Since moving to our new home, I have not had the time to unpack and sort out the wanted from the unwanted things. Last night as I was doing this long overdue task I came across this bag of bills and receipts I have collected for almost 5 years. Oh gosh the dust was also 5 years thick. I placed the bag outside, ready to be thrown away.

My husband being a sentimental, was apprehensive about throwing them outright without checking. He was thinking there might be some books or whatever things that we could still use or has a sentimental value. So this morning, I went through all the receipts and envelops. To my surprise, guess what I found?




And ……..

And another……

Oh my gosh …what a blessing…what a surprise!

I’m glad I listened to my husband ^_^

  1. Wow! Lucky you! I get so happy too when I find money from bags i haven’t used in a while. We have a bunch of receipts waiting for be shredded. I’m so uncomfortable having my name and address out there on bills, esp. statement of accounts.

  2. I used to throw my receipts and bills. Your story make me read all your post and I am happy for you about this kind of blessing. This is one of thousand ways God send blessings to us!

  3. That happens to me a lot! Some of the more memorable ones were when I found a Php100 bill in the pocket of an old school bag 5 years after I graduated, and that time I saw a 7-year old letter from my best friend in an old pile of papers I had clipped together and put in a drawer. It’s fun discovering little treasures like those every once in a while 🙂

  4. that’s the kind of surprise that will make anyone smile.. As much as I can i try to follow what my husband tells me to do. I just refrain from telling him Honey you were right because the next words will be see I told you so

  5. That’s the best kind of surprise. What are you planning to do with the money? I would recommend you surprise your husband with a treat for you both. That way it becomes a double surprise. 😀

      1. You know what, my boyfriend’s house is full of gems like this. I want to do a haul from his stuff and who knows, I might have the same surprise as you got! 🙂

  6. Wow, you should really thank your husband for that 🙂 . Next time, i will also check before I throw away papers and envelopes and maybe I could also find a surprise (Hoping :-))

  7. Wow! This is great news! I also love finding money. Just recently, I cleaned my closet and found P100 somewhere. Money is money no matter the amount so I’m thankful for that 😀
