Found 30 Cents and a Carwash Token


Today I went to the grocery store for a semi-big shopping trip. I often go when I'm out walking but I wanted to buy some things that were too heavy to carry home (jars of pasta sauce, for one). 

So, I walked around the parking lot anyway and I found a penny, then found a penny on the sidewalk in front of a store, then I found a quarter and a carwash token (Weiss Guys Car Wash!) in a change tray, then three more pennies at the grocery store. 

See how the two pennies in front (two are stacked up) are stuck together. Weird. Not sure if they're glued or what but they won't budge. Well, I just tried and they came apart after all.

Have you found any coins or bills lately? I hope so! It's almost the end of the month. Hope I find a ton more to end out April!

Found 11 Cents on a Walk

Today I walked to Fry's grocery store. I went to check out the Easter candy on sale. I found some yummy ones! Lindt Lindor chocolate eggs... scrumptious!

On the way I spotted this penny on the sidewalk by a door to an insurance company. Then on the way home I found this dime in a parking spot. They are both so shiny and look like new! The dime is new (2014) but the penny is 10 years old. 

Guess it's lived a charmed life! And speaking of charmed, check out this sweet birthday cake charm!


Note:  I took the trash out and found another penny by the dumpster! That makes 12 cents today. Yay!
