$500 in cash. I hardly ever carry a purse. But the one I have that I take from time to time, I'm not careful with because it really doesn't have anything interesting in it (seriously, ear plugs, pitstick, notebook, not interesting things). My dd called from school wanting me to bring over some allergy meds, and I was about a block from her school, so I started searching thru my bag, hoping to find a bottle of something. I have a little zipper pocket on the side where I keep lots of bandaids and a full size tube of neosporin. And found 5 $100 bills. How on earth that's possible, I just don't know. I don't know why I have it, where it came from, what it's doing in there. but I NEED a new mattress, I think I found a way! Makes me wanna go check thru all my coats and bags!

sometimes, my honey gives me cash from his paycheck and I set it aside with something else in mind. I'm betting that he gave me this cash one day when we were out and I didn't want to lose it, so I zipped it in there, but since I don't depend on it, I didn't miss it either. I run a really tight budget, so I miss money if it's missing from the budget, but when it's been added in, I can misplace it and not miss it. It's perfect timing, which makes it feel like a gift from above. I won't be getting child support this month at all, and I count on that to keep my house running for my kids. This found money will be paying my house bills this month, with fingers crossed that child support will come thru next month.

Well OMG that's exciting. If my exclamation key worked on my laptop, I'd put in a million of them.
