I Did It! I Did It! $100+ Found in 2015

Today I was on a mission.

As I mentioned in my last post, as of Tuesday, December 29, I had found $99.85 this year! I had to find 15 cents more to make it an even $100. Or more, of course!

Yesterday on my walk I found two pennies and a dime so that brought the year's total to $99.97. Not good enough! 

This morning I went to two thrift stores and three other stores and only found 1 penny in the parking lot in front of Big Lots. Ugh. So this afternoon I took my last walk of 2015. I went my regular route and didn't find a thing! Then as I was about to head home, I scouted out the McDonald's drive through and yep, there it was! I found 37 cents (two pennies, a dime, and a quarter). Whoopee!

So that brings my found money total for 2015 to $100.35! I'm tickled pink!

How about starting a found money challenge yourself for 2016? Here's a fun bank to help you know where that money should go. It helps kids learn about sharing, spending, and saving money.

  1. Really marvelous that you hit the $100 mark. Tell us if you have any special plans for your found money. A big splurge, maybe?

    1. Thanks, Virginia! I've never spent any of my found money. I'm not sure what I'll do with it when I finally decide. I have had to add a second large jar since I filled one!

  2. Peggy, This is a marvelous story I thoroughly enjoyed. I can't wait to see how much 2016 holds for you. Good work!!

  3. Congratulations! That is really a fun accomplishment. I found a sea coral encrusted penny in Mexico last week. Kept it for a mosaic I'm planning.
