Found $6.63 in Five Days

The past five days I've found a whopping $6.63! The clincher was tonight on my walk. I found a five dollar bill in a parking lot! Here's a breakdown of what I found when:

  • Sunday, August 23:  33 cents (8 pennies, 1 quarter)
  • Monday, August 24:  8 cents (3 pennies, 1 nickel)
  • Tuesday, August 25:  29 cents (9 pennies, 2 dimes)
  • Wednesday, August 26:  23 cents (3 pennies, 2 dimes)
  • Thursday, August 27:  $5.70 (5 pennies, 4 dimes, 1 quarter, 1 $5 bill)

I found this money in all of the usual places:  drive through lanes, 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.

With this windfall, I've found more than $71 so far this year. Have you had much luck finding money? I sure hope so!
