Windfall!

I have a basket hanging in the kitchen that I throw papers in that need to be saved. I rarely ever completely clean it out, usually just sort through a handful of stuff to make some room when it's full. Today I decided to sort through the whole thing and found a windfall at the bottom of the basket....a wad of cash. I couldn't believe my eyes when I counted out $105!!!!!!

No idea when I put it in there, I'm betting a couple years ago. No idea why it was there. I'm guessing that I had a lot of cash in my wallet for some reason and was going somewhere I didn't want to carry it. So I buried it in the basket and then forgot about it.

Then I needed move a power cord that was stuck under the couch....and found a gold earring I lost a while ago. Unfortunately, I think I sold it's mate as scrap gold back in December.

I'm on a roll....too bad the Powerball drawing isn't tonight...

Re: Windfall!

Since it is a windfall, will you do something fun with it?

Re: Windfall!

Yup....Springsteen ticket! Now I don't have to feel guilty about going to 2 shows when I'm unemployed. I got the first ticket using credit card points, but have been feeling like I should be responsible and not go to the second show.

Re: Windfall!

My good fortune continued into yesterday...I finally did my taxes and have a really, really nice refund coming back...almost $1700.

I had no idea, I usually manage my taxes so they come out within a hundred dollars give or take. But I had a lot of odd financial events last year and it looks like I overcompensated. WooHoo!
