I always pick them up, put them in that black thing in my car, then transfer them to the bowl in my microwave on the right.
My theory is this:
It’s a test given by life… maybe you are “oh, I sure could use some extra bucks” and life is all, “alright then, here’s some money, this is a test” and if you don’t pick them up life shuts it down right then because life figures you don’t appreciate the little amount, what will you do with a larger one?
I’m saving up to buy a lottery ticket with my pennies (I find a lot of dimes, too). One time I picked up a penny for an elderly man in an elevator and he said you should keep your pennies grouped together “as not to dilute the luck, kid”, so that’s where that came from.
