Whenever I'm cleaning out a house, I always pick up the pennies. My workers just sweep them up and throw them away. Many of my tenants move out leaving all kinds of change on the floor. Am I getting to be an old fogie and spare change isn't worth bending over for anymore?

Oh ya! We have contest to see who can find the most. So much fun. I find a penny and hold it up heaven and say "Thank you God for this symbol of abundance!"

One gentleman who runs 4 times a week for exercise always stops to pick up "coins" on the ground. After 4 years of collecting coins he decided to cash them in at a local Credit Union that doesn't charge to count coin's that are deposited. The amount came to over $7,700. In those days, that was a down payment on a home.... Instead he used the proceeds to buy his wife a used car and pay his son's City Collage Tuition for the next two years.... --47.156.xx.xx

A few years ago a newspaper did a test,..on a busy college campus they threw pennies around, almost no one picked them up. nickles a few did,..a dime more did but not most (of course you have to figure in that many did not notice)However they counted those that appeared to look or take a second look,..for a quarter, most did,...

I guess in the formula there might be the uncoolness of picking up small change,..

I had this talk with my secretary (young lady 30 yrs old )who said she didn't think she or any of her friends would ever pick up a penny on the street.

(BTW I was out with her and two of her friends a while ago,..none of them ever heard of Bob Hope,...or Johnie Carson)

Our family is very business orientated. we follow the rule "watch the penny's and the dollars will follow".

At a company I use to work at -- when hard times hit them -- the company was wasting man hours waiting for work to come in. We had meeting after meeting to get pep talks. Wasting pay and buying parts was the company's middle 2 names. At a meeting of the minds I wrote in prior to the Q&A pointing out spicific items. At the end of the question I put the penny's will follow quote and the head guy reads it and says "I have no idea what this means"

Lucky for me. That was april of 1986. August of 1986 I brought my first investment home. My last purchase was 2001 that put us at 80+. --99.103.xxx.xxx

An acquaintance of mind told me that picking up coins saved his life. He was in Manhattan on September 11, 2001 to meet a friend upstairs at Cantor Fitzgerald in the World Trade Center. He got there and called upstairs from the lobby. He found that his friend was gone to the dentist so he went back outside to pick up money and was safely away from the building when the planes hit. --73.33.xxx.xxx

I typically save the coins when cleaning out a rental. It's amazing how much is thrown out. Had a hoarder a few years ago. My kids helped on that one. Told them any coins they found they could keep. They found a little over $20 each.

Best find I ever had was almost running over $100 bill when mowing. Missed it and that one definitely went in my pocket. --98.175.xxx.xxx

Temporary back troubles cured me of bending over for pennies. Not worth another trip to the chiropractor.

I leave the coins for the cleaning crew. They are thrilled to find $.56 in coins.

Reminds me of a joke about a super cheap LL:

Guy steps up to a urinal and sees a dime in it. Looks around, thinks, throws a quarter in and says "10 cents no, but 35..."

I always laugh at the coins people leave behind, toe nail clippings, not so much!

My husband won a bicycle from selling newspapers back in the day, had his photo in the newspaper, that was great! He has always been a hard worker. He's 72 now.

Yes, pennies make dollars, I have always believed it. That and it isn't what you make, it is what you spend. --71.51.xxx.xxx

Make sure you check the inside trays of the dryers before you toss them. All the change that made it through the wash ends up in there. --98.114.xx.xx
