Found 2 Nickels at Fresh and Easy

Today as I was checking out at Fresh and Easy, I found these two nickels in the change tray. Woo hoo! Why do people leave money?

I've decided these might be some of the reasons:

  • I forgot it.
  • I didn't know I had change coming.
  • I don't do change.
Why do you think people would leave 10 cents behind?

Dime in the Driveway

On my way to the library today to return two movies I didn't watch, I found this dime in the driveway. This pushes my found money total for the year over the $10 mark! This is still a pittance when I hear about others who find paper money, and big paper money at that. Oh well, better than nothing is my motto.

Have you found any money lately?
