Found 58 Cents Today

Today I ran some errands so I parked my car in the middle of a strip mall and moseyed along through the parking lot. Here's where I found money:


  • My first place to find some money was in a fast food drive through lane. I found 7 cents!
  • Then I found a nickel on the floor of a grocery store.
  • I found a dime next to a parked car (and there was a man sitting inside but I nabbed the dime anyway!).
  • Then I walked across the street and found a quarter in a pay phone change tray in front of a grocery store.
  • And the last change I found was a dime and a penny in a parking lot in front of the grocery store.


So that's 58 cents worth of found money. Not too bad!

On top of that, I also found lots more money since I last posted:  $5.12 plus a pfennig (Deutschland) and a flattened penny of a gray whale from Birch Aquarium.

The other day I read an article that talked about enjoying your surroundings and to always look up at the sky. Well, can you guess if go around doing that? I do not. I look down because I have never found money in the sky.

Have you found any money lately?
