I have balled money up, and I had to make it straight again.. I have even swept up pennies, that were still good. I did this about 20 years ago. But, now, I hold on to any pennies that I may get. What about you? Have you thrown money in the trash and realized that you did?

No, I've never done that myself. But I do recall one Christmas back when I was probably nine or ten years old (1995-1996). My family, immediate and extended, were doing the whole family get-together fun. A relative had given me ten dollars and somehow we had missed it in the envelope and my mother threw the envelope in the fire with the $10 bill with it.

I am lucky not have this happen to me. But I have many times had my note money washed in the pocket of my trousers.

That's funny you would mention that. Cause a couple years back, I was dying my spouse's work pants a deep blue and later found a blue five dollar bill in his pockets! Can you imagine. American money is green. I think I spent the money anyway. It was five dollars. No way I was going to let that go to waste.

Yes, I have and luckily I've retrieved it. Once, years ago, I remember washing some bills, but, it came out okay. Now that's what I call laundering money! LOL! Purrs, Catwoman=^..^= & Mija

[i]Hi cream, I haven't tried that but I always experienced washing pants and realized I have some money there! IN my College time, it will always bring excitement because most of the time, I will find paper money inside my pocket![/i]

I have not that I know of, but my wife has. My wife's parents gave her a $100.00 for Christmas one year. My wife through away all the wrapping paper and tissue paper and stuff. The next day she remembered the $100 bill, but she remembered that she never seperated the bill from the rest of the stuff, she should have put it in her purse right away or in a drawer or something, the $100 bill was nowhere to be found, and she realized that she must have thrown it in the garbage. She was so upset about losing money and she looked through the garbage as best she could, but still could not find it.
