What a Great Day for Finding Money!

Woo hoo, y'all! I ran a few errands today and I made a hauling! Here's what happened:

I parked in the Dollar Tree parking lot because from there, I can walk across the street to the post office, which is a pain to get in and out of. I got out of my car and walked around the parking lot a bit near the store and spotted a dime! 
I walked over to the post office and once inside in line, I spotted a penny on the floor. I picked it up.

I mailed my packages then walked up to the light to cross the street. I walked through the 7-11 parking lot and found another penny! Then I stood at the light to cross and as I stepped off the curb, I saw a penny in the gutter! So, of course I picked it up. I walked over to the Dollar Tree so danged proud of myself for finding 13 cents!

I went in the store and bought a few things (I needed tater chips; yes, I needed them.). I didn't find any money in Dollar Tree, which is a shame. It's usually a good place to find a coin or two. I left the store and walked around the parking lot a tad bit more and found another penny!

Yes, I found 14 cents! I posed them next to some pretties I'll be listing in my Etsy shop.

Have you found any money lately? I sure hope so. It always makes my day!
