I read a blog post the day about this very thing . . .

"Each time I find a dime, I interpret its message as Do not worry about money or finances. I will take care of your needs."

PS  I never seem to find coins anymore as almost everyone uses debit cards and they outlawed our pennies!

I find this interesting because whereever I go I pick up any change I find. My momma taught me that pennies make dollars.  However my children would walk past it.  I failed them somehow.

You can't buy much with change these days but still if you stash it in a safe place it accumulates and will certainly come in handy for something unexpected.

Funnily enough I picked up a dime and some pennies the other day when I was out showing a home and on the way back to my car. I almost left them them there, as my client was just a few feet away getting into his car and I thought I might look like an idiot.  Then I remembered my mother saying it brings good luck to pick pennies up, so I picked them up regardless of what he thought... That's my mother for you. Long gone and still having an impact on my day to day decisions.  :)

I'd pick up a dime!  I tried to pick up a penny the other day and it seemed to be stuck to the cement.  I didn't keep trying, as it was in front of a home that is known for (and advertises) that they have cameras.  I didn't want to be on candid camera, so I quit. Lol. -Kasey

The fun of picking up a coin off the ground or receiving back change from a purchase is to look at the date and see what you have.  If that was a pre-1965 dime it was actually worth about $1.33 with today's silver prices.  Always fun to check.
