Sunday, February 18, 2007

Today I found 70 cents . . . 1 nickel, 2 quarters, and 15 pennies. One of the quarters was a 1952 silver quarter. I also found a really cool wooden bench, which sadly will not count toward the daily totals.

This evening I had to go to the ATM to withdraw some money for the bank. After that I went over to JR’s Car Wash, the car wash next to my apartment complex. At JR’s I found 43 cents (one nickel, one quarter, and 13 pennies). One of the quarters was a 1952 quarter, that is made of pure silver:

Also at JR’s I found a very cool bench that was sitting by a dumpster. The bench is L shaped and made of solid wood. It has already been placed on my balcony, for future sitting enjoyment:

On the way home I tried to find a taco stand that was open. The taco stand was closed but I did find 27 cents (one quarter & two pennies) on the ground near the stand.

Totals for the day: 70 cents
Race Totals: $496.50

It's amazing what people will throw away, isn't Chris. I like that bench and nice snag on the quarter. I thought I had one yesterday but it was 1965 dime. One year off.

What do you do with the change that you find? Do you just add it to your pocket change and spend it or do you save it? I currently put mine in a jar and when I have enough for a roll, I roll it and deposit it in my bank account. I haven't ever kept track of it until recently, I decided to start a spreadsheet and since 2/15 I have found $3.13.

I have had some amazing luck with thrown away stuff, including a Billy Bass (found in the trash) that sold on eBay for $25. I always try to keep my eyes open.

change is a good thing:

All the change that I find is deposited into a jar (actually several jars at this point). One day, when I get to an amount that I haven't decided upon yet, it will be rolled and spent on something. As soon as I hit the $500 mark I'll post some pictures of the jars.
