2 Days of Found Money Total $1.13

In  case you hadn't noticed, I've started lumping a few days of found money together sometimes. Today is one of those times. I just get busy and even though it only takes me a few minutes to add a blog post, well, some days I'm lazy or busy or whatever.

So, two days ago I found 2 pennies while out running errands. I can't remember where now but I found them and they're shown in the photo.

Yesterday I didn't find any money. *sad face*

Today I found a penny on the pavement beside my car at the library parking lot then later I went to the store and on my way back to my car, I found a dollar bill!!!!! and 5 pennies and a nickel! Yee haw!

So, that makes $1.13 found over the course of 2 days (or 3 days if you're counting the dud day). Yay!

2 Days, $10.95

Okay, big news here in the land of found money! Yesterday I took a walk in the morning to the grocery store and found 2 pennies and a quarter. Yay, I figured. I love it any time I find any money, especially silver coins!

Then last evening I took another walk and found... wait for it... a ten dollar bill in a parking lot! No one was around and when I saw it, I thought it was a dollar till I got close and yep, a tenner!

Then I found more coins and today I found 65 cents for a total of $10.95 in 2 days! I have a feeling this year is going to be my best for finding money yet!

UPDATE:  Well, duh. I just checked and last year (2014) I found $46.61. With this windfall, I just surpassed that! I'm at $47.79 for 2015. Woo hoo!
