I’m not gonna lie and say it’s common to find $100 bills while decluttering, but it’s also not completely uncommon to find some cash. Yesterday I did find this $100 bill I had no clue I was missing.
I’ve also found $10 and $20 bills while decluttering before (and have clients who have done the same). Yet that’s been over the course of about three years.
I’ve found other things that were super exciting to me, like $10 worth of postage stamps (I love writing letters). But pretty much everyone gets excited about finding money! And I really didn’t think that would happen for me because I’m not the type to intentionally hide money from myself.
If finding $100 bills is your motivation for decluttering, you probably won’t stick with it for very long.
However, as I’ve been writing my book, I realized that I find more value in decluttering than even $100 a day. Meaning, even I feel someone offered me $100/day to quit decluttering, I wouldn’t do it. Especially right now while I’m in the process of moving!
And if you can gain that mindset of really valuing a clutter-free life, you’ll also be able to get rid of a lot of stuff… and maybe even find a hundred dollars along the way.
