??? Free Money ???

I know it just doesn't sound real, does it? However, an exciting thing happened tonight while I was searching on-line for college scholarships for my oldest son.

On our Tennessee state web-site, I came across two websites for Unclaimed Property Searches. I've heard about these sites in the past and, no doubt, held my breath while I searched for our names in hopes that somewhere there was some unclaimed treasure awaiting our discovery.

Well tonight I got a BIG surprise. My husband's name DID show up on one of the searches for two unclaimed property entries! Hurray! One is for between $10-$100 and the other is for $100 or more. Now all I have to do is complete the claim forms and submit them to receive our lost property.

Can you imagine how excited I am? You know me ~ I get excited about Walmart freebies or a free gum sample!

So if you get a chance, just stop by these sites and type your name in ... and your husband's name ... and your maiden name ... and your mother's name ... well you get the idea. You just never know!

Missing Money is a nationwide search. Our names did not appear on this search.

NAUPA is a list of state maintained web-sites. We ran our names in each state where we've lived in the past. And from a state link on this site is where my lucky husband's name appeared!

Blessings often come from the most unexpected places, don't they?

Have fun,

WAHOO!! You have to feel so happy when things like that happen. To answer your question, my Sunbonnet Sue patterns came from a website called And I would love to have my name on one of your dolls someday. I so understand the time constraints of life. Somedays we just need a few more hours. Hugs to you, Julie

Thanks for the link, I just tried the missing money one, and my husband didn't come up, but I did! Apparently the dept of licensing owes me between 25 and 50 bucks! I also saw that my mother in law has money coming back from 2 places. Then I tried my mom and dad and both of them have money coming to them as well! I'll file the claim and see if it comes through!
