Found Money Blog: 96 Cents in Four Days

I've been walking each evening, though it's getting dark so much earlier now and it's still hot, so that makes it tough. Anyway, here's what I found money wise the last four days:

On Tuesday, September 22, I found 12 cents (2 pennies, 1 dime). 

On Wednesday, September 23, I found these coins:  7 cents (2 pennies, 1 nickel)

On Thursday, September 24, I found 25 cents (5 pennies, 2 nickels, 1 dime)

And today, Friday, September 25, I found 52 cents (12 pennies, 1 nickel, 1 dime, 1 quarter)

It's just amazing to me the amount of money there is out there to find! I found this in lots of places including parking lots, near cars, drive through lanes, in the street, in front of an ATM, and more.
