3 Days, 27 Cents

The past three days have been okay as far as finding money goes. Not great, but okay. 

Sunday I found 15 cents (10 pennies and a nickel) plus a 5 cent Euro coin! As usual, I won't count the Euro in my found money total.

Monday I found just 4 pennies.

Today I found 3 pennies and a nickel.

I found this money at a gas station, a car wash, parking lots, in the street, and on the floor of a store.

Have you found any money lately? Please share your tales of found money with us!

Found Money Blog: 3 Days, $1.30 Found

Over the last 3 days I've found a bunch of coins. Here's what and when:

  • Thursday, August 6:  73 cents
  • Friday, August 7:  11 cents
  • Saturday, August 8:  46 cents

Coins of note include a penny that was stuck in the tar in a parking lot. I used my car key to pry it free. Of course one side of it has a big glob of tar on it, but it's good enough for my found money jar!

This $1.30 pushes my 2015 found money total over the $60 mark for the year! Woo hoo!!!

Check out this cool bank. It has three compartments:  spend, save, share. I love this idea for kids (and adults) to divvy up that money appropriately.

Found $2.19 in 4 Days

Today is the last day of July (and there's a blue moon tonight!). The past four days I've found quite a bit of money:

  • Tuesday, July 28:  $1.85 plus a Romanian coin
  • Wednesday, July 29:  17 cents
  • Thursday, July 30:  13 cents
  • today, Friday, July 31:  4 cents

That's a total of $2.19! Woo hoo! I found this money in the usual places:  in the street, on the store of a floor, in parking lots, in a change tray at the grocery store, at a gas station, and other spots I've forgotten.

One penny I found in the street is folded over! It's the coin on the left in the photo.

The coin from Romania looks like a penny but reads 5 Bani, Romania 2011. This coin is under the folded coin, on the left bottom.
