Found Three Pennies at Fresh and Easy

Today I went to Fresh and Easy and as soon as I started walking to the store, I spotted a penny in the middle of the parking lot where the cars drive. I picked it up, then I glanced to one side and spotted another penny between two cars. Yay!

As I was walking up to get a shopping cart, in the little fenced in area, I saw another penny on the pavement! Woo hoo! 

Have you found any money recently?

Found a Quarter at the Post Office

Today I went to the post office to mail some packages. When it was my turn to be waited on, I walked up to the counter and spotted this quarter on the floor right by where I had to stand! I wonder how many other people stood there, mailed their letters and packages, and didn't see it and left. I imagine quite a few.

I think being at the right place at the right time is important but so is looking down. After all, coins and bills have to deal with gravity like everything else.

I then went to the library and the grocery store but didn't find any more money. 

I snapped this picture of the found money quarter next to Scarlett when I got home. She was neither impressed nor unimpressed. Basically, she doesn't care about money. Just about treats and food. I got her a new bag of treats (turkey flavor); she was pretty excited about that.

Found 21 Cents While Out and About

Today I went to the dollar store. I walked in and spotted a dime on the floor! I scooped it right up! Then I took a few steps and saw this penny! Nice! 

I was happy finding 11 cents, but then I went to the library to pick up this book to read (can't wait to start it!). In the library's used book sale area, I found another dime! Yay!

This makes five days in a row that I've found money! I hope I can keep the streak alive. Have you found any money recently?

Found 3 Cents in Fresh and Easy Parking Lot

Today I ran over to Fresh and Easy for a few things. On the way out, I spotted these three pennies next to the tail end of a car parked across from me. Yippie!

I posed them next to this thimble flowerpot I made. I wrote an article Thimble Crafts the other day, if you'd like to check it out.

So, today makes day number four that I've found some money. Four days in a row! What about you? Have you found any money recently?

Stormed Last Night, Found a Penny Today

Today I got up and took out my recycling. It stormed here last night and I wanted to see if there was any damage. I mean, it crackled and roared for more than an hour around 1 a.m. We don't get weather like that often here in the desert.
 
I didn't see any damage but I did spot a penny in the parking lot! Things are looking up! I've found some money three days in a row.

Took a Walk, Found Eleven Cents!

Today I went for a walk! Yes, I told myself that if the temperature was lower than 100, I'd go walk. It was 84! So, I didn't walk far, a few blocks, but it felt good to get outside and move a little.

In front of my complex, I found this dime! Then inside, in the parking lot, I found the penny. hot dog! These little round thing are flat round thumbtack type things. I thought they'd look lovely posing with the found money.

Found a 1962 Penny in the Parking Lot

Earlier today, I ran some errands and when I got home, I found a set of keys in front of a dumpster. I set them beside the bank of mailboxes. 

Just now I went out to get the mail and the keys are still there. So, I decided to walk around the parking lot to see what else I could find. I found this penny!

Found a Penny in the Fresh and Easy Parking Lot

Today I headed out despite the high temperature predicted to be 112. Ugh. I hate summers in Phoenix. Anyway, I went to the post office, the library, then to my son's house. I took brunch. Bacon, waffles, fried potatoes, peaches, and grapes. Yum! Then I went to get my hair cut, but I didn't find any money. 

Then I went to Fresh and Easy. When I got out of my car, I spotted this penny in the parking space next to my car. Yay! I brought it home and took this photo of it. Yes, I support Obama, but I'll be really glad when the election is over and done.  My sister gave me this bookmark 4 years ago.

Found a Penny at Sonic

Today I had a mail a letter so drove up and first took a picture of a sign I saw yesterday but I didn't have my camera handy at the time. Here's a link to it on RedGage. It's pretty funny, I think. Clever for sure.

 So, after I took the photo, I went to the post office, then drove to Sonic. I had a coupon for a $.49 milk shake. That's my kind of price! So, I parked my car and got out. Turns out you can't go inside to order but there is a machine to order out in front of the store. Personally, I don't like the car hop business. 

While out there, I spotted this penny! Yay!

I sure don't find as much money in the summer since I stay in most of the time and the past week has been a dry spell. I was glad to spot this little guy! I think he looks so nice with the peaches and pears.
