Frugal Tuesday Tip - Found Money

I'm going to be straight with you I don't have any insightful tips to share this week.  I did want to mention though how proud I am of my husband sometimes.  Last week he was working outside in a parking lot when he just happened to spot a paper certificate with Upromise on it.  He didn't know what it was, but he knows we help fund our kids' 529 accounts through Upromise, so he picked it up.  I researched it and was able to enter the code on our account for a small contribution.  Now that was a good parking lot find!  I have heard of others scanning Walgreens parking lots for register rewards, but I've never had that kind of luck yet. 

What about you have you ever found anything good on the ground in a parking lot? 


  1. Stopping by from Stumble Tuesday; My Post is How To Make Chicken Chili
    Nothing I can think about so that must mean no. I will have to think about a good deed done lately :-)

  2. Actually, no, never found anything...but, to be honest, I'm never really looking. LOL.

    Stumbled you...my post is:

  3. Hubby found a $50 bill once - yes we ARE lucky :)

  4. I found a quarter the other day and yes I picked it up. :)

  5. Only cents.. hahah

    I stumbled you, my post is "The Power of Mind" found in this link - http://www.lifeascending.info/the-power-of-mind/

  6. All of the parking lots here in Pasco are scoured by the destitute long before I can get my grubby hands on them.

  7. I haven't in a long time.

    I stumbled you. My post is http://booksyourkidswilllove.blogspot.com/2011/05/summer-reading-programs.html

  8. I think the best thing I have ever found was $47 in front of my apartment building once. I was so broke and had just prayed for some help - and there it was. I was really bad and kept it - it was my ticket to get to work that week on the bus. I also found $20 another time on my walk home from work - another time I was seriously broke. God does provide doesn't he? I'll give you a stumble =D

    Love your blog! I'd love a stumble back (pick which you want to do)
