Found 14 Cents Today at the Grocery Store


Today I went to the grocery store and found 14 cents in the change tray! One of the pennies is an old wheat penny, a 1954 penny. The mint mark is S (San Francisco). I rarely find coins with the S mark.

I took my two grandkids to McDonald's after school and they found a ton of coins in the drive through at the first window where people pay. My granddaughter found 52 cents and my grandson 15 cents! I gave them each a quarter because I wanted one of the nickels she found. It was a 1954 just like the penny I found! What a coinky dink. 

Did you hear about Saturn's new moon? It's my namesake!

Broke My No Money Street -- Found 39 Cents


Today, despite the heat, I walked to the grocery store for some exercise and for a few things. On the way, I found a penny in the street. It was pretty beat up, but I don't care!

Then at Starbucks I found a quarter and a dime, then I found three more pennies on the floor at the grocery store! Yay! I picked up two of the pennies near the self-checkout registers when I entered the store. 

There was a third penny near a different register and a man was checking out. I left it and decided to see if it was still there when I was done with my shopping. It was! I was in the store for at least 10 minutes. It just amazes me that people walk right by money, even if it is just a penny.

I hadn't found any money for three days and was Jonesing for some coin!

I got this Dial 7 Day Moisturizing Lotion shown with my found money at the store. I've been so dry lately and it is really nice. Of course I tried a little in the store before buying it. I like the nice light scent and it absorbs really well. If you want to check it out yourself, you can see this product on Amazon. (Just click that bottle over there. See it? to the right? Yeah, that one!)

Found 22 Cents -- Found Money Blog for April 6


Today I went to the library to return a few books and pick up some on hold. I found a dime under the table near the printer. Yes, copies are 10 cents. Then I found two pennies and a dime in the parking lot of a fast food restaurant.

I posed the coins next to Garbie, this tin can man I made from a garbanzo bean can. He's for sale in my Etsy shop! You can visit him by clicking the link.
