Lift a Couch … Find a Fortune!

Have you checked under your couch recently? You might give it serious consideration if you happen to be working with a tight budget as prices of just about everything seem to be rising on a weekly basis. A nickel here, a quarter there, and soon you have some real money.

The former Sands Hotel in Atlantic City closed last November and will be demolished later this year to make way for a brand new gambling destination. Those 2,350 slot machines have been sitting there for three decades. You’ve got to believe that of the millions of visiting gamblers, gleeful winners and frustrated losers alike, a few must have accidentally dropped a coin or two that eventually rolled under a machine. The workers removing the 2,350 machines anticipated just such a find as they began their project. What they didn’t envision was exactly how many coins slipped away obviously unnoticed. Final total … a whooping $17,193.34!!!!

That’s it for now … I’ve got to go move some furniture!
