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!

  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. It’s really nice that you have listened more to your hubby, right? 😀 Great for you! You’ll never know what you will stumbled on those papers – checking them again won’t harm anyway haha! 🙂

  3. 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!

  4. Never happened to me before, but that surely brightened up your day.
    I’d take it as a literal expression of “may pera sa basura” :))

  5. 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 🙂

  6. 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

  7. 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! 🙂

  8. 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 :-))

  9. 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 😀
