  • I would turn it in to the manager of the store. Most stores have a lost and found. I would have to do what is right and trust that the manager of the store is an honest person as well.

  • I would keep it because the people at the grocery would not announce anything about it and they would just pocket it themselves. Now it would be different if I found a wallet. My dtr was at a car wash and found a man's wallet on the vacuum and she opened it and it was loaded with money, credit cards, etc. But she pulled out his driver's license and took it to his home and he tried to give her a reward but she wouldn't take it. I was so proud of her. But finding money on the ground or in a store, I would keep it. I don't think you are doing anything wrong!!

  • manager. There's a good chance it belongs to another customer who is doing tehir shopping as well and when they get to the register they'll realize it's missing.

  • My pastor actually found $700.00 in an aisle at the grocery store. He went up front and hung around the registers watching people. A young couple started to pay for their groceries and he saw the look of panic on the woman's face. He walked up to them and asked them if they lost some money. She was in tears when she said yes, then she told him the amount she had lost. He handed it over to them. They had just gotten his paycheck cashed.
    I just wanted to share that story.
    If I had lost 60 bucks, I'd dearly hope that somebody would turn it in, so I would do the same.
