Another 2 cents

Today at the grocery store I found 2 more cents! Both were face down, so that's how I photographed them once I got home. I found one penny in the store on the floor by the Starbucks and the other in the parking lot by my car.

You know? The found money jar is actually starting to feel heavy!

And while I'm at it, I just wanted to let you know I added a banner to my blog that you can click to help rescue animals. Thanks!

2 cents!

Went to Safeway today. Found 2 cents! Yay! The first one was by the coin machine where you can dump your change in. It was the 2009 penny. Very shiny. I can't believe someone didn't see it before me, but then maybe someone just dropped it. It was one of the new ones with the fancy design. Mr. Lincoln was standing up on the back of it. The second one was in the checkout aisle! Ta da!

The Motherlode!

Today I finished a volunteer mediation training program then ran some errands since we got out by 4 p.m. So, I went to the post office to mail my sister's birthday card (sorry, Kay, it's gonna be late) and a book I sold on Amazon. When I was leaving, I spotted a dime on the lobby floor! Woo hoo!

The next stop was the library, which netted some good DVDs and a book but no money. On to the grocery store. I was completely out of cash and picked up a few things. In the parking lot, guess what I found? A NICKEL! Hot dog!

Here's a picture of Scarlett and the dime and nickel on the coffee table. Fifteen cents in one day!!! This is indeed a banner found money day. Better even than the 13-cent day I had in January!

Hot Penny

I've been cat sitting for two cute kitties, and today was the last day. So after I fed, watered, scooped, and petted, I figured since I was out, I'd run by Michael's. As I was leaving the store, I spotted this penny on the steaming hot asphalt. I quickly picked it up and shoved it in my pocket. Hotchie mama. The penny was a mess, all beat up but that's okay.

2 Pennies and a Lipstick Bar

Okay, I had to return some books and DVDs to the library and decided to just go ahead and run some errands even though it was almost 100 degrees out. I do have to leave the house between now and September, once in awhile, I guess. So, first I went to Goodwill because it was on the way. That and it was half off day. Half off on all the junk for sale! And I found a penny! And this lovely lipstick bar!


How cool is that? Of course, I only own one tube of lipstick, which I never wear, and this puppy has six slots so I think I'll sell it on Etsy.

Then I went to the library that felt so cool I really kind of hated to walk back to my car even though it was in covered parking so knew it wouldn't be boiling hot. Then I stopped at the grocery store on my way home. Found another penny! Wee doggies!

And both pennies are the new 2010 pennies with the new design on the back with the shield instead of that building. Go figure! What building is that anyway?! Just checked. It's the Lincoln Memorial.

Year:  both 2010
