What's the most money you've ever found while doing your family's laundry?

I just did about 2 weeks worth of laundry (for 2 adults and 5 kids...ugh) and I hit the motherlode. I found $30.01 in the laundry! Has to be a record for me. It's all mine now. I didn't even tell my husband I found it because he'd want his money back. He should learn to empty his pockets before throwing his stuff in the wash.

  • I once found $100 bill in a pair of pants I hadn't worn in a long time. I wore them early in my pregnancy, but one day decided they didn't fit anymore, took them off and put them in the closet about half way through the day. After I had the baby and worked off some of the weight, I wore them again. When I washed them, I found the bill int the pocket.

  • There is a rule, that whoever finds money in the washer or dryer gets to keep it. I found a $20 one time and was thrilled. LOL Mostly its just change though.

  • $200. But in truth, I knew it was there and it was mine.

    I'd cashed a check and tucked the money in my jeans instead of my wallet,for some DUMB reason. Then tossed the jeans in the wash without checking my pockets.

    Series of stupid events....

  • A friend's husband announced that all the money she found in the laundry was hers... because the kids were notorious for leaving crap in their pockets. About 2 weeks later she picked up a wad of more than $700, soaking wet in the washer.

    After a brief struggle, she did keep it, 'cause he was pretty mad... but it was his rule, so... ha ha!

  • Usually nickles and dimes, but once, I found a cell phone! My step-son did not check his pockets and neither did I. =/
