  1. Call me a micromanager, but at least it’s only on myself. I NEVER* leave money in my clothes pocket without taking it out by the end of the day. I NEVER* leave it in a coat pocket. Guess who does the laundry? me. I KEEP what I find in the machines and it’s not from my own wallet.

    *Almost Never ~ it happens maybe 2 or 3 times a year I leave money somewhere like described in the article.

    Its always nice to find unexpected money laying around. Clothing and furniture are the common spots for money to hide out. I think that the place that money can be found and will cheer you up the most is inside of a textbook. Right when you are getting ready for that stressful final exam and finding a 20 dollar bill should motivate you to study!

    Any money found in the washer becomes mine as a tip for doing other’s clothes! I rarely have cash around, but my husband had several cash payments last week so we have had cash laying around till I could go to the bank. Later I found $1 on the office floor which I must have dropped, but for the most part I know where my cash is and how much. And of course, the one time I had cash money for groceries, I left it in an unlocked car yesterday at the grocery store. Thankfully when I hit the register and realized I had left it in the car, no one had found it :)

    I’ve heard of broke people doing a thorough cleaning and found up to $800! How can someone forget that much money is beyond me.

    Also I would put look in bags and purses or really anything at op shops or second hand stores. You’d be surprised at how many people will leave change or notes in the secret pockets of a bag or forget that they left a 20 in the book they donated!
