- I went to Goodwill, shopped, paid money, but didn't find any money.
- I walked to Big Lots!, which is in the same shopping center, walked in, found a penny on the floor, shopped, paid money. Well, here's where my excursion got interesting. I said I needed to buy some essentials. Yes, I bought toilet paper. A 12-roll pack. It was big. They didn't bag it. I had to do the walk of shame to get to my car. I passed a grocery store and the Goodwill to get there. I looked no one in the eye. In fact, I looked down and it paid off! I found a penny on the sidewalk!
- I survived the walk of shame and secured my Goodwill and Big Lots! purchases in my car then walked to the grocery store, Fry's, not the one I'd already passed. I found a penny in the parking lot!
- Inside Fry's, I shopped, found a penny under the coin machine where people bring their change in to redeem it. Yay! Oh, and I paid for my groceries, and then I drove home.
All in all, it was a fun day finding money! And I found the nut and pop tab, too.
