Get up early and walk your dog in strip malls and pick up the change you find on the ground - especially at gas stations and fast food restaurants.

Look for green money, too. Look behind pictures in frames, between pages of old books, on the underside of drawers and shelves, and between old dishes as a cushion. A friend once found $50 in a box of tablecloths someone gave her. Look in hidden nooks and crannies in purses, knapsacks, and luggage Look in yard sale jean pockets, old luggage, and above ceiling tiles. People hide money and forget about it to the finder's profit.

I volunteer in a thrift shop and found money in all of these places in donated stuff (not the tiles or boxes). It all goes to the shop, of course.

Check under your car seats, in pockets of coats and jackets, as well as in the furniture for loose change. You might be surprised how much you will find!

Forget phone booths and soda machines! When I was a kid in the 70's, we had a huge high school and football team. The bleachers were huge. The morning after a big game, we would scour under the bleachers and find several dollars in dropped, irretrievable change from fans. Forget my $1 allowance!
