Five Days of Finding Money: $3.21

In the past five days I've found a nice little chunk of change:  $3.21!

Here's what and when:

  • Tuesday, August 18:  37 cents (12 pennies, 1 quarter)
  • Wednesday, August 19:  33 cents (3 pennies, 3 dimes)
  • Thursday, August 20:  $1.63 (8 pennies, 3 dimes, 1 quarter, a dollar bill!)
  • Friday, August 21:  23 cents (3 pennies, 2 dimes)
  • Saturday, August 22:  66 cents (5 pennies, 1 dime, 2 quarters)

I found this money all over the place:  in the street, on the floor of stores, in parking lots and at gas stations, in change trays at the grocery store, in pay phone change trays, and more.

I love finding money! I can't believe I've found more than $65 so far this year. How about you?
