I found a dollar bill on the floor of the dollar store last week! It was just lying there next to the little candy vending machines. No one was around so I walked over and at first thought it was a piece of paper crumpled up. But when I got closer I saw it was a dollar. Woo to the hoo!!
Here's a photo of Mister Tom checking out the found money for the week.
And in addition to the dollar bill, this week I also found my first foreign money of the year. I found a coin from Tanzania!
PLUS I found another dollar and 42 cents in change! So that makes this found money total $2.42 (plus the Tanzania coin, which I don't count in my found money total).
I looked up the Tanzania money and found this info:
Brass plated Steel – 9 g – ø 24.5 mm
KM# 32, Schön# 35
I checked this website and the coin is worth... wait for it... 4 cents US. But that's okay because I'll probably give it to my grandson who collects foreign coins. He can add it to his collection.
So, I was thinking about the money I've found so far this year. More than $2 each week. That means if this keeps up I'm on track to find $100 (or more) this year. Woo hoo! We'll see how long the two dollars a week holds up.
Have you found any money lately? Please let us know.
