Found Money: 67 Cents

Since my last post over a week ago I've only found 67 cents. Not much but better than nothing. I found this money in the typical places:  on the floor at stores, in parking lots, drive through lanes, and even a penny in my driveway!

Found $1.00 in Two Weeks

Well, the past two weeks were lackluster for finding money. I only found a dollar in change. I went to Illinois to visit family and it was cold! I mean really cold. A few days it was tolerable then it went downhill fast. Some days the high was just 10 or something ridiculous. Ugh. It reminded me of why I moved!

So, here's what I found on the few days I ventured outside:

January 6:  37 cents
January 9:  42 cents
January 13:  1 cent
January 16:  16 cents
January 20:  4 cents

I found quite a few coins in five airports while traveling. The rest were in the usual places:  on the floor of stores, at a gas station, in parking lots. Often I would just stay in the car though because it was frigid!

I hope you're safe and warm and finding money.

Happy New Year! Found Money So Far in 2016

Happy New Year and I hope you're all finding some money this year. I am!

So far here's what I've found in 2016:

January 1: 62 cents
January 2:  47 cents
January 3:  48 cents
January 4:  49 cents
January 5:  38 cents

No, not 50 cents but I was hoping for a four-day streak! All of the coins were found in the normal places:  parking lots, floor of stores, drive through lanes, and the old standby:  here, there, and everywhere!

I also found a coin from Taiwan! I love finding foreign coins.

I Did It! I Did It! $100+ Found in 2015

Today I was on a mission.

As I mentioned in my last post, as of Tuesday, December 29, I had found $99.85 this year! I had to find 15 cents more to make it an even $100. Or more, of course!


Yesterday on my walk I found two pennies and a dime so that brought the year's total to $99.97. Not good enough! 

This morning I went to two thrift stores and three other stores and only found 1 penny in the parking lot in front of Big Lots. Ugh. So this afternoon I took my last walk of 2015. I went my regular route and didn't find a thing! Then as I was about to head home, I scouted out the McDonald's drive through and yep, there it was! I found 37 cents (two pennies, a dime, and a quarter). Whoopee!

So that brings my found money total for 2015 to $100.35! I'm tickled pink!

How about starting a found money challenge yourself for 2016? Here's a fun bank to help you know where that money should go. It helps kids learn about sharing, spending, and saving money.

Found Money: $1.68

So, this past week I found $1.68 in coins in the usual places:  parking lots, floor of a store, change trays of vending machines, drive through lanes. This brings my found money for 2015 to a total of $99.85! 

So, that means I'm only 15 cents away from $100 of found money for the year! Yes!!! I know in the next 2 days I can find that. Right? Right! 

I'm on a mission so will keep looking till I find it!

Found Money This Past Week: $1.18

The past week I've found money nearly every day. In total I found $1.18. Not a ton but this is moving me very close to breaking that $100 mark for found money in 2015. Will I do it? I really hope so!

In addition to the coins I found, I also found three foreign coins (2 Canadian 25-cent coins, a 20-cent Euro) and a car wash token. Score!

As you can see, it's lemon season here in Arizona. I made lemonade with my grandson today. Delicious!

Found 40 Cents This Week

Well, I didn't find a ton of money this week. Just 40 cents. But that's okay. Today my grandson and I took a walk and stopped to sit in a little pavilion. While sitting there, I looked down and saw a dime! Then we hopped up and he found a quarter and two pennies, and I found a penny. What fun!
