Last weekend I was scouring for loose change around the house then out of nowhere, there they are, little circles of happiness. But, the amount I got was not enough to buy me the bread I wanted (Don’t ask me why I just took cash from my wallet). So I searched for some more and I was not disappointed. You see, it’s easy to find free money if you know where to look. Here are some high probability places to find loose change or if you’re lucky actual paper bills.
Sofa and chairs
This is where most my happy little circles come from when I’m in need. Many coins and change slip off and wedge themselves between pillows and creases. When you’re in need of extra cash, you can probably feel through the sofa and you’ll find some coins – or old candies and chocolate.
Old wallets and bags
Here’s another staple in my search for loose coins and money. If you’re like me who likes to hide extra cash in secret slits of wallets and bags, then you’re in for a treat. Sometimes, that emergency money gets forgotten. And when you’re in need of quick cash, just open old bags and wallets you might just get surprised at the cash you can get. I once found 2,000 pesos (around $50) from old bags and wallets. That’s no loose change!
Under an around your car seat
Another high probability place to find loose coins and bills is under the car seat. Just like your sofa, it catches things that fall from your pants. With this in mind, don’t be surprised at what you may find. Just be hopeful and pray for extra cash or coins.
Near vending machines
Here’s another extremely “wealthy” spot. Vending machines especially underneath them and at the back play host to coins that roll from your hands never to be found again. Well, that’s where you come in. But don’t push vending machine to the side every time you see one. Take a look around and at the back first. But when you’re really desperate, no one is stopping you – except probably the guard on duty.
Just like vending machines, payphones are great places to find loose change. Some people will not even look for coins they’ve dropped so they’re actually giving you reason to wait near pay phones. Please, don’t be a stalker near pay phones.
Around stops of public transportation
Public transport stops are also great places to score some free cash. People tend to drop coins around these areas so keep your eyes wide open and look down. But if you clearly see that the money came from another commuter be kind enough to give it back. Don’t wait for the person to get on the ride and call dibs on the coins – that’s just nasty.
We’ve all had experiences when we are a few coins short. Finding free money when you badly need it seems like a blessing from above. If you know where to find loose coins and change, you’ll always look down for some free cash.
