Found 63 Cents at Grocery Store and in My Parking Lot

Today I ran to Fresh and Easy for a few things (and to use the $5 off $20 purchase). I didn't find any money. Dang.

Then I drove to Fry's for some other groceries, and as soon as I walked in, I checked a couple of the change trays on the self-checkout registers. The first one had 53 cents in it! Woo hoo! Then I spotted a nickel on the floor and I walked on a bit and found a penny! Man oh man! Lots of lacksidasical people at the store today, I'd say. I shopped and drove home.

The battery in my clicker that opens the gate to my complex is dead so I stopped the car and got out to manually punch in the code. In the parking space right there were 4 pennies! If my clicker had been working, I would have just driven right by and missed them. Woo hoo again!
