Found 31 Cents Today


This morning I took out the trash and found a penny by the dumpster! I was happy but then later today I had to return some library books that were due. After dropping them off and choosing a few other books, I walked around the parking lot of a large shopping center.

Here's what I found:
  • a dime in an empty parking space
  • a nickel in another empty parking space
  • a penny in a Chipotle parking lot
  • a penny in a bank drive through driveway
  • three pennies and a nickel in a fast food drive through
  • a nickel behind a car
Yay! I just love finding money! Have you been lucky lately?

I posed this found money next to a quilted bookmark I made. I have other similar (and different) handmade items for sale in my Etsy shop.
