Hold the Phone! I Found a Dollar Bill!

Today I did it! I found a dollar bill!

Here's what happened:  I was running errands (what else do I do?).

First, the library to return an overdue DVD and some books.

Then to Papago Park in Tempe to check it out then review it for ParkGrades.

Then to Penzey's to buy some bay leaves and vanilla (I had a coupon for $5 off $10 or more).

Then to Michael's (had another coupon).

Then to Fresh and Easy in Scottsdale (not my normal one). Walking in I spotted a dollar bill on the sidewalk right in front of the doors. I think someone leaving must have dropped in. They probably got money back and didn't realize they'd dropped it. Or someone left it there for me. I don't know but it's mine now! 

Oh! I also found a nickle in the parking lot when I went to Penzey's and Michael's. I parked in the middle and walked to each store. AND at Fresh and Easy as I was using the self-checkout lane, I spotted a dime in the change dealie bob! I found the button somewhere along the line.

What about you? Have you found any money lately?
