Found 26 Cents at the Grocery Store

Today I ran a few errands. First I went to the post office which had just a tiny little line. Ah, the difference a few days and one major holiday make. 

Then I drove over to the library but parked in the parking lot of Fry's, just a block away and walked to the library. I forgot the DVDs on the living room floor. They weren't quite close enough to the door when I left the house. Oh well. I'll return them next time I head out, but I know people are in line for Season 1 of Boardwalk Empire (it's very good!).

After picking up a book and movie at the library, I walked back to the grocery store. I just needed a few things but kept my eyes out for money on the floor because it seems like a prime spot to find money. I had to hit the produce section then cross to the other end of the store to get cat litter and when I went to check out, I saw a penny in one checkout lane then in the next lane, I saw the quarter! Both lanes were closed so I just scooted under the little gate thingie and picked up the coins. 

Keep your eyes out. Lots of shoppers out and about reaching into pockets for keys or whatever spilling money for you to find. Oh, and isn't the cat hanger adorable! This was a present from my sister. Thanks, MarySue!

  1. Actually you're right that it's the perfect time for found money. Many people are in such a hurry they don't bother to pick it up!

  2. Peggy, I lost, yes LOST $100 in a parking lot last week. All I can think is that some deserving person finds it , and uses it well.

    1. Oh no! I'm sorry. I hope a very deserving person found it, too!
