It's Coffee Break time! Hot Topic: Jackpot in the Dumpster?

Posted by   + Show Post


Welcome to Mom to Mom's Tuesday Coffee Break!

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.

Check HERE for more to this story.

1. So what would you do if you found $20,000?

2. Do you think you could sleep until you found the rightful owner?

3. If that money became yours in the end how do you think you would spend it?

While you share your thoughts with us be sure to let us know what you
would like us to serve you!!

Be sure to check out these posts while you wait:


We hope you have fun and enjoy your time with us!!

 Lol.  I have one in king. It does sleep well. Oprah named it one of the best things of 2012.

I would sleep well all right, right on my nice new California King Size tempurpedic bed.

Wouldn't that be nice? So much could be done with that money!

Here's your latte. Enjoy!


Quoting Janet:

 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.

Quoting Janet:

 Chai latti would be nice please?

We sound similar! I'm honest like that too and I would definitely put some back to save. :) Here's a drink for you. I hope you enjoy it.


Quoting freshmom88:

First I would try to find the owner because I'm honest like that.

I could sleep. My life doesn't revolve around money. Would I secretly be hoping no owner showed up? Yes, but I would still want to be honest.

If I ended up keeping it I would pay down my student loans and save the rest. 20,000 isn't really much when it comes to student loans, mortgages, etc.

Paying bills is always a good thing! Thank you for sharing with us.

Here's a drink for you!


Quoting Thelmama:

Yes, my answers apply if I couldn't find the owner.  For me that is a given. LOL

I would take it to the Police Dept and tell them where it was found. If they told me to come back after such time then guess what I would and be thankful
