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!

Whoops, Long Time, No Post!

So, I see that it's been nearly a month since I last posted here. Whoops! I have found money but I've been busier than a one-armed paper hanger. Busy with work, busy with friends and family, just plain busy.

Anyway, here's what I've found since my last update:

$2.45 in change. This includes all denominations:  pennies, nickels, dimes, and quarters. No bills but that's okay. Tonight I took a short walk and found a dime.

I watched a really good movie recently: The Age of Adaline. Have you seen it? What did you think?

Found Money: 58 Cents

Well, it's been somewhat of a dry spell for finding money. In the past few weeks since I last posted here, I've only found 58 cents. Today I found 8 of those cents, 8 pennies on the floor of stores and in a drive through lane.

The other money, a quarter, a dime, and the rest pennies were found in the typical places. 

How about you? Are you finding money these days? Let us know!

Found $2.42 in 10 Days

In the past 10 days I found $2.42. Woo hoo! Most of this was in one day when I found six quarters in a change tray of a newspaper vending machine. That same day on a walk I found two dimes and two pennies. The rest has been found in a water vending machine, in parking lots, in a bank drive through lane, at gas stations, on the floor of stores. Really the normal places where I tend to find money.

It never gets old. What do you think? Do you look for money when you're out and about?

Found 80 Cents Since We Last Spoke

Okay, so we've never actually spoken, but since the last time you read this blog (and I wrote it) I found 80 cents. Ta da!

Today I stuck my finger in a  change slot of a newspaper machine and a nickel fell out and I felt another coin. A dime! 

Last week I drove to Tucson and stopped (a few times to use the little girls' room). In one truck stop place in the middle of no where I found a quarter on the floor. Whoopee!

Oh, for a few weeks now I've been working on this chair. It was an overstuffed chair that I stripped of its stuffing. It is now a proud planter! As the summer progresses and more plants are blooming, I'll post another photo or two. This was a pain the butt, a whole lot of work, but I really like how it looks!
