Found 94 Cents Two Days in a Row (Plus quite a bit more money!)



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!

How about you? Have you found any money lately?

Found Money Update: $2.39 plus a 5 cent Euro coin and a Canadian 1 cent coin

It's the last day of the month so it's time for a status of my found money. Since the last time I posted a few weeks ago, I've found $1.90 plus two foreign coins. I found a 5 cent Euro coin and a Canadian penny.

This takes me over the $20 mark for 2018's found money total.

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!

February Coming to a Close with $1.15 in Found Money

I know, I know, there are a few more days left of February but I poured the money I've found on to my desk earlier today to count it. I found 25 cents today while I was out running errands and it made my little ceramic bowl I keep the money in till I write another post look downright full.

So, in the week or so since I last posted I found a quarter, 5 dimes, a nickel, and 35 pennies for a total of $1.15.

I can't recall any of it being especially exciting this time other than yesterday I found 10 pennies all in one parking space in a parking lot. I always wonder why? Did someone dump them their? Did they empty an ashtray with the coins in it? Did they know? Did they not know?

I'll never know but they're mine now!

I Was Surprised Finding This Money

The past week plus I've found some surprising money. Just the other day in a coin machine change tray I found two Kennedy half dollars plus some other coins. Who just leaves those lying there? Well, someone did and I found them! 

I also found three foreign coins this time:  a British penny and two Canadian coins (a dime and a quarter). 

So, I found $2.37 total plus the foreign money, which I don't count.

I just love finding money so it's always a thrill. Have you found any money lately?
