Happy New Year! Found 2 Cents to End 2014

Today I feel lucky that I found some money to end 2014. I wanted to end the year on a good note and this does it. 

Earlier today I went to Sprouts for a few things and found a penny as I was leaving the store. The penny was sitting up on its side in a  crack in the sidewalk just waiting for me.

Then this evening a neighbor called and asked if I'd take her and a friend to a bar so they didn't have to drive. I was happy to do this then after dropping them off, I went to Fresh and Easy. I found a penny in the self checkout change tray there. 

So, that's 2 more cents found in 2014. This brings my 2014 found money total to a whopping $46.61. That's more than $10 more than I found in 2013 so I'm happy!

I got this wonderful book I Must Say: My Life As a Humble Comedy Legend from my son for Christmas, and it's so funny, just like Marty himself. I just love this guy!

Found 11 Cents Today on a Bike Ride

Today was a gorgeous day, nice and sunny. The air was brisk but warm with the sun shining. So, I took a bike ride on my new bike.

To add to my found money jar, I found 11 cents!

First I found a penny in a shopping center parking lot then I found a dime on a sidewalk next to a water vending machine. I rode twice as far as I usually walk, so I think I got in about 4 or 5 miles. It was great!

Are you planning a new year's eve or day get together? Here are some ideas for cheese and fruit pairings that are light and delicious!



Update:  This evening I went to Fresh and Easy and found two pennies on the floor of the store. Yay! That brings today's found money total to 13 cents.

Found 7 Coins Total Yesterday and Today

I went to bed last night and as I was reading, I realized I didn't post to my found money blog for the day! I had found two pennies but forgot to post here because I left them in my purse. I was wearing sweatpants, so that's the reason. I usually stick my found money in my pants pocket and take it out when I get home. Oh well! No harm, no foul.

So yesterday, I found those two pennies and I can't remember where. 


Today though, I went to Goodwill (half off day) and ran some other errands andfound these coins:

  • two pennies on the floor of a grocery store in a checkout lane
  • a dime on the floor in the deli
  • a penny in a change tray then a nickel in another change tray, both at self checkout registers
Yay! That makes 20 cents found yesterday and today. 

I posed them next to a cute Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy vintage juice glass I just listed in my Etsy shop.


Oh, one of the coins is a 1934 penny! I really like finding old coins.

Merry Christmas from Found Money in the Street

I hope everyone had or is having a merry Christmas! I sure did! I'm tired though now.

I got a new bike for Christmas and took it out for a spin earlier. I'm sore! But while tooling around on it, I found 42 cents! Here's what and where:

  • I first found a penny on a sidewalk.
  • Then I found two pennies and a quarter in the street while crossing at an intersection. Good thing I was pushing my bike.
  • Next I found a penny at a gas station then one at a fast food drive through lane.
  • Next I found a dime in the street.
  • Then I found two pennies in another drive through lane.
  • I don't remember where I found the other penny.

And I didn't report a penny I found on Tuesday so will add it to today's total making it 43 cents found. Yay! This year was a great one for finding money. I'm eager to see how much more I find in the final six days of 2014.

Found Foreign Money: Coins from Three Countries

Today I walked to the grocery store and on my walk I found coins from three countries! It's international day at the Found Money in the Street blog!

Here's what I found:

  • a penny in my parking lot
  • a penny in the street (the gutter)
  • another penny in the street (the gutter again), but this one was a Canadian penny
  • a coin in the street as I was crossing the street that I thought was a nickel but it's  a 25-cent Aruba coin!
  • a nickel and a penny in the grocery store parking lot
  • a penny in a change tray at the grocery store
  • a nickel in the copier change tray
  • a penny in a parking lot

So, I found coins from the United States, Canada, and Aruba. Woo hoo! It had been awhile since I'd found any foreign coins. As usual, I'm not counting the Canada and Aruba coins in my found money total so that makes 15 cents found today. But the coins will go in my found money jar.

Found 52 Cents This Day

Today I did some Christmas shopping and found quite a few coins. Just take a look!

  • a penny in the street
  • a penny and a dime in front of a store
  • two pennies, a nickel, and two dimes at a car wash
  • two pennies in a parking spot
  • a penny at a gas station
I actually washed my car and when I was done, wandering around by the vacuums looking for coins (which I found!), I noticed that someone had used one of the vacuums and left with time left on it. So, being the cheapskate that I am, I drove over and used up the remaining suction. I got most of the floors tidied up. Nice!

So, are you finding more coins this time of year, too? I think people are just dropping more coins as they are shopping. What do you think?

UPDATE:  I just ran to the grocery store where I found a nickel in the change tray of the self-checkout register! Yay! That brings today's found money total to a whopping 57 cents.

Watched Wild and Found a Penny

Today I saw the movie Wild and just loved it! I read the book a few years ago and loved it, so I figured the movie would follow suit. They left out some detail but it was fairly long (nearly 2 hours) so they had to trim some fat somewhere. This is still an excellent movie, and if you haven't read the book by Cheryl Strayed yet, I'd do it then go watch the movie. It'll make a lot more sense with all of the background info you get from the book, but it isn't really necessary.

So, this afternoon I took a walk (not a 1,100-mile walk like in the movie, mind you) but a couple of miles, I guess. I found a penny, one lone penny, at a car wash.

Two Nickels to Rub Together

What is it with nickels lately? I'm not complaining at all, min you, but this is the second time recently that I've found two nickels. And yes, after finding them, I was rubbing them together in my pocket. I'm rich! I'm rich!

I was at the grocery store using the self checkout register and heard a clicking in the register next to me. The man who had been there checking out had left but a coin dropped into the tray. I checked it out and it was one of these nickels!

Then I was walking to my car and spotted another nickel on the sidewalk. Love it!

They were having a yard sale and were nice enough to let me bring some of my junk to sell. And some of it did indeed sell, but I also had plenty that didn't make it to a new home. That stuff I donated to Goodwill. While unloading it, I found a penny on the ground.

A Day for Finding Dimes

Yes, today was a day for finding dimes. And dimes only. 

Granted, I only found two of them but I just love to find any silver coins! I love finding copper ones too though. I'm not really very picky when it comes to finding money.

I found the first dime in a parking lot when I was leaving a study I did today. It was just some finger pricks. $30! To learn more about these studies and clinical trials I've done, check out my ebook Earn Money as a Lab Rat.

Then later I found another dime when I was walking out of Michael's. It was right there on the floor by the door. Small, silver, and shiny, but it caught my eye!

I Have Two Nickels to Rub Together (plus some pennies)

This morning I ran to the post office and parked at a shopping center across the street. While I was walking over to the post office I saw a nickel in the street then on found another nickel on the sidewalk in front of the post office! I think nickels are the least common coin I find so this was something! 

Now I have two nickels to rub together. I'm rich! 

Then I went to the dollar store and found two pennies on the floor. I also bought about 13 items. I never think I need anything there but found all sorts of stuff today. Do you do that, too?


This afternoon I took a walk and found three pennies:  

  • one as I was crossing the street so, yes, I found money in the street
  • one at a gas station
  • one in a fast food drive through

I posed these coins next to one of the saguaro cactus ornaments I made. They're available in my Etsy shop (just click the link up yonder). 

I saw hundreds of these cacti for real yesterday while driving. I stopped and took a few photos. Here's one.

I'm almost to $40 for this year! Hard to believe that just picking up mostly pennies, I've found this much! There is money out there to be found. Have you found any of it lately?

Happy Thanksgiving! Thankful for Found Money and Family

Today I was lucky enough to spend the day with my daughter, son in law, and grandson. That made my Thanksgiving happy. 

I drove a couple of hours and had to make a few pit stops. At a gas station I found a dime inside and a penny in the parking lot. Then later I went to Dollar General for ice and found two dimes and a penny inside the store. So, I found 32 cents today and had a lovely day. Hope you did, too.

Found 23 Cents Today

Today I spent the afternoon and evening with my son and his family for an early Thanksgiving celebration. It was great! We ate pizza my son made and other goodies throughout the day. Tomorrow I'll have turkey and all that so this was perfect.

Found 12 Coins Today Totaling 21 Cents

This morning I ran to the post office then on my meandering walk back to my car, I found several pennies in parking lots. Then I went to the dollar store and found a penny on the floor. That made 5 pennies.

Then I went to Walmart and hit the jackpot! Well, a small jackpot. I found 6 pennies and a dime on the floor, all near checkout lanes. One penny was near a guy's foot who was waiting in line. I didn't want to appear too eager so I moseyed along and when I came back, it was still there. I think lots of people just don't look down.

So I found 21 cents in all:  11 pennies and 1 dime. Yippee! And later I found a penny in the street.

I posed the money next to a family of rocks I painted

I called a friend today and decided to take a walk while we talked. I'm glad I did since we talked for more than 2-1/2 hours! It was really productive getting in a good walk and chatting! 

While I was walking I found nine coins. Here's what and where:
  • two pennies in a fast food parking lot
  • two pennies in an alley behind a shopping center
  • two pennies on the sidewalk in front of a car wash
  • a penny at a gas station

Eighteen cents! So cool! I found these seed pods and thought they were pretty.

Found 17 Cents Today

Today the weather was perfect here. The temperature was in the low 70s and it was overcast with some sun peeking through. So, I took a walk.

In a shopping center I spotted a penny on the ground then saw three more pennies sitting on a concrete pedestal holding up a light. I walked on and found another penny in a parking space then another in a fast food parking lot. Then I saw a penny in the street (the really chewed up one in the photo). 

Later I went to Michael's and found a dime on the floor when I was checking out. That makes 17 cents total found today!

Found a Penny Inside the Gas Station

Today I had to get gas (as opposed to simply having gas) and had cash so went inside to prepay. On the floor by the counter was this penny!

The green colander on the other hand will be going in my Etsy shop for sale. I found it recently and love it but don't need it. I really like it though. A lot.

So, I decided I'm going to list it on the high end and if it sells, okay. If it doesn't sell after the 4 months it'll be listed, it's mine!

How's your week going?

Found 17 Coins Totaling $1.09

Today I ran a bunch of errands and found a bunch of coins. Here's what and where:

  • a penny in a parking lot
  • a penny on the floor at the grocery store
  • a penny on the ledge of the coin machine at the grocery store
  • coins totaling $1.03 in a change tray at the grocery store
  • a penny on the floor at Goodwill
  • a penny in the parking lot here at my complex
  • and I honestly can't remember where I found the other penny

I love days when I just keep finding money! I also found a corner of a dollar bill. It doesn't count, of course. Darn it.

By the way, I joined a new social media site. It's sort of like Facebook, actually it's very similar to FB, but you get paid for liking, sharing, and commenting (basically interacting) with your friends and family. Here's my Tsu affiliate link if you'd like to join Tsu (pronounced sue). I've earned $3.54 in a couple of weeks. It'll be interesting to see how it goes!
