Start saving those pennies you find on the ground.

That's what 73-year-old Otha Anders from Ruston, Louisiana did. He started saving his pennies more than 45 years ago after finding his first penny on the ground.

45 years and fifteen plastic water jugs later Anders said,

“I became convinced that spotting a lost or dropped penny was an additional God-given incentive reminding me to always be thankful,” said Anders, 73. “There have been days where I failed to pray and more often than not, a lost or dropped penny would show up to remind me.”
