JACKPOT!

I went to the grocery store today and had to make some copies. I was there several minutes since the first copy I made was useless. I'd put the paper in the wrong spot and had to make another copy to figure out how that particular copier worked. As I was finishing up my copies, I glanced at the coin change machine next to the copy machine. Now, I had been there, like I said, for several minutes and no one else was around.

The tray at the bottom of the coin machine was full of change! I looked around, making sure I was at a grocery store and not a casino! Nope, it was a grocery store. Since I live by the finders keepers, losers weepers motto, I scooped up the change and finished my shopping. Talk about jackpot!

I finished my shopping, checked out, and headed home. The grand total:  $8.42! This is certainly more found money than I'd found all year. Till now, I'd only found $1.22 so this little motherlode brings the grand total to $9.64. Woo hoo!

And no, I'm not going to break down the denominations of the coins like I usually do. I'm a glutton for punishment but I'm not stupid.

Found Penny and Coleman Sandals

I went to Big 5 Sporting Goods today because they had an ad for $14 sandals. That's my kind of price. So, just inside the store, I found this penny on the floor.

And I found these sandals. I didn't even know Coleman made sandals but as often as I buy footwear, that should be no surprise. Anyway, on the other side of the little tag, it reads:  This Coleman footgear is developed to enhance performance and enjoyment of both the great outdoors and everyday life.

Let the enhancement begin!

Hard Hat Harry and a Penny

I had a few visitors the past couple of days. My daughter and grandson stayed over night, and we went to the library then to the grocery store. Right behind the rear tire at the store was this penny. 

We watched this Hard Hat Harry, 2 exciting adventures, rescue adventures and police cars! DVD that we got at the library several times. You know how that goes with a 3 year old! Good ol' Hard Hat Harry. Good times.

A Nickel Makes Fifty

Found a coin--a nickel--which makes the fiftieth coin I've found this year!

I went shopping for a new fridge at the Sears Outlet store but didn't see anything I wanted (read:  cheap enough to counteract the $69 delivery fee). I knew I could get a brand new Frigidaire elsewhere for about the same or less with free delivery so decided to hit Fresh and Easy before going home. As I was checking out, I spotted this nickel on the metal rolling bars on the end of the conveyor belt.
