How many times have you washed laundry, cleaned under the cushions, or vacuumed only to find loose change? Where does it come from? Why don't we miss it when we lose it? I watched an episode of Clean House (I know, but I can't help it) and when they cleared out the house they found over $6,000 in cash and loose change. I don't know about you, but I don't have that kind of money to forget about. My oldest son finally moved out and while packing his boxes, again, money and change started falling out of drawers, and clothes. We found more under the bed, and in the closet. There was enough for at least a month worth of groceries.........yes I did.....He voluntarily contributed back to his 21 years of non-stop eating.
Money is still popping up around the house, so I have figured out what I am going to do starting today July 30, 2010 and ending July 30, 2011. Every coin I find laying around the house is going to go into the "Da Cha Ching" Jar. On July 30, 2011, I plan on counting the money I have collected and then I am going to match that amount and give it to a charity of our choice.
(We Might Need A Bigger Jar)
I will update often to let you know how much we are collecting. This will be posted on the Cha Ching page at http://victoriasvoice44.blogspot.com/p/freebies.html.
So far as of today $ 1.32
