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!!

I can't imagine it being very easy to track someone down for this. It's such a wild story!

This is for you:

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.

I'd sleep well after paying bills too. LOL!

This is for you to enjoy. :)

I would check the book first to see if there is a name on it, but otherwise, I'd sleep just fine after paying off some debt and putting the rest in savings with a little to spend for me, DH and DD.

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
