Found Money: Found More Than a Dollar Today

This afternoon I drove to a bookstore to buy a book they were holding for me. On the way I was stopped at a red light and noticed something shiny on the ground outside my window. Two quarters! I put my car in Park and hopped out to get them. Then later I found three pennies in a parking lot. 53 cents. I was thrilled!

Then I decided to go to the main Scottsdale library. I hadn't been there in a long time, probably close to a year and I almost didn't pull into the parking garage because some sort of big sports whoop-dee do was going on and they had signs out that read "parking lot full," but I did pull in to the underground garage and found a spot immediately! 

Inside the library I spotted two more quarters on the floor next to some vending machines! I found four quarters today. Yay! $1.03!
