Magnet Walk Nets Phoenix Woman a Penny and a Dime

Today I decided to get out and enjoy this cool weather. I grabbed my industrial strength magnet (that's it in the photo... it's a strong magnet on a stick. I love it!) and took off. I went down an alley figuring I'd get fewer stares. Well, turns out I also found tons of junk that way! I found tons of rusty nails and what not.

It's such a satisfying sound when a piece of metal clinks and attaches to the magnet. I found this penny next to a garbage can.

I kept going and kept finding stuff:  bottle caps, pieces of wire, part of a tiny saw blade, even a railroad tie and yes, the magnet picked it up! Then I found a dime next to another garbage can.

Note to self:  Check the ground around garbage cans for coins.

Any luck finding money for you?
