Harder to come by.

Locating ping is harder and harder these days- if it isn't snow, it's general malaise that seems to curb crowds as of late. I found a penny with a cross in the middle. How odd! I wonder if the bank will accept this penny when I deposit it in October? It's still change to me though :)

Two other pennies were found- one in school and the other on the stairs. Fortunately for us, hubby found a soggy dollar bill in the slushy snow. I think the five dollar bill (the first paper find for 2007) is calling out for more companions. Hubby lovingly tended to the dollar and nursed it back to health. Welcome to the changepot, mr. bill !!

The first paper find of 2007!

Congrats to Sandy Cheeks- she found a five dollar bill today! She also found a penny and a bridge token. The token is going into the foreign currency jar. This is Sandy's second paper currency of her life- the first was a ten and a one as we walked home from the grocery store. This was approximately two years ago. This five dollar find is our first paper entry for 2007- YAY! I also found a penny while on the way to pick Sandy up from school.

Also, I forgot to add six cents from the other day. I've been idle on this blog due to the snow situation. Now that the snow is partially melted, i'm sure we'll find more change in the coming days.

Miracle coins!

Today we found $0.33 cents- four nickels, a dime, and three pennies. All four nickels were found in front of my house as the snow thawed out. I found one on my way back from the gym (figured it was the change guru's way to commend my efforts) and the other three while running various errands throughout the day. Hubby found the dime and pennies at work. I have a very funny cough but it's not quite as comical as my husband's. His sounds like muttley from the old hanna barbera racing cartoons... (wow. i'm showing my age here).

Total Today :$0.33

Thursday and Friday...

My apologies for not updating as much as I'd like- the snow/ice has pretty much limited our capabilities for procuring found change. Yesterday (Thursday), Hubby found $.55 at work. Earlier this evening, I found $0.11 while buying tickets to go see "Ghost Rider" WHAT A FILM!! I actually liked it.. even though it didn't stick to the original comic book. Nic Cage was great... I could have done without the Eva Mendez boobage display. For accounting purposes, I'll add the two day total for today.

Total today: $0.66

Happy V-day!

The ice has really dampened all hopes of going out as a family since my babies are sick BUTTTT... Hubby found enough change to make this a profitable day nonetheless :)
Hubby and Mr. Rocco (of Piggy Bank) went out to the mall and found a few coins (34 cents worth) as Mrs. Rocco and I sang karaoke. Whitney Houston's "I will always love you" is alot harder to sing than I'd anticipated! Hubby said Mr. Rocco found 28 cents- including a dime hubby spotted but was beat to the chase- all in all a good day.

Total found today: $0.34

Been out of commission this entire week. I do have some change to account for- thirty three cents worth (not even enough to buy a stamp BUT it still helps toward the changepot totals. I also received the interest statement for changepot 05'- chalk up another 1.35 for that fund right there. Hope everyone is staying warm!
