out in the wash

This morning, I found $.62 in the washing machine. Since neither of the guys carry change and my pants weren’t in this load, I can only assume that it came from something I found in my scheming and washed before donating to charity. More words in the book.~~TSG

finally registered

CPI has now registered for his classes. I guess I can use the three pennies I found today to buy another word out of that textbook I was talking about yesterday. Maybe a “the”, since it is less than the dime. At a cent a letter, maybe the dime could get an “everything”.~~TSG

wonder what this dime just cost me

While walking with CPI across the Texas A&M campus, I found a dime. Considering the cost of schooling, it seems an awfully expensive way to obtain ten cents. Well, maybe I could buy one word out of a textbook for him.~~TSG

in-coming

Tomorrow, we are going to CPI’s in-coming student conference. It is a two day affair, but I can only attend one because of peak registration at the college I work for. So, I am going to the day we talk money. As in, how we am going to part with ours. Our goal is to keep CPI from having to take loans. This may not be possible, but I’m going to give it my best shot.~~TSG

first friday

Found another penny today in the same general place I found yesterday’s, the area where students line up who want to see an adviser. I’m guessing they get dropped when people go into their pockets or purses to get out their picture ids.

I also dropped by my Friday dumpsters. Looks like someone updated their computer systems; lots of routers, circuit boards, etc. CPI likes the ATI card I found. It is an older one from 2009, but looks to be still good. We’ll have to test it out. Most of the things will be parted-out for scrap. However, the new-in-the-box Bunn coffee maker just missing the carafe will be staying here if it works. Carafes are really easy to find at resale shops.~~TSG

back to work

Today, the full-time workers returned to the college from winter break. We were packed. I found a penny on the floor, though.~~TSG

a little bit closer

Went out today with FMP since it was his normal day off. Found $.10 in the parking lot of the mall. Not a lot, but every bit gets us closer to our goals. We were going to take some things to the scrap yard, but a recent thunderstorm has left things a bit muddy around here.~~TSG
