Found money

A friend of mine took me to dinner last week. She was feeling flush because that day she had spring cleaned and discovered lying around the house—in the shape of a few notes but mostly loose change—just over £75. She and her husband aren’t slovenly, but clearly they don’t have as much time to tidy up as they thought.

What’s the most money you’ve ever found lying around your own house?

I don't think foreign money counts, though.

It probably does if it's 75 pounds' worth.

Which a couple of hundred $US now pretty much amounts to.

I tend not to change it back as I go over there every year. But I had forgotten I had it.

I knew where it had come from - I used to be a club treasurer and was supposed to pay it into the bank, but at the time assumed it lost and made it up myself. So it was all mine when I found the envelope three years later!

I did once find £50 sitting in a book on the shelf. I had put it there to save for bills and forgotten about it. It doesn't beat the guy I worked for though. He seriously had £980 in change in a bowl in his kitchen. I cried!

It's a trifling sum, but only yesterday I cashed in a bag of loose change to the tune of £34. We bought a bottle of gin, a rolling pin, a packet of lard and a bottle of wine. We had a great time.
