FMJ - Day 413

May 15: This day's finds were 37 cents. After 3 hours of tennis this morning -- I played some great points, lots of quick volleys -- I stopped for lunch at Weinerschnitzel on L.A. Ave. I found a penny in the parking lot. After school, the kids and I shopped at Wal-mart in Simi Valley -- found a dime there. Then, we went to the recycling center on Sycamore Rd. I found a quarter and a penny near the payphone.

We turned in $16.20 worth of Bottles & Cans. While waiting in line to use the recycling machine, some guy with a full-bag approached us to ask if we'd give him $2.00 for the bag of cans. I figured there might be more than 2 bucks worth and I obliged him. Yep, it was $3.05 worth. Not a bad return on my money. I wish more people would offer that deal.
