Day 354

This morning at KFC, Taco Bell and Wendy's I found 1 quarter, 5 dimes and 2 nickels. Oddly, I did not find any pennies, so once again I am a penny short of the change cycle.

I was planning on changing that with a change run tonight, but once again, I was too worn out. So I end the night 30 cents from the goal. We are ALMOST there!

Total for the Day - $0.85
Total for the Race - $99.70

I just stumbled across this site and found it interesting. I dug around for a bit, but I couldn't find a post describing the general goal of the race (I'm guessing it's to find change adding up to $100?) or how you go about finding change in random places (where are good places to look and so forth?). I can't help but be curious.

Beth - I am excited also. I hope to get over the mark on Thursday

Vulture 6 - The easy come back is....Can't you find anything better to do than comment on my blog?
But I wouldn't say that, because here at the Change Race, we only have positive thoughts. So thanks for your comments!

Trent - Thanks for stopping by. If you go to the first months of posts (Feb 2005) you can get a good history of the Change Race. As for where to find change, that has evolved over the months. But Drive-Thru's are a good start!
