What would you have done?
If I came across it and it looked hopelessly lost to me I would have picked it up and kept it.
If I thought I could reunite it with it's rightful owner I would do that.
If I was having qualms about it then I would toss it into a donation kettle for some worthwhile cause.
If I was not having qualms about it I would treat it as a sign from above and spend it on some small treat.
For me the answer is never the same, I just muddle along doing what feels right at the time!
