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.
