I started with tracking any change that I find on July 14, 2009. The first year I found $49.98, so missed $50 by two pennies. This year I found $89.66, missing 90$ by 33 cents.

Not sure whether I just really got better at hitting the places that are likely to have dropped money or whether the recession has eased some which means a bit more carelessness.

I don't know whether there is an upper limit to the amount of money I can find. Jeffrey, in his change finding, found money in the hundreds of dollars. Somehow even at Seattle's sloppiest, hundreds seems a bit high. But I once thought that $40 was high.

    Well, in the Chicago area, I've only found $2.52 in one year. But let's face it, all winter long, if change is dropped on the ground, it disappears till spring.

    I rarely find money inside. I don't know whether I'm not really looking, or if Chicagoans holds onto their change better.

    I've found over $20 so far this year. I've been quite amazed.
