If I had to live off the change I find daily.. i'd be in bigg trouble LOL. Check out this hard-working man on the left here. That definitely looks like a tough way to go about earnin' the daily bread. Kinda makes ya wonder just how easy we have it here in the good ole' USA. Job security. It means much more than you think.

Today we found a whole $0.08 in the form of eight lucky pennies while strolling around the Staten Island Mall. We didn't get a chance to walk the entire mall due to some complications. When I got home, I made a family favorite- chuleta a la parrilla (spanish pork loin chops on the grill). Hubby orders two of the same chops at a local steakhouse with a side of mash and veggies for 25 bucks. I bought 9 huge chops, made a similar (healthier) meal, fed the whole family AND made dessert- the meal (ingredients and all) came out to a little under 20 bucks. Ahh the joys of frugal domestication :)

Total Cash found and redeemed today: $0.08
