    by , 07-05-2009 at 03:58 PM ([email protected]'s Blog)
    I like to walk and when I walk, I am always on the lookout for coins. I donít really consciously do this ó it has become a habit over the years. What I do know is that most years I add over $100 to my savings (you would need to keep over $10,000 in your local bank to earn the same amount in interest) simply by keeping my eyes open and knowing where to look.

    Hereís the funny thing about finding coins. If you are doing this to try and make extra money, itís not likely to work. While ...

    Now, my friend is usually ...
