What would you do if say... you found $20,000? Seriously. What WOULD you do? A man in Massachusetts had such luck when he was digging through a dumpster, opened a book and wah lah, there it was! He isn't sleeping so well though because he wants to do the right thing but hasn't been able to find the rightful owner.
I would try to find the owner. If not I would keep the money and use it to do some home repairs. We need a new 6ft. privacy fence ours has had it. Those are expensive. I can think of some other things I could do around here. New carpet is one. Shoot, I wish I found that kind of money and no one claimed it. I don't think I could sleep either.
Honestly if I found that money in that manner I would check the book for a name but if there really wasn't anything I would keep it. I would pay off our car loan, our credit card debt, and go on a cruise.
