Banner Day for Finding Money -- January 4, 2014 Found Money

Today I took a long walk to a shopping center and scoped out nearly the whole parking lot. I spotted a quarter under the front of a car! Then I went to Fry's grocery store and used the self-checkout register. In the tray were three pennies!

I was pleased with my finds, but just now I went out for a quick walk around the block. I found a penny in front of my door as I walked outside then found a dime in the street. Woo hoo, I thought! Lucky me. 

Then when I came back inside my complex, I spotted another quarter in the driveway area. 

Yes, I found 64 cents today! Have you found any coins or bills this year? Please let us know. I know for a fact that I'm not finding all of the money out there.
