Coinstar find nets $1.22....Thanks Coinstar!
I went to a Kirkland, WA QFC grocery store to get the Seattle Times and found a Coinstar machine near the checkout. I looked in the coin return and found a bunch of change waiting for me. Why do so many people leave their change behind? This find brought in $1.21 in change (2 quarters, 6 dimes and 12 pennies. Not a bad find-and it was above ground! When you stop in your next grocery store, look for the Coinstar machine to see what you might be able to find.
Daily total: $1.22
Above ground: $1.22
Below ground: 0
Total to date: $31.80 (39 days of hunting averages out to $.82 per day)
The Lincoln Penny Project grand total: $73.62
Above ground finds: $40.59
Below ground finds: $32.67
