I found 46 cents today

Do you ever find money on the ground? When you do see some, do you pick it up or leave it there.
I have been using public transit since 1995 and that is when I started noticing coins at the bus stops and I always picked them up. From there I started noticing coins in the parking lots. My sis told me once that I should save all the coin and see how much I can collect in a year. Well is does vary over time, but I think if I had saved it all, I might have a roll or two of pennies by now. (lol)
Once I found a dime and a penny and told her inflation was 50%. Well only 1 penny had increased (the amount wasn't important) and the other penny was still a penny. Needless to say she did not understand or appreciate my crazy sense of humour.
Today I was walking out of the mall and saw a quarter, then a dime, then another, and finally a dark little penny hiding in the dirt. Add that to the penny I found when I was walking INTO the mall,.........................
I don't find as much now as I used to when I lived in BC, but I think I WILL start putting it into a jar. Wonder how much will be there at the end of the year?
