Will it never end? I went over to help my neighbor move yesterday. And, like most people, my neighbor had all sorts of spare change lying around their house, in places that can only be reached when you're moving (such as underneath the refrigerator or oven). I asked them if I could keep the change I found, and they agreed. This adds over $1.50 to my stake, and rockets me into step 10.

I am going to sell the typewriter for $5. I've offered it to a friend, who made an offer for it. I told them that I would take it, but that I couldn't sell it right at the moment and I would let them know when I could. I guess it's time to contact them now. If they haven't changed their mind, this will shoot me up into step 11.

I haven't forgotten about the Penny to a Million project, I've just forgotten to update this blog on a regular basis.

After finding a bunch of spare change (including around $1.50 from vending machines), and selling that wall clock for a quarter, I have reached step 9. I now need to turn my $3.90 into an even $5. I plan to sell the Deal or No Deal DVD game for $1.50, if possible, taking me to step 10. Afterwards, I plan to sell the typewriter for $5.00 and begin work on step 11.
