did find a dime near a check out stand. The highlight. And I'm feeling slightly better, which is good.

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!
