Found $1.00 in Two Weeks

Well, the past two weeks were lackluster for finding money. I only found a dollar in change. I went to Illinois to visit family and it was cold! I mean really cold. A few days it was tolerable then it went downhill fast. Some days the high was just 10 or something ridiculous. Ugh. It reminded me of why I moved!

So, here's what I found on the few days I ventured outside:

January 6:  37 cents
January 9:  42 cents
January 13:  1 cent
January 16:  16 cents
January 20:  4 cents

I found quite a few coins in five airports while traveling. The rest were in the usual places:  on the floor of stores, at a gas station, in parking lots. Often I would just stay in the car though because it was frigid!

I hope you're safe and warm and finding money.

No, not 50 cents but I was hoping for a four-day streak! All of the coins were found in the normal places:  parking lots, floor of stores, drive through lanes, and the old standby:  here, there, and everywhere!

I also found a coin from Taiwan! I love finding foreign coins.

The past week plus I've found some surprising money. Just the other day in a coin machine change tray I found two Kennedy half dollars ...
