We Gave Away $0.23

April 20th, 2009 at 06:42 am

Just for fun Sunday while we were out running errands, the girls and I dropped three pennies and two dimes on the ground! Different places.

We know one penny was picked up because it was dropped near our van and was gone when we came back. We also saw a woman pick up a dime we dropped near the entrance to another store. She picked it up as we were coming out.

It was fun to think we made someone's day!
And, of course, a small lesson in giving. Oldest daughter was a bit inclined to keep her dime. I let her decide. In the end she dropped it!

Why $0.23? It's what I had in my purse.

    I have thought about doing that also. I know it make my day to find money, so why not make someone else happy?

    Thanks for reming me. I will do that today as I run some errands.

    That is awesome! I have done that before too, just left money drop. It feels good that someone else will feel good finding it!

    kind of a cool idea but i'd be worried about the poor little guy (the dime) finding a new home. It could just be swept up and lost forever.

    toyguy, I feel okay that the dimes will find good homes. Both were left in entrances to stores....one we know has already been found.

    I think this is really cool! It sort of reminds me of that experiment where they dropped $20 bills and looked to see who picked them up and whether or not the person who did tried to return the money. But in your case, the people who picked up your gifts didn't see you drop it, so they wouldn't have known who to return it to, anyway Smile

    A local pizza place was offering free buffets if you brought in a penny with their sticker on it. They said they dropped about 6,000 around their stores in the city. I am so bad that I probably wouldn't check the other side and would never know about the free pizza.
    Us penny picker-uppers thank you very much!
