Need money - Clean your house Pt. 2

December 12th, 2009 at 06:40 pm

As I reported a couple of weeks ago, we've been working on some house cleaning lately. The first round turned up some monetary rewards by finding stuff to sell on ebay.

This week, cleaning actually turned up money. Wednesday night, I was cleaning in the basement. I came across a file box of papers from when my wife and I ran the Girl Scout cookie sale for our daughter's troop 3 years ago. I realized there was no reason to still have that stuff and started pulling everything out to recycle. In one of the folders, I found a $20 bill. I'm certain that we handed over all money due to the troop so this $20 probably belonged to us for some reason, but I have no idea why it would have been in that file. So the next day, I stopped at the Girl Scout office and told them the story and to give the money to her troop (she's not a scout anymore).

Today, my daughter found a $20 bookstore gift card and $8 cash plus some change while cleaning.

So that's almost $50 turned up in a few days. Get rid of your clutter and get organized. It may pay off more than you realize.

    Woohoo, I love entries like this one! Years ago, when I was about 14, I found $50 in my bedroom trash can, which was simply and shamefully overflowing. Oh yeah, you can clean up when you clean up!

    I love how you gave $20 away to a good cause and then your daughter found $20 Smile If I pay attention this is how it almost always happens to me to, assuming I give with a clear heart.
