Found Money Blog: 3 Days, $1.30 Found

Over the last 3 days I've found a bunch of coins. Here's what and when:

  • Thursday, August 6:  73 cents
  • Friday, August 7:  11 cents
  • Saturday, August 8:  46 cents

Coins of note include a penny that was stuck in the tar in a parking lot. I used my car key to pry it free. Of course one side of it has a big glob of tar on it, but it's good enough for my found money jar!

This $1.30 pushes my 2015 found money total over the $60 mark for the year! Woo hoo!!!

Check out this cool bank. It has three compartments:  spend, save, share. I love this idea for kids (and adults) to divvy up that money appropriately.
