Vent: I just lost $50

I got $50 for my B-day and I put it away in a "Safe" place & now I cannot find it! I can't remember if I put it back in my wallet and I don't think/remember I used it, I've had it in the back of my mind "when I need it, I have it." Now it's GONEEEEEE. I am so pissed.

  • Say a prayer to Saint Anthony. Evenif you're not religious, things seem to turn up when you ask him for help. I can't even tell you how many times money did or I think went missing. Hope it turns up!

  • Ah man! I hate it when stuff like that happens. Maybe you'll find it someday when you really need it and it'll be a nice surprise.

  • Damn! I'm sorry!
    Stop thinking about it for a while, it'll come back to you.
    I did the same thing with the money for the electric bill once. I stuck it somewhere "safe" so we wouldn't accidently spend it before the bill came in the mail. The bill came and I had no idea where I put it! It got paid three days late because it took me so long to remember.
    Good luck remembering!

  • It probably is in a place you never would think to look for it. Sometimes back tracking your steps can help you to figure out where it might be.

  • Have you looked in pockets of seasonal clothes--I ALWAYS manage to find $5 or $10 stuffed in a pocket of a pair of jeans/shorts, a spring jacket or sweater I don't wear often. Look AROUND your "safe place" too!

  • A friend of mine often tells her little one where she hides her spare cash incase she forgets... This way when she's looking for it she can ask the kid... My mother on the other hand writes these types of things down for this reason exactly :)
