As I mentioned in my last post, as of Tuesday, December 29, I had found $99.85 this year! I had to find 15 cents more to make it an even $100. Or more, of course!
Yesterday on my walk I found two pennies and a dime so that brought the year's total to $99.97. Not good enough!
This morning I went to two thrift stores and three other stores and only found 1 penny in the parking lot in front of Big Lots. Ugh. So this afternoon I took my last walk of 2015. I went my regular route and didn't find a thing! Then as I was about to head home, I scouted out the McDonald's drive through and yep, there it was! I found 37 cents (two pennies, a dime, and a quarter). Whoopee!
So that brings my found money total for 2015 to $100.35! I'm tickled pink!
