Four on the Floor

Crosswalks are a good place to find spare change because most people are too smart to stop and look for a dropped penny in the face of four lanes of on-coming traffic.

I am not most people.

I found four pennies in crosswalks today. Even in this one where they had to cut through the plywood so pedestrians could seen when it was walk time or stop time. All I could see was dime time.

Total haul for the day = .04

TOTAL to date = $19.56

Good to know you're progressing fast.
I'm reporting live from Queen st. West where the heavy rain last night has caused many coin streets to surface. It's a good time for coin hunters if you are one. I already found 3 pennies while holding this mic.

Live from Toronto, this is Coin Network News.

Back to you Mame.

Are you right in the city? At this time of year the self-service car washes are gold mines. People have to wash the salt off and vacuum out the dirt. They just throw the change out the doors, I think.

I love the photo of the cut-out walk sign.

Oh, and I am also falling in love with your beautiful dog.

Welcome, MoneyWalker! Walking is the best exercise. I don't have a car, I take the stairs whenever I can, and I love to walk - I find more money that way!

Glad to hear that everyone is getting lucky finding change! I had a busy weekend so forgive the gaps in posts. I am back on board now!
