I Averaged About $0.50 To $1.30 A Week!I walk a lot and live near a big shopping center of where I get my groceries, Starbucks Coffee, and places to eat for Lunch. One of the many things (a hobby of mine) is keep on the lookout of shoppers losing money everywhere. I averaged between 50 cents to a dollar 30 a week of loose change and I often pick them up just for the sheer joy of it.
One time ... I found 12 quarters all in one place! ... That's a cool $3.00 and I had monies to do my laundry that week!
My biggest payday was I found a $20.00 bill out on the parking lot and nobody claimed it. So, I went and scooped it up and put it my wallet. I even found money in the washing machine - one time a crumbled up $5.00 bill that I had to carefully straighten out so its can dry.
I will pick up a penny ... without no hesitation and I often find them pretty much every single day shopping or meeting friends for Coffee at Starbucks!
So in a yearly total ... its about $48.00 in free monies and that's about right on the nose!
So I averaged .... a cool
a year in free monies!
About 20 years ago ...
I went to a race track and found ...
two of these bills out in the parking lot sitting 10 yards from my car and scoop them up!
Went to the bank and deposit them! ... plus my winnings too!
