Found a Penny on the Sidewalk

It's chilly here today (high of 57, so not as chilly as many other places), but I decided to take a little walk. As I was walking along the sidewalk, not even 5 minutes into my walk, I spotted a penny on the sidewalk! It was over by the grass and am surprised I saw it.

Then I found two aluminum cans. I've been carrying a tote bag with a plastic bag inside and picking up cans when I see them. My trunk is full of bags of cans, so it's time to head to the recycling center soon.

  1. Today, January 1, 2013, I found a nickel
    (2001P) and put it in the jar. Stepped out of my car at a store and there it was by the back tire. What a way to start the new year! I like your blog...spider4041

  2. Great! I went for a walk today but didn't find any money. I did see three really pretty peacocks though! Happy New Year!

  3. It is 2 days in a row for me! Found a penny today leaving the public transportation station on the way home from work. I spotted it hiding over by the wall as I was passing by - it almost blended in with the floor. So I stooped down and picked it up. Penny (1995? - really dinged up and hard to tell the date). Total for 2013 $0.06....spider4041

  4. Have you found any money lately? I found another penny today (1989). That is $0.07 for 2013! ...spider4041

    1. You're definitely beating me this year so far! I found a penny yesterday so at least that's something!
