Heads Up: A Penny a Day: Take 2

Posted on

Last January, I started a hobby and a second project in addition to The Hobby Hoarder called “A Penny a Day.”  I wrote about the project initially in this blog post.

The idea was that I would leave a heads up penny somewhere each day, every day, for a year, for someone to find. Then I would post to a blog, photos like these:

About two months in, I fell off the wagon, leaving pennies only sparingly through the rest of the year.

This year, I am ready to get back on the wagon and try again. You might wonder what drives me to leave a penny each day, heads up, in a random location.

It’s simple.

 I personally believe that something as simple as a heads-up penny can trigger a shift from negative thoughts to positive ones. I couldn’t prove that to you scientifically–but when was the last time you found a penny and didn’t automatically check to see if it was a heads–or a tails? And what did you do when you discovered it was a tails…or a head? To be honest, I’ve read that many people don’t pick pennies up at all– “too small.” But I want to believe that the kid in us will still get excited over something as simple–and small as a heads-up penny. Besides–Remember when a penny could buy one swedish fish?—Those were the days!

On January 1, I rebooted the project and left a penny in McCarren Park, Brooklyn:

Like the idea? Leave pennies and send photos over to libbysegal12@gmail.com. This is a blog to host your lucky cents as well. I hope you’ll join me in the fun. OH and if you happen to find a heads up penny, hold on to it–you never know how far a penny may take you.
