Found Money Alert! $2.56 Plus a Canadian Penny and a Car Wash Token



So, I have several stacks of coins on my desk and thought it was time to post about what I've found.


Since I last posted here, I've found a whopping $2.56 plus a Canadian penny and a car wash token. Yay! Isn't that a fancy car wash token with the brass center and silver outside? It's probably not brass and it's certainly not silver but it's pretty!

I found the car wash token in a coin machine change tray (where all the rejects go to live). It was there all by itself so I brought it home with me. What I can never understand is why people leave change (actual coins!) in those change trays but some of this money came from such places. Hmmm.

I found a 1941 nickel. I just checked Amazon and woo hoo. Check out how much they're selling one for. 

I just love finding the older coins. I need to sort through my stash and separate out the older ones to see if they're worth anything.

I also found money in all the usual places:  parking lots, floors of stores, drive through lanes, newspaper and water vending machines, and on and on. 

One day I was walking along in a parking lot and I kicked something. I heard it make a tinkling sound. I looked down and it was a penny! I can't believe I missed it but then found it because I kicked it. Go figure!

Have you found any money lately? If so, where did you find it? Anywhere fun or interesting or unusual? Do tell!

Lots and Lots of Coins Found - Where Do You Find Money?

Since I last posted a little over 2 weeks ago, I've been finding money right and left. And I love it!

In total I've found $5.29 the past 2 weeks! Just today for example I found a dime in a parking lot (along with several pennies here and there in other parking lots), 2 quarters in a change tray of a newspaper vending machine, a quarter and a penny in a drive through lane. That was 90 cents today alone! 

I also found a Canadian dime. Woo hoo. Love me some foreign coins!

The other day I spotted this dime in a store. It was tucked under the bottom shelf, and I almost missed seeing it. But I saw another coin (a penny) later in the same store in almost the same configuration. I think someone drops the coin and they roll along and land propped up like that against the edge of the wall or shelf.


Where do you find money? Do you ever find money that you almost missed seeing?

Got more money than you can count? Well, here you go!

The past two days I found 94 cents each day. What are the odds? Today I found 2 quarters in a newspaper vending machine coin tray and some more coins in a drive through and on the floor of a store.


I also found quite a bit more money since I last posted. In fact, I found $3.88 total this time. I just love finding money!

I also found a batting token (No Cash Value on the back), but it's cool anyway!

Finding Money... 36 cents just today!

Today I worked a booth at the business expo then I ran some errands. I did look on the ground and floor at the expo but didn't find anything. 

But later at the dollar store I found three dimes! Then later I found a nickel in a drive through lane. The penny? Don't remember but I think in the parking lot. 



In all since I last posted, I've found $1.54! Yay!

Here's what I found:

24 pennies
3 nickels
9 dimes
1 quarter,
a Peter Piper Pizza token
a 2012 1 piso coin from Republika ng Philipinas

I looked up the foreign coin and it's worth $0.019 (less than 2 cents). Here's the info from the Numista website.

But I still like to find foreign money!

Have you found any coins or paper bills lately? I'm itching to find more paper money!

Finding Coins Here, There, and Everywhere!

It's been several weeks since I last posted. I've been finding money, as the title says here, there, and everywhere!

I've found $1.75 since my last post. I also found two Canadian nickels! I thought that was odd, finding two of them and at different times and places. 

There isn't much exciting to report about this found money. I found it in the normal places:  on the floor of stores, in parking lots, in drive through lanes, in change trays of vending machines and coin machines, etc.


My kitty turned 2 yesterday! Here he is with his new Kitty Kong. I filled it with treats and then later with catnip. He likes it!

Finding Lots of Money Lately!



Okay, I know it's been a while since I last posted, but I just keep finding money and decided this evening it was time to stop hoarding these coins and post about them already!

Just today I found 62 cents while running errands. I just love finding money!! Do you? Have you found any lately?

I've been trying to eat better and recently got a Vitamix blender. Oh man, oh man, oh man. It is wonderful. Powerful and chops up stuff like nobody's business!! I haven't used it yet for soup, but you can make soup in this bad boy in something like 6 minutes! In the blender. Hot soup!

Do you have a Vitamix blender? Do you love it? What's your favorite thing to make with it? So far I've just made smoothies. Very smooth smoothies, I must say!


Back to my money... here is the pile of money I found since I last posted. $3.46! Yay!
