Finding Money Is Easy If You're Paying Attention (and Looking Down!)

So, today I ran a few errands and parked at one end of the parking lot. The store I needed to go to was at the other end. Hey, whatever it takes to get a little walk in, I say!

So, on the way, nothing, nothing, nothing. Went to the store, made a payment. Nothing. Went to the grocery store, walked around, got my groceries. Nothing. Till I was in line and there on the floor was a dime! It looked extra tiny to me so I guess I can understand why people walked right over it. But I grabbed it and it still looked little, but sitting next to the other two dimes I'd found since I last posted, I realized it's a regular dime. It's cool.

Then on the way back to my car, I spotted a penny in the parking lot. Like the heading says, it's easy to find money if you're paying attention. It really blended in and I'm surprised I saw it. 

I've found $1.72 since December 1. Not bad but not great, but I'll take it!

And since then, I've added a couple of more classes on Skillshare. You can sign up to take unlimited classes for just $.99 right now. Woo hoo. That's what I did and I'm enjoying the variety of classes they offer.  

If you'd like to check out one (or both) of my classes for free, here are links good for a few free enrollments:

How to Make a Chalkboard (image below... I used a piece of wood to make that chalkboard)
How to Make Bath Salts (image to the right... I used a vintage salt shaker for this recycled jar)

Enjoy! These free links are good through Friday, December 16 at midnight.They are easy and fun recycling craft projects. And would make great gifts that you or the kids can make. Perfect for giving to teachers or just about anyone!

Are you finding lots of money? I hope so!
