Money doesn't grow on trees
There are a ton of things you can do to bring in extra money to pay those bills and stretch your dollars.
My dad used to always say, "Money doesn't grow on trees." The fact is, nobody is going to just hand you money; you have to do something. No, wait a minute...they just might!
You may actually have free money hiding out there that you don’t
even know about! It’s true! Every state has an “Unclaimed Property” department which you can easily use to help you find money!
Start at www.unclaimed.org, the website of the National
Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators. Every state’s procedure for claiming money is different, so be sure to check every state where you have resided and worked, and follow their
guidelines. Amazingly enough, you may actually have forgotten about some pennies out there!
Hey, it’s worth a shot, and will only take you a few minutes online.
I found a small paycheck my husband forgot to pick up when he did seasonal work for a company as a teenager. (I would never forget to pick up a paycheck!) I also found some money
for my dad that was sitting in an old bank account he had closed years ago. (Yes, I gave it to him and didn’t keep it for myself.) You’ll need to produce certain documents to prove you are who
you claim to be before the money is released.
Good luck and happy hunting!
