Found 2 Cents Today

Today I went to a casino and won a tiny bit of money (really, not much at all), but I didn't lose any and I call that a good day! And I found a penny on the cashier's counter. The two women were arguing about it. One wanted to put it in the till and the other kept pointing to the counter. So as I left, I took it. Solved that problem!

Then later I found another penny in a parking lot.

I wrote this post at Bubblews about where my favorite place is to find money.

Hope you're staying cool and finding lots of money yourself!

Found 36 Cents Today and More Earlier This Week That I Can't Claim

For the past few days I've had a nice little visitor. My grandson has been staying with me and even though we (I) found money (and pointed it out to him), he kept it all. And that's okay!

But today he went to stay with his cousins so when I went to the store later in the day, I knew any money I found would be mine! It made me look even harder! 

First I found a dime in a drive through lane, then I checked a water vending machine and found a nickel, then I spotted a dime on the floor of the grocery store! I was thrilled. On the way home I decided to stop and get gas. At the gas station I found a penny then another dime! 

Have you been lucky lately? I hope so!

I've been adding some fun new designs on products in my Zazzle store. Here's one I like:

Found Three Pennies Today

Today I went to the post office, the library, and the grocery store. I found a penny in some rocks by chance while walking to the post office. I'm really surprised I saw it because it was dirty and the same brown as the rocks. It makes me think we walk by or over or on money all the time!

Then at the grocery store I found two pennies in two different spots. Yay! I love find money even if it's just pennies.

Zazzle is offering some new products. I've been having fun today making up some. Ping pong anyone?

I am Two Dimes and a Penny Richer

This morning I went "big grocery shopping." All that means is I actually made a list and bought enough stuff that I had to actually use a cart instead of one of those tote thingies as I shopped. 

Anyway, I found a penny on the floor by a checkout lane and as I was leaving the store I found a dime on the floor and then I found another dime in a water dispensing machine. Yay!

Found Two Coins on a Walk and Left Two Coins

This morning I took a walk before it got too hot out. I once again trotted up to the fast food place, a great place to spot money most of the time, and on the way, I found a penny in the street. Then I found a penny in a gas station parking lot along the side, no where near the pumps.

Then I went to the fast food place and saw two coins in the drive through lane but there were cars backed up and I knew it would be purt 'near impossible to get them so I walked on. And one was a quarter! So so sad.

To make up for it, I guess, I sold this poster on Zazzle. Yay!

Found a Dime at Fresh Start

Today I went with a friend to Fresh Start Women's Foundation, Women Helping Women. They offer workshops and classes and I think I'll check out some of them. When I was walking in, I spotted a dime on the sidewalk.

This afternoon I made a cup of this Tension Tamer tea then drank it iced. It was really good. I'd only ever drank it hot.

Found 16 Cents Today

This morning I took a walk and found three pennies (one in a parking lot and two in a coin machine) then a dime in an empty parking space. 

I was thrilled and thought that was it, but I had to run to the post office where I found three more pennies in two separate parking lots. So, that's a total of 16 cents today. Woo hoo! 

I posed my found money next to a book (The Merrie Christmas Drink Book from 1955) that I'll be listing in my Etsy shop.

Found Two Cents This Morning on a Walk

This morning I set off and took a short walk since it wasn't miserably hot out. Only 82°F, which is still plenty hot. By the time I got home it was 90. But the high today was only 99°F, which sounds horrible, but I was just out there and it's not bad at all. I guess that's what happens when you live somewhere for awhile. You adapt.

Anyway, on my walk I found 2 cents. 

I've been making some items to sell on Zazzle today using a photo of a couple of my cute stuffed guys from childhood. Aren't Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus so cute? I just love them and am happy to share them!

Took a Hot Walk and Found 7 Cents

Found 59 Cents at Fast Food Joint

Even though it's hotter than you know what out there, I took a walk just now. It didn't feel 106°F. Oh well, it was hot. And I walked slow.

I hadn't been out much yesterday so didn't find any money, and I was getting antsy for a walk and to find coinage. So, I walked to a fast food place and found 58 cents! Five dimes, a nickel, and three pennies. Then on the way home I found a penny in the street. Yay! 59 cents! 

That brings my 2014 found money total to $25!

Found Three Cents While at the Library and Grocery Store


I ran to the library today to return three books that were due today. They were Best Picks and couldn't be renewed. Oh well. I'd read two of them (After I'm Gone by Laura Lippman and Still Life with Bread Crumbs by Anna Quindlen). I'll check out Frog Music by Emma Donoghue another time.

After I left the library I found a penny in front of some dumpsters. Then I went to the store and found two pennies on the floor. Yay!

Found a Penny This Morning


This morning I took a short walk, maybe 3/4 of a mile, I don't know, but it was getting hot so I high tailed it home. I found a penny in the street!

Anyway, I took a photo of the penny. See? But now I can't find it. Oh well. It'll turn up (like a GOOD penny!). UPDATE:  It turned up. It was right there on the coffee table where I put it.

I just finished reading Still Life with Bread Crumbs by Anna Quindlen last night. It is the best book I've read in quite awhile. So good! I had to write a Squidoo article about it. Just click the link above to check it out if you like.

Took a HOT Walk and Found 31 Cents


This morning I had the bright idea to walk to Sprouts. Well, I should have gone earlier. When I left home around 9:00 a.m., it was 86°F and when I got home about 10:10, it was 91°F. Too hot! 

Oh well, live and learn. But I did find 31 cents at a fast food place. Yay! I doubt if I'll be taking many more walks since it's just too danged hot out. I'll really miss it. Maybe I'll have to try to get up earlier. We'll see.

I dropped the nickel I found on the floor so it's missing from the photo. Oh well. I let a few seashells get in the photo. Aren't they pretty?!

Here's a postcard I made on Zazzle of the ferry ride from Fort Morgan to Dauphin Island, Alabama when we were on vacation.

UPDATE:  I found 3 pennies when I went to Fry's this evening. Two were in the parking lot and one by the check out lane. That makes today's found money total 34 cents!
