President Obama set to promote money walking in his State of the Union message?

Journal entry 1/26/10: Weight = 171.4; Coinage = $2.14, 44 pennies, 5 nickels, 7 dimes, 3 quarters ($1.06 curb coins); Glass bottles = 9; Ground scores =2. Significant find = 3 different newspaper venders provide a quarter each. Phone returns with newspaper stand returns usually yield one coin per 50 attempts.

Journal entry 1/27/10: Weight = 170.4; Coinage = $3.03 (a good day for both traditional finds and vacuum canister finds. Also, two different utility walks provided $.54 cents from four different sites.) 33 pennies one wheat, 4 nickels, 5 dimes, 8 quarters.

Feature Entry: President Obama set to promote money walking in his State of the Union message.

The MoneyWalker has it on good authority that President Obama will promote savings in his 9 p.m. Eastern first-ever State of the Union address and that moneywalking will be the featured method. Unnamed sources indicate that he will plead for all Americans to not only take a daily constitutional walk as a way to salvage the hobbled health care reform (we want need the reforms because we will all be so healthy); and in anticipation of all the savings to families from finding money during the walks, he plans to shelve his plan for a three-year domestic spending freeze.

Caution however should be exercised before putting any stock in the rumor that the MoneyWalker is being feted to become the new MoneyWalking Czar.



  1. I am SOOO looking forward to this announcement! But on the downside, if everyone else in the USA discovers the joys of found coinage our totals will be cut drastically.

    Fantastic post! Nice totals, and will ya look at that weight just falling right off!

    Now I really must head upstairs and have hubby read this post. We will both be glued to the television tonight!

  2. Geesh, he must have announced it while I was in the kitchen getting popcorn. I'll watch the papers in the morning.

  3. Hi Bobby, nice totals. If you become a Cabinet member, keep me in mind for deputy czar, as my moneywalking finds are starting to pick up.

  4. Welcome Boonson as a new follower to the MoneyWalker. As for President Obama's announcement, he just ran out of time. The Czar thing is still going to happen. But with the Saints going to the Superbowl for the first time and all the madness happening in New Orleans, the Moneywalker can't be bothered with politics.
