Update Update

Been really busy the past week, brought dad home from the hospital over the weekend and we're now trying to convience him to stay over at my brother's place as its more conveient. Anyway managed to pick some loose change, she found a $0.20 coin in the library and I found a lonely $0.10 coin in the return slot of a vending machine, guess some people really don't want their money back...

Started with $208.85

Ended with $209.15
$0.20 from her
$0.10 from him

Update on Stage 13

With everything that's been happening in the world today(the global market spiral and London's insane riots) and at home its sometimes really a pick-me-up when you find stuff laying around. Especially when it just so happens to be right next to you when you park the car! That's what happened today, after dance class(yes we're taking dance lessons) she spotted a dollar coin on the empty lot beside my car, then after dropping off her shoes to use the ATM nearby, I found a dollar coin under the checkout counter of the supermarket.

And earlier in the day when she was at the library she found a dime.

Guess today was kinda good in terms of finding loose change.

And to add a little, she found a dime and a nickle under the vending machine when we were visiting my dad on Saturday.

Guess we just gotta find our little pieces of happiness whenever we can.

Really hope the global situation and my dad's health picks up soon.

what to do now?

Been wondering what I can do with the fund's money, it seems a little stagnant to be just doing surveys and picking coins off the ground and trolleys.
What methods would be deemed more likely to succed? From trade there is the fear of not being able to sell the item at hand so in the end it'll just end up like my comic book, stashed at the corner and with its value stuck in limbo... not too sure how to proceed, should I wait till I get over $1,000 before I start in higher end trade? or should I get her to try her hand at online sales of clothes via Ebay or a blogshop? It looks like a pretty good market with so many local blogshops being able to sustain and even grow into a successful enterprise. But I guess that's just the successful ones we see and not the many number that crash and burn into oblivion...

What do you think? Drop an idea at the comments.

A bit of smiles

Had lunch with her family on sunday at a country club and found $0.40 in the vending machine at the golf range, she spotted it too so its gonna be a 50/50 split on this one.
