Finding Money Here, There, and Everywhere

Late this afternoon I found some money at a grocery store (3 pennies) then later at a high school parking lot (a dime, a nickel, and a penny). So, that made 19 cents found today. I just love finding money!

Since I last posted, I've found 90 cents total. Better than a kick in the you-know-what.

Oh! I recently published a class on Skillshare called How to Make a Tin Can Man. Like that guy, right there.

If you'd like to check out my class, I have a few coupons for free enrollment. Just click this link: How to Make a Tin Can Man. But hurry, it expires tomorrow (Friday). This is an easy and fun recycle craft project.

How is everyone doing? Great, I hope. And I hope you're finding lots of money!

Found Money in the Street - Two dollars and change

So, I hope everyone is holding up. What with the election, Leonard Cohen dying, and a super moon tonight things have been, well, let's just say, weird.

Since I last posted I found $2.33. Not bad but not great. I won't hit the $100 mark for the year like I did last year since I've now found just $33.57. Oh well. 

I did find a Canadian penny though so that's good.

How about you? Have you found any money lately?

Found Money Blog: October Finders Keepers

So, I didn't realize it had been nearly a month since I last posted. My apologies! I've been busy and my found money pile didn't seem especially big so I kept delaying posting, I guess.

Any hoo, since September 20 I've found $2.53. Not great, but not bad. Better than nuttin' honey.

So, take a look at the photo to the right. See anything good there? Yep, a quarter! It was stuck on this little cover. I couldn't pry it up even using my car key. Dang. I really hate to find money and not be able to get it.

How about you? Did you beat me? Did you find a lot of money in the past month? I really hope so!

Oh, I also found several oddities with the coins I found:
  • a wheat penny, a 1939 penny!  
  • a folded over penny
  • a play coin, again, a penny
  • a carwash token
  • a Canadian 5 cent coin
I do love find this oddball stuff!

Not bad.

Found Money Blog: $2.07, a Pressed Penny, and a Wheat Penny

So, since my last blog post here I've found $2.08. That includes a wheat penny (1949) and a pressed penny (which I don't count in my found money total since I'm pretty sure can't be spent as legal tender since it's been flattened).

The pressed penny is stamped USS Midway CV 41 and features an American flag.

Yesterday I was driving and saw a penny and nickel in the street as I was leaving a shopping center. Instead of slamming on my brakes and getting the coins, I kept driving. Today I went back and darn if they weren't gone! You snooze, you lose, I guess.

This morning I helped with a roadside cleanup and found what I thought were two nickels in the road. NOPE! They were those weird flat batteries. Dang it!

Tourist Found Money

Lately I've been finding a lot of quarters and more change lying around on the floor of stores. I think it's from tourists in a hurry to beat the heat and go camping or hiking or whatever they're doing as they drive through town.

I've found several quarters  in various vending machines:  water vending machines and newspaper vending machines mostly. I've also found money on the floor of stores and in parking lots, etc. The usual places. 
So, since I last posted, I've found a bunch of change. $3.44 worth! That's pretty good for a couple of weeks' worth. I also found a Rwanda coin marked 50. Cool! This is the first time I've found a coin from that country.

Have you found any coins or bills recently? Do tell!
