Ok. NOT a big finish for 2009. We went to the mall, walked around parking lots, hung out near the bank …but no…on the last day of the year we found a grand total of 7¢. In all-penny form. So that’s that on that.

Click it here for the GRAND, grand total and check it in a few when I start up the new year from scratch. (Hint, hint…I already found some cash!)

Thanks for following the rainbow!

Street Money Update! Wealthy Edition!

August 8, 2009 at 9:38 pm (Street Money) (, , , , , , , , , , , , , )

Oh we have been busy. We have found the money’s! The “wealthy” edition headline, may have been stretching it a bit, but it’s the most we’ve found at one time, in a long time! Various locations have placed the coin gathering…

Here: , parking lot, running trail, found it while trying to stretch and not pass out.

Here: , Zoo, (we went, we saw, we pictured, we video’d, we will post AND You Tube, the animals were crazy!! and we got it on film!! it was one of the best trips ever!!) again, one penny, Zoo, at the end of the day. Granted, there is not alot of cash with change, being passed around there. Everything is dollars or credit…kind of expensive…but it’s for the animals so…

Here: , Hooter’s. Hey, it was on the way home! I mean, we had to go RIGHT past it! Delicious! Quality time….with the kids….

Here: 24¢, Bowling Alley, inside. Kids found it near the arcade…of course! Had to do something fun on Friday too!! They were leaving me!!

Here: , Bowling Alley, outside. My find. For an even quarter over there!

Here: , at the PetSmart, outside in a  puddle, it was raining by then. It was actually raining all day Friday, but we had to get some feeders for the Oscars (still got a post about those guys) and Mason got himself two, new, baby Oscars, so tiny and cute; a Tiger and an Albino. I am hoping they make it through the next week while he is gone. New fish is always a risk.

Grand total for 2 days of scouring alot of miles in Illinois: 29¢

Not a fortune, but it keeps us busy!

Check here for the year total, and be sure to keep reading for more exciting posts about: OUR EXCITING LIVES!! Hahaha.

Street Money Update!

I’ll dispense with the usual, long chatter and get to the point.

10¢ on the floor of Hooter’s–(delicious)–Mason almost had his eye poked out and a tray of crab legs and steaming wings dumped on him trying to pick it up, but hey, we work hard for the money…haha

1¢ on the ground at the arcade/mini-golf/driving range/batting cage/go-kart fun center!

We were kind of busy this weekend, having fun and spending too much money.

One day we will break even. Ha. Check here for the year count.
