"Found Money"

A local TV station had a story about Unclaimed Property. I didn't think we had any but I looked up all the names in our family and sure enough. My name came back as having money waiting for me.
I filled out the forms and today I got a check for $15.37. Not a lot of money but for 42 cent postage stamp and a little time, it's gas money. :)

Make sure you check your state's unclaimed property lists, you never know what you might find!

Hi! I just saw an article about this in Reader's Digest, you are so on par with saving money. Here's the site to find your state, look up each place you have lived!
Also, look up your relatives and let them know! I looked up my grandma's name and sure enough she's got money, so I'll tell her!
