A few years back I started a Magic Money Challenge. It was a challenge to see how much money I could accumulate from money I found on the ground. As time went by, I quit doing it (not sure why) but I’m going to start doing it again.
As of right now, I have $7.65 in the jar. I have a $5.00 bill that I found in a bathroom at Gulfstream Park horse track and I also have a dollar that I believe I found in the parking lot of the same horse track. That is the only paper money I have found so far, the rest are coins.
I know most people think it’s dirty to pick up money off the ground, and it is, but that’s why they sell sanitizer, right? In fact, the people not wanting to pick up dirty money puts me at a HUGE advantage because what ever they won’t pick up, I will! Hell, I played in dirt for years when I was a kid and I made it this far so I feel that picking up a few coins or dollars won’t kill me. Also, people are starting to go out again now and not under Covid lockdown anymore so there is definitely more of a chance of someone grabbing their keys out of the their pocket and having a quarter or two fall out for me to pick up at a later date (it’s not stealing if it’s on the ground and they have already walked into the store, right?).
Some may call me crazy, and maybe you’re right, but think about it, how many times do you walk passed a penny and say “oh, it’s just a penny, who cares” not realizing it’s not “just a penny” it’s MONEY. If you found 100 pennies, you would have $1.00. With that money, you can buy your friend who doubted you a “Wish You Were Here” postcard when you have a MILLION pennies and on your way to Hawaii for vacation with FREE MONEY!
Okay, with all of that being said, who wants to do the Magic Money Challenge with me?!?!?!?!?! If you are interested, I want everyone reading this to get a jar, pick up any money that you find on the ground, put it in that jar and separate from any of your other money. I’m going to do an update on my progress in a month and looking forward to seeing how much you’ve found too! Let’s have some fun with this!!!
