found money

July 22nd, 2009 at 05:59 am

Saving log - $6 tip box
Spending log - $14 dim sum lunch + $4 grocery
Found money - $0.04 (glass countertop at work)

You might have noticed the found money line that I've added in the last two weeks or so. I thought it would be fun and useful to see where and how much I find.

Today I found change in an odd place. I rarely find any at work, and I really don't like to find any at work. Did someone actually lose the money, or misplace it? Four pennies isn't a big deal to me, but these days you never know. In addition, I found it on top of a cabinet at waist level, non-floor money, so feels like not fair game ... at least compared to sidewalk money.

But I found it in on a glass cabinet in a public place and found at 5:30 pm, when most everybody was long gone.

    Hey, I am always eager to pick up a penny when I see it. 100 of them makes a dollar! LOL

    nmboone - I know, I do. I also work as an accountant/ bookkeeper in a non-profit. If you have the reputation of working yourself up over 4 pennies, that can work in your favor! Big Grin

    The strangest place I ever found money was at a fast food place. There was 11 cents in the take away packaged salt bin. That was yesterday and in total I found 48 cents. It was a good day!
