I found $80 that I had stashed in my car sunvisor 6 months earlier and forgot about.

I purposely hide money around in my house. (I know, it's like a squirrel)
I put $5 or $10 here and there, because I always seem to find it when I need it.
I've also got a basket that I throw money (change, dollars...) into, and then it goes to the summer vacation with the kids. Last year we collected $473.56 that we used for Vegas (not the gambling, for the kids' fun). We're doing it again, since the trip is in July. I'm very tempted to see how much there is, but I know I'll borrow from it if I do!

isn't it amzing how the change adds up? i'll clean out my purse and end up with $20 in quarters. i just scoop it out!
lol, my BF/fiance lays in my bed and watches tv, the simpsons of course, and change ALWAS falls out of his pockets. we have a policy that anything that falls out of his pocket is mine. sometimes i won't notice the coins, and i'll go to sleep. the next day i'll be strolling along and a dime or a quarter will just drop off of me. it sticks to me and warms to my temp so i don't notice it. i guess i'm a money magnet, lol!

Well, I usually find money by using my metal detector

Although, I did find a $20 once, in a ditch during a cleanup project. I've also found a $10 in a parking lot.

I've heard about folks, using a metal detector on a beach, and finding $20's, $50's, even $100's floating in the water. Drug deal gone bad?
