My friend Yesenia, shared this article about a man collecting more than $5,000 worth of pennies over the years. Over his lifetime, he focused on pennies alone. He never spent a penny, but instead put all of his pennies in buckets.
I don't think that is my intention. I know a number of people who seem to keep jars of money collecting. I think that after a year of collecting this money (August 31, 2016), I will deposit it somewhere where hopefully it will earn some interest.
This is simply an experiment to find out how much I can collect in one year. Initially, I thought I might be lucky enough to find money on the ground every day. For six weeks, I didn't miss a day of finding at least a penny on the ground. That included days when I drove to work and didn't really go out much. After six weeks, the penny finding became slightly more sporadic. I still find money on the ground almost every day. I took the bus today and found a penny as I got off.
I hope that you you are blessed with some extra money in your pocket today.
