What a Way to Start the New Year! Found $1.23

Today I needed some black-eyed peas to eat this new year day, so I walked to Fry's grocery store. It was a little chilly out; the high was only 46 but while I was moving, it felt pretty good. I'm so glad I went because I found $1.23 total!

Here's what and where:

  • a quarter on a ledge under a soda vending machine outside the store
  • 2 dimes and 2 quarters in the copier change tray inside the store
  • a token (It says No Cash Value, so I'm not sure what it is.) and a Mexican 50 cent coin on the counter of the coin vending machine in the store
  • a penny on the sidewalk in front of a Red Box movie machine outside the store
  • a quarter in a drive through of a chicken joint
  • a penny in front of the dumpster in my complex
  • another penny but I can't remember where I found it!

I was thrilled to say the least to bring in the new year by finding 11 coins! I won't count the token dealie or the Mexican coin in my found money total, but it's still fun to find them!

I predict that 2015 is going to be a great year! Happy new year to you!
