Mall change-

Found $0.87- two quarters, two dimes, a nickel, and twelve pennies! I also found a canadian penny but it's not worth much. Maybe one day I'll be able to buy a round trip bus ticket to Canada with all the foreign change I've found.. would it be worth it?


Total today: $0.87
Total thus far: $169.49

Thursday blues.

Found an impressive $0.51 cents in all different locations: gym, parking lots, and my daughter's school. If you could take a peek at me right now, you'd laugh your pants off. I'm currently wearing something called a 'sauna suit. This suit is meant to trap sweat and keep your muscles heated during exercise. I feel and smell like a giant hot air balloon... ahh the joys of physical fitness!

Total today: $0.51
Total thus far: $167.54

Not much to report... we've found a total of $0.57 and one euro cent yesterday. I'm about to go venture out to the gym- perhaps i'll find a sweaty buck? (sheesh, I have a better chance of finding nemo in a public toilet bowl right about now).

Total this weekend: $0.57

Lost in the snow!

So now we're covered in this sticky ice/snow/sleet combination. My neighbor shoveled the sidewalk last night only to find it full of crap this morning. I've not had much luck with finding change- 28 cents to be exact. Maybe if we get to go out, i'll find a frozen twenty buried in the snow lol.

Total today: $0.28
Total thus far: $166.46

Jersey Gardens was quite packed today. Since I didn't get a chance to work out this morning, I put on my valentine's day present from hubby and the kiddies- a polar F11 hrm - and went shopping. According to the watch, I burned 1349 calories during the five long hours. We found $0.86 during our shopping frenzy. I am happy.

Total today: $0.86
Total thus far: $166.18

The mall pays off..

Gotta love the mall! We found a total of $0.59 while walking around looking for bargains. Hubby bought me a brand new scent from Bath and Body works which I think will be the new fragrance for the spring. I love B&BW! BTW, have you checked out sparkpeople yet? It's INCREDIBLE! I LOVE IT!

Total today: $0.59
Total thus far: $165.32


I was helping hubby with his back injury.
I was working on a paper for my favorite professor, Lee Papa.
One of my good friends was undergoing chemo at 22
My friend Ro was turning a year younger than she is now (HAPPY BIRTHDAY CHELLI!!!)

Time flies when you're having fun.....

Apparently my posts are a day behind... oh well. Thursday's finds: $0.24. TOnight we head out to watch the film "300"- hopefully we'll find some noteworthy change.

Total yesterday: $0.24
Total so far: $164.73

The days have passed rather quickly and the Krabs family only has $0.38 to report- times are tough. People aren't letting change go past them so quickly these days. Various trips to the mall have yielded little or no change- never more than a penny's worth. Perhaps today will be a different story?

Total found: $0.38
Total thus far: $164.49

Weekend Re-Cap

Weekend Re-cap
Saturday was spent reminiscing at grandma's house. We walked around the neighborhood and found loads of pennies. Hubby found some change at school and once we got home, we forgot to update our little changepot. Sunday was a less strenuous day but we did manage to find some pennies here and there. Altogether we found $0.40 this weekend- it's a miracle we found change at all!

Total this weekend: $0.40
Total so far: $164.11

P.S Congrats to MRS. ROCCO on finding her first dollar bill this weekend! Mrs. R. was working a 16 hour shift and managed to squeeze in time to call me and let me know of the fabulous find. More details to come once I get a hold of her on the phone! YAYYY!!!

Rat attacks!

Sandy found one dime at school today. While I was out for a bit, I couldn't find any change. The weather looks promising over the weekend though. On a happier note, (happy for my cholesterol that is) I overcame the urge to eat White Castle due to the sudden rat attacks in New York City. Now I wonder how many hotfooted lil' rodents scamper around my favorite mini burger joint? Will I ever regain the confidence to eat out again?? Paranoia@!!!! What is this world coming to??

Total today: $0.10
Total thus far: $163.71

Beware the ides of March

What a good start for the first day of the month! The weather was fairly nice considering the touch of winter elements scattered about. I found a quarter in the parking lot of my favorite nail salon and Hubby found a penny outside a dollar tree store. Today was day two of the three hour cardio bonanza and hubby feels 1000% better than last week. Funny what a little exercise can do for the winter blues!

Total today: $0.26
Total thus far: $163.61

Today I took my 9 year old to the gym after school while mom watched Kitty. The little walk paid off as we found $0.48 cents on the way there. Sandy found a dime at school as well, making our grand total $0.58. Once we got to the gym, I was informed that my child can no longer go to the gym as the minimum age is now 16- apparently someone got hurt or made a fuss about kids in the fitness center. On a brighter note, hubby took me to platnet fitness- a 24 hour gym here in Staten Island. I love it! We did cardio for 2.5 hours straight while watching six televisions simultaneously... woohoo!

Total found: $0.58
Total thus far: $163.35
