Found $2.19 in 4 Days

Today is the last day of July (and there's a blue moon tonight!). The past four days I've found quite a bit of money:

  • Tuesday, July 28:  $1.85 plus a Romanian coin
  • Wednesday, July 29:  17 cents
  • Thursday, July 30:  13 cents
  • today, Friday, July 31:  4 cents

That's a total of $2.19! Woo hoo! I found this money in the usual places:  in the street, on the store of a floor, in parking lots, in a change tray at the grocery store, at a gas station, and other spots I've forgotten.

One penny I found in the street is folded over! It's the coin on the left in the photo.

The coin from Romania looks like a penny but reads 5 Bani, Romania 2011. This coin is under the folded coin, on the left bottom.

Vacation Found Money-- $1.82 in 2 Weeks

I just went on vacation to Illinois then drove to the east coast with two sisters. Along my travels I found money, of course!

In total I found $1.82:  4 quarters, 3 dimes, and 52 pennies.

I didn't write down all the places where I found this money but I traveled through 14 states and I found money in most of them.

I also found some miscellaneous stuff that I added to my little snack size bag. Particularly cute are the mini clothespin and a silver charm that reads "Life is tough but I am tougher."

Here is a photo of Liberty Enlightening the World (the Statue of Liberty's real name) from the ferry leaving Liberty Island after we'd visited her.

Found Money Blog: $1.48 in 5 Days

I'm slacking off here. I've been finding money but too lazy/busy/whatever to post each day. In the last five days I've found $1.48:
  • Tuesday:  66 cents
  • Wednesday:  2 cents
  • Thursday:  24 cents and a Canadian penny
  • Friday:  nuttin' honey
  • Saturday (today):  56 cents
I stacked the coins I found on the latest book I read. Finders Keepers by Stephen King is the follow up to Mr. Mercedes. Both novels are so good!

I just had to show this book because the title is my found money motto:  finders keepers!

Places where I found these coins:
  • parking lots
  • drive through lanes
  • change trays and grocery store floor
  • gas stations
  • sidewalks
  • convenience store
