Found 30 Cents But Only Brought Home 29 Cents

Today I sold some patches on Etsy so I had to run to the post office. I found a penny in the rocks just outside the post office!

Then I hit a Goodwill because it's half off day and I was already out and about. I found a penny on the floor near a cash register!

I walked over to Fry's, which is in the same shopping center, to get some fruit. I found a quarter on the floor near the self-checkout registers, a penny in the bakery area, and a penny near the cheese! 

This was a banner day! It really pays to go where people are! 

But a disappointing thing happened:  I actually saw another penny in the street, but it was stuck in the hot tar. From experience, I know better than to try to get those. Those coins are a goopy, sticky mess. So, I found 30 cents, but I only brought home 29 cents.

Have you found any money lately?
