See A Penny, Pick It Up .......

There are many times when I see odd coins lying on the pavement but I never pick them up. I guess we don't want people to think we're desperate for the odd penny. But I got to thinking ….. if I picked up every coin I saw, I wonder how much I'd have at the end of the year. So this year I'm going to pick up every penny I see. So far, after only 7 days, I have 3 pence.

I wonder if I'll find enough to pay my Photoblog fees. ;-)

      Just think, that's 3 pence more than you had before! I think it's a good idea :-)

      Wow - that is a great idea. I've never thought of doing that... but I feel the same way as what you posted about not picking up the odd coin because people thinking that you are desperate... HOWEVER, at this time... I don't think anyone would question it... plus, who cares what other people think... LASTLY.... you'll be that much richer than those of us who don't do this! haha

      I can't believe you have a photo of me on the coin- keep me informed of your finds.

      I had the idea of putting all the money I saved from special offers, 3 for 2 etc into a jar and seeing how much that came to. Hope you have plenty of luck this year!
