Day 72: Cans Cans Cans!

Income: 40.07 $

Trunk full of canscart with cans
During the last two weeks I was not only able to collect cans from my favourite coffehouse, but also during my visit to Grafton Lakes State Park. I also received a bag with cans and bottles from a friend of mine and was prepared to spend a long time at the bottle returning machine.
The trunk full of cans was in the end worth 10,30$ and equals to 237 cans and bottles (206 were refundable). It took me forever to return all of them.

The coming days won´t be too lucrative, as Hurricane Irene is on the way and will reach NY on Sunday. Even though I am located in the north of New York (where heavy storms are rather uncommen), the weather won´t be too pleasant. I´m planning to use this time for some investments. Maybe I´ll find something free on craigslist or, if time, tomorrow at one of the garage sales that are currently everywhere. Sadly, I missed the chance to get 6 boxes full of toys for free at craigslist. They were gone only one hour after the owner offered them.

I´d also be happy to have some more followers, so please press "join this site" on the right, if you are regularly checking my blog. Thanks to Member No.6  and thanks to all the other readers.

A Dollar Saved Is A Dollar Earned


  1. Create day for you.
    Is that right that in USA you get only 4 Cent for one Can?
    In germany you would be so rich with 237 cans ;)

    I think you are the leading Challenger now...

    Best Regards,

  2. Hi, I get 5 cents per can! That is not too much, but definetily better than 4 cents.
    I wish I would be ahead, but the swiss guy was just too good in selling the 4 globi books :( . Anyway, collecting cans is more fun!
