i was walking my dog one day and i was about 8 months pregnant...yes, i was a tad uncomfortable, to say the least. i happened to see two shiny quarters on the ground and no one else in sight. i thought "yippeee...i just found $.50!!!" and i bent my preggers butt over and pick them up! then i started wondering....i got excited over $.50...i wonder how much it would take for someone else to put forth the effort to pick up money off the ground... penny lovers? gotta be paper?? or anything silver and above?? thanks!

I would pick up anything and have done several times. from 1p upwards. BUT I DO feel guilty if I find paper money. I dont like to lose paper money myself so I feel guilty about taking someone elses!!! I know they are not there and more than likely dont know that they have lost it but I still feel guilty. I feel that I have to give some of it to charity!! It is the way I was brought up I suppose.

anything, i like to find pennies and quarters, but paper is the best. i decided to start a "piggy bank"...in a pickle jar because i was finding a bunch of change at the time, now the jar is almost halfway full, and it was a big jar too. so all u penny haters, it pays off to pick one up when u see one.=)

If I see a penny on the ground. I get excited and pick it up. As penny's right side up mean good luck. But they also can mean someone from heaven said hello.

Anything silver would work for me = ) If my kids were with me I would have them pick it up and let them keep it...I know they would be so excited!!

If i find pennies or cents, i give it to the beggers but i get excited when i find big amount of money like $1 or $10 or more. I am too happy that day, I tell my mom about it. And then i happily spend it because black money is not at all usable for a long time(this is a saying in India)
