Found Money Around Town

Howdy! It's been a few weeks since I've posted but I've been finding money pretty regularly. Today in fact I found a quarter in a bowling alley parking lot. The other day I found some coins at the dollar store and the grocery store. There is lots of money lying around waiting to be found!

Besides the $2.48 I've found, I found a Canadian 25 cent piece and a 1977 Italian lira 50 cent coin. The lira went out of circulation in 1990 so this was a cool find!

I also saw some elk grazing this weekend. So cool!

Have you found any money recently? Please share your finds with us!

Every Penny I Find Is Exciting

I don't have too much exciting to report. Since I last posted I've found $1.65 in change. Ka-ching! Actually every penny I find is exciting! 

I mostly find these coins on walks and in stores. I do find coins in drive through lanes of fast food restaurants (I rarely eat at these places but walk through the parking lots and drive through lanes), in parking lots (sometimes I spot a coin under a car or right beside it and wait for the people to leave and nab it), and on sidewalks. I have absolutely no shame, in case you hadn't noticed. 

Where do you find money?
