Found Two Cents

Today I ran to Carl's Jr. and found a penny in the street and a penny on the floor. Yay!

Today I've been culling some my old books that I've collected through the years. I can remember looking at library books sales, thrift stores, and estate and garage sales and finding these. 

And even though I really like some of them, I don't need them. I never look at them any more, so it's time for them to go to a new home. Check them out on Etsy, if you'd like.
Denomination:  2 pennies

Found 23 Cents Today but Only Have 22 Cents

This morning I had to run to the post office. After I left there, I found a penny in the street then a dime in a parking spot. I was thrilled, and then I found another dime at the grocery store, but somewhere between there and home I lost the penny! Man! That is the first time in 5 years of my found money collecting for this blog that that's happened! Shoot.

But this evening I took a walk and found two pennies in the street, so today I actually found 23 cents but can only claim 22 cents for my blog.

Oh, and see the stick in the photo? I found that last night on a short walk. I wrote a little article about it here. Someone is modeling them... Check it out!

Today I ran a couple of errands and I found three pennies.

UPDATE:  I found a penny just now while out taking a walk. Yes sir!

Found 3 Silver Coins This Evening

I just went to the grocery store and while out I found 3 silver coins. Well, they're silver colored, not all silver but that's okay.

I'm listing this vintage terrycloth tablecloth for sale on Etsy. It'll be up there in a bit.

Found a Mess of Pennies Today!

I ran a few errands today and found a mess of pennies. Here's where:
  • 2 in my parking lot
  • 5 next to a trash can in front of a store
  • 1 on the floor of the thrift store
  • 2 in the library parking lot
  • 1 in a random parking space
  • 3 in the grocery store parking lot
Yay! I just love days like this when I keep spotting money. I wish some had been silver but 14 cents is just fine with me!

Oh and see that key? I found that today, too. It's a pocket knife! I found some of these pocket knife keys on Amazon in case you don't find one of these and you want one, too.
