|Street Change at 2 months (and Hello Kitty)|
I promised you an update, so here's the deal after 2 months.
According to Hello Kitty, the 2 month total is $1.37.
As you can maybe see in the picture, 10 cents of that $1.37 consists of Canadian Tire Money, which I probably need to explain for my non-Canadian readers.
See, Canadian Tire is Canada's oldest (I think?) big box type hardware store. They have a loyalty program called "Canadian Tire Money" where you get a certain percentage "money" back on purchases, except that "money" is only redeemable in-store. Okay, not true currency, but if I get to count the American quarter I found, I'm going to count the Canadian Tire Money too.
So that's today's lesson in Canadiana.
I should mention that I also found nearly $20 worth of subway tokens in a station, but without even thinking I picked them up and handed them to the ticket collector. All that was going through my mind when I found this little token pouch was, "The person who dropped this is going to be kicking themselves when they realize they lost it, especially if they're on a budget. I hope they get it back!" And I very much hope they do.
Oy, the compassion!
Anyhoo, the clock's a-ticking. Once we hit the 3-month mark, I'll let you know if we've reached our target of $1.90. Fingers crossed! If I can't make more money picking up change off the sidewalk than writing fiction... well, I might just have to keep working as an author to earn my living.
I'll keep you posted,
