Found a Penny at the Post Office

Found 6 Cents in the Street

Today I ran a lot of errands (if you can call hitting half off day at two Goodwill stores errands). On the way to the second one, I was stopped at a stoplight and spotted the nickel on the street. It was right by my car so I checked to make sure the cop car that was stopped at the previous red light wasn't around, then I hopped out and while I was picking up the nickel, I saw the penny! Yay!!!

I had plenty of time to get back in the car and buckle up before the light turned green.

I found the fun pillowcases (floral and fish) and the snowman kitchen towel at one Goodwill. So cute. Not sure what I'm going to do with them. Maybe use the pillowcases to make some tote bags. The fabric is very pretty! And Mr. Snowman will have kitchen duty the entire month of December.

What about you? Have you found any coins or bills lately?

Found Two Cents in the Parking Lot

This evening a friend called so as we were talking, I took the trash out. It was almost sundown so cooler outside. I walked around the parking lot and look what I found. Yep, two pennies! These bad boys must have been there awhile because I can't read the date or really anything on either one of them. 

Finding these two pennies while just walking around the parking lot makes me wonder how many coins are out there, just waiting to be found. Have you looked for coins outside around your house lately?

What about you? Have you found any money these days?

Dollar Tree Found Money

I volunteered today at Learning Ally then went to the Dollar Tree for a few things. I was cruising the aisles trying to find rolls of brown packaging paper. I couldn't find it any where. But I did spot this penny! So I snatched it up. I asked two clerks, who pointed me in the wrong direction.

So, finally I gave up and decided I'd have to go to one of those stores that charge--gasp!--more than $1 for things. I gave it one more shot and asked the cashier. He said, yes, they had it and told me where it was. So, I paid for what I'd already picked out then went to find it. Could I find it? No. I went back and told him. He had to close his lane so I stood there waiting. While I was standing up front, I spotted this dime! Yay!

He showed me exactly where the "mailing center" was. I'd walked by it at least twice. So, I got what I needed after all and found eleven cents!

Do you shop at dollar stores? If so, which one's your favorite? Have you found any money there (or anywhere) lately?

Found a Penny at Fresh and Easy

I stopped at Fresh and Easy today and found this penny when I was checking out. I used the self checkout lane and it was sitting by the bags.

I had been coloring earlier with my grandson who came to visit over night. I'm pooped. I think I'll veg tonight. Watch The Amazing Race, Desperate Housewives, and tonight's the season finale of Breaking Bad. Can't wait to see that one!

Have you found any money lately?

Found a Penny at the Taco Bell Drive Through

I mailed a few things today and decided to hit Taco Bell on the way home. I can't remember when I'd had a taco from Taco Bell. At the drive through I had to open my door to pay the cashier (yeah, I'm short and a bad drive). What did I see? Yep, this penny!

I had to take a picture of it home since I didn't have my camera with me. By the way, the tacos were delicious! I also had an apple since I don't think the sprinkling of lettuce could be considered even half a serving of vegetable.
