It Pays to Clean My Car!

This morning I was fishing around in the convenient holder, on my car door. It hadn't been cleaned out in quite a while, so that became my grueling task for the moment. A gnarled paper clip? Nope, that's garbage! A red pen without ink? Again, junk that was placed into the plastic bag. Finally, there was nothing left except for one shiny quarter&a penny! Who would believe that I'd get paid, for keeping my own car neat and clean? There's gold in them thar hills:) Photo:NOT MINE, Borrowed from Pixabay

My husband and I intentionally each keep around $20 in change in our vehicles. And with the loonie and toonies that we have (one and two dollar coins) that isn't difficult to do. But.....if I fin a coin anywhere after my husband drives my car, then I feel like you do and like I've found gold. The same thrill that I used to get when I'd search for change in his recliner or in the couch when we were first married.

Actually, I didn't clean the entire interior of my car. Usually, I do that in the spring.

There may be more under the seat? I found a candy in a plastic container in my couch. Does that count as a find.

We had a famous singer/music composer who bought a Rolls-Royce to use it as an ash-tray. When I saw your photo, I thought that you were using your car as a piggy bank. But only a quarter and a penny? You should have waited more!
