    don't know why but i'm one of the luckiest people i know when it comes to finding loose coins on the ground when walking anywhere!,,,,,,,,,i'ts common to find pennies,,,but i find Quarters and dimes and Nickles.,,,,,and sometimes $ bills,,,,,,i know folks drop money unknowingly,,,but it just seems i'm lucky in finding it,,

    Maybe it's because i watch the ground when walking ,,,due to having taken a few spills in my life i like to watch where i'm going i guess,,,,,,Sadly enough i never find enough to get rich on,,,,,,lolol,,,yeah right!,,,,,,,anyone eles??

    I've not been real lucky at finding money. Maybe found a couple of dollars total over my lifetime.

    Thing is, if I'd see a coin lying on the ground nowadays, I wouldn't be able to bend to pick it up! LOL

    It I did bend to pick it up, I wouldn't be able to get back up again! LOLOL

    I'll leave any coins I find for you, okay?

    Hi Sis -

    I usually do not find to mamy coins on the ground or where ever. However, I am not to proud to at least try & bend down to pick it or them up. Believe me, even if I might not have an easy time getting up, I will try.

    I do find money (coins) in the washing machine. They look so nice and clean. Sometimew I keep them and sometimes I put them in the little "ceramic Pipe" that DH keeps his coins in.

    Keep finding them sweetie, maybe someday you will be RICH !! I know I won't be.

    when a person picks up dropped money , you can read the phrase "IN GOD WE TRUST". I think that if more people remembered and believed this , the world would be a better place. :>)

    OK~~~Now there are some new insights on finding Money! And i agree! I think the Universe and God has a way of taking care of us when we or other folks are in need!

    I have said to God several times in my life,,,,,How am i going to Get the Money to Take care of This problem?? And somehow He always saves Me!,,,,,,Problems can Get solved all the time without Money too i've learned!,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    It's all in the way you look at it and the lessons we Learn when we have to go without!,,,I Have found several things in My life that i never thought we could do without,,,,,and Guess what We did just fine without that 1 or 5 Material things,,,,,,,,,,,,you learn to be inventive,,,and to shop around!,,,,,ok i'll stop now!.,,,,,,,,,lol,,,,Sis

    While I don't believe in god, I do find money frequently. Mostly coins. My husband thinks I'm nuts when I stop to pick up a penny - but, hey, if I do that 200 hundred times, I have a cup of coffee. Works for me!

    Today as I was coming out into the parking lot from my local pharmacy, I saw a bright and shiny penny lying right by my car! (Maybe my luck is turning around. LOL) Anyway, of course, I could not get down to pick it up.

    So, right away I spotted a friend who used to live near me but moved away. I yelled to him and told him today is his lucky day. He asked why's that? I said cause there's a bright shiny penny lying there and I cannot pick it up. I said , so it's yours! (meaning his).

    He picked it up and said that it was lying tales up. We both asked the question if that makes it bad luck?

    So Sis, my question is this: If you find a coin lying heads up, is that good luck. If it's tales up, is that bad luck???

    Just wondering....

    At least its nice too find out what happened to all that money I've lost.

    A three day weekend coming up,.......I will try not to lose anymore.

    Oh, I'm pretty sure that "In God we trust" was originally a printing error. It was supposed to be "In Gold we trust".

    Then the politicians decided that it was a good idea to have voters believe in God rather than in Gold.

    Or maybe it was deliberately changed with the first Federal deficit budget. Something like that:)

    Cheers, lol, mr Bill

    My dad used to say "see a penny pick it up, all day long you'll have good luck". I go through periods where I don't find anything but then i will start finding pennies all over the place. It seems it is always near an anniversary of my dad's. Like his birthday or father's day or his death day which was jsut before father's day.

    There is a mission group called Fellowship of the Least Coin. Women in every country collect the least coin and turn them in for mission work. So that is where my pennies go.

    I did find $5.00 once. I kept that. Godbless

    After a snow and when it melts down....check out metered parking lots.

    It can be next to impossible to find your lost coins in the snow, plus sometimes people do not realize they dropped part of their change.

    Someone told me that and I found around $2.75.

    I have and would return any money that can be returned. But the coins are up for grabs in my book.

    Thankyou all for some new prospectives on finding coins!,,,,,I like to think of it as goodluck too!,,donating coins to the Missions is a great idea!
    Remember when my girls were in school,,,,,,

    and a fund raising idea was to have the kids bring in the Pennies that they-parents had saved up over the years,,,,,,,,,,they got a great turn out! so i know that folks must be picking up those pennies!,,,,,,it baffles me how many coins actually end up on the ground! especialy pennies!,,,,,

    I once heard a saying that went like this,,,,"You find pennies everywhere because Abraham Lincoln's face is on them,,,and he wanted all men to be equal" so it's just a reminder i guess,,,,,p.s. Happy Birthday Thleaw!
