After seeing everyone else's "found money" totals for 2015, I got inspired to actually track mine this year!
What am I considering "found money"? Here's my list (subject to change of course!)
Loose change collected from our house and elsewhere (ie sidewalk)
Any money that happens to be "found" in the washer or dryer (if you left it in your pockets, all bets are off!)
Cans/Bottles Return money
I have a separate checking account in my name only (I used to use it as a place to keep track of my "fun money" way back when) that has a very anemic balance currently. I don't have the statement readily available (translation: I am too lazy to get up and grab it) but I know the balance is under ten dollars. So, this seems like the easiest place to let it all collect for the year.
At the end of every month, I will do a quick update post on how much I accumulated for the month. I am actually pretty excited about seeing how well I can do with this!
What do you considered "found" money? How do you like to track yours?
