Okay, I'm looking everywhere because there's no point in wasting even one little penny these days. It turns out I found a bunch of money I had no idea was hiding around my house. Here's where I found some:

Under the bed and in the laundry hamper (loose change and bills)

Under the couch cushions

Boyfriend’s blue jeans’ pockets (he had forgotten, some of it went through the washer)

eBay - OMG. Have you any idea how easy it is to sell on eBay? I could be nuts but I sold a bunch of weird stuff on eBay and it was fun. An old doll, a first edition children’s book (got a lot for that one), an old coin. Other ideas might be: vintage jewelry, collectables (comics, Starbucks teddy bears, old video games, vinyl recordings), real jewelry, lamps, pet beds, electronics, tools, extra tiles or wallpaper if you’ve recently renovated. Here’s the thing about eBay: you don’t need to buy any books on how to sell on eBay. The instructions on the site are easy to follow, and it’s easy to set up an account with them.

Yard sales, garage sales

Craig’s List - Again, it’s so easy to set up an account with them and sell stuff. Craig’s list is best for local sales, where someone can come and pick up the item - so furniture, rugs, and car parts would be good here.

I put a $20. bill in my car glove compartment when I bought the car six years ago, and promptly forgot it was there. Do you have places you’ve hidden cash?

Amazon - You can sell your good-condition used books on Amazon. Again, just go to there website and they tell you have to do it.

Here’s a good one: I went through each of my credit card statements line by line, and found two items that were recurring charges for something I forgot I had signed up for. So I immediately cancelled those things, and voila - more cash in my pocket.

Now I need to know: What have I forgotten here? Where do you guys look for hidden cash around your home? For more money and abundance ideas, check out my new website at [Link Removed]
