I just HAVE to share this with you!!!
This morning, as my oatmeal apple pancakes were cooking on the griddle, I perused some of my favorite frugal blogs. One of them shared a link to another gal's blog with a refried beans recipe that I thought looked interesting. Something else on her blog caught my eye: Frugality Tip #9: Check for Unclaimed Money Owed You. I clicked on it, read the information about how unclaimed property exists in all 50 of the United States, then clicked on the safe and legit NAUPA link. At first, I entered my husband's name for our current state. Then it occurred to me to enter his name in the LAST state we lived in. Eureka! There is $130 in unclaimed cash, due to an overpayment on the truck we purchased waaaaaaaaay back in 1999. I clicked on the claim number, entered the required information, and printed the claim form. All I have to do now is make a photo copy of my husband's driver's license, and a document that shows proof he lived at the address appearing in the claim. Once I get all of that into an envelope, I will mail it off, and wait to receive our $130.
You never know, you too might have some unclaimed property! It only takes a few moments of your time to search, and you probably won't have any trouble thinking of ways to spend or save your "found" money. I'm thinking "DATE NIGHT(S)!"
