    Show Me The $$$$$

    I found $275 while cleaning out a bunch of draws in my house. It had to be there for at least 10 years. I couldn’t believe it and I still can't.

    It's nice finding money in your pocket

    or in public. I found a twenty dollar bill in a grocery store parking lot! I don't like the power of money that much, but it's always nice finding a couple of dollars a few times.

    I Thought He Saw Me

    I was walking to, at the time they just came out with those money kiosk machines in the casino's in Washington state. I had to get a another ticket, as I didn't want to use the $750.00 ticket I just won. About fifteen feet from the kiosk I see what I think is dollar bill on the...

    ...in Clothes That I Haven't Worn In a While.

    I just now put on a pair of pajama pants to get warm, and put my hand in my pocket, and found $3.00. I love when that happens, but wish that it happened more often, and that it was more than a few dollars.

    Loose Change

    My Dad and I were clearing my brother's bedroom this morning and every so often we came across a loose penny or pound lying on the floor or underneath various things. In the end we had accumulated enough money to buy ourselves some Maltesers to celebrate that we'd completed his...

    Find Money All The Time...

    I constantly look down for $$ and today as I was leaving a parking garage I found a shiny $1.00 coin on the ground where you enter your ticket for payment. This is not the first time I've found loot there. I pick up pennies, anything; then I store them in my Green Lantern piggie...

     Earlier in the year, when I was pretty far in dept, I found a purse with £300 pounds cash in it.   I was so, so broke at the time... I really could have used that money. But I handed it in, every penny.  For my honesty the owner sent me a cheque for...

    Small Change Adds Up!!

    I like to ferret away pockets of change- eighty cents here, fifty cents there, rarely much more than a dollar in any one place and my pennies go straight into my (fish free!!) gallon fishtank. But I'll put it places in my room and forget about it for the longest time, and of...

    My Green Lantern Piggy Bank

    It's been over a year, but my Green Lantern Piggy Bank is almost full from coins that A) I found on the streets B) from loose change I had. Just a few days ago I found a $5.00 bill in a parking lot, my best find in a long time! When I was a boy in the late 60s, my young uncle...
