Found a Mess of Pennies Today!

I ran a few errands today and found a mess of pennies. Here's where:
  • 2 in my parking lot
  • 5 next to a trash can in front of a store
  • 1 on the floor of the thrift store
  • 2 in the library parking lot
  • 1 in a random parking space
  • 3 in the grocery store parking lot
Yay! I just love days like this when I keep spotting money. I wish some had been silver but 14 cents is just fine with me!

Oh and see that key? I found that today, too. It's a pocket knife! I found some of these pocket knife keys on Amazon in case you don't find one of these and you want one, too.

Found 5 Pennies But Only Brought Home 2

Tonight I was able to go for another short walk since the weather is cooperating! I love that the worst of the heat seems to be behind us, at least for now.

So, on my walk I turned a corner and almost immediately saw something shiny in the street. It was round so I figured with luck it was a coin or maybe a washer or something else. Sure enough, it was a penny. An embedded penny. Then I walk on and found another. Then about half a block away, another. Dang! I was disappointed to say the least.

Then I was stopped at a corner and spotted two more pennies in the street. These were just sitting there though so I was able to pick them up and bring them home! Yippee!

Here's an article I wrote recently about the Old Town Scottsdale trolley in case you'd like to check it out.

Have you found any money lately?
