Quarterly Earnings Report

April 3rd, 2006

At the beginning of 2006, I wrote that Vicky and I were going to turn our habit of looking for loose change while shopping into a full-fledged game, with the intention of keeping a running total throughout the year. Our first quarter ended last Friday, and as of that date, we’d collected $3.79 in wayward coins, mostly pennies with a surprising number of dimes. (I presume that’s because dimes, while worth more, are smaller and thus less likely to be noticed than nickles.) That’s quite a bit more than I expected, though that’s almost certainly in part because we’re being more vigilant in our efforts.

We found another 14 cents this weekend, and I personally picked up 12 cents today. At this rate, we’ll have made a five spot by mid-April!
