A garage sale dilemma

Say you go garage saling and you buy a pair of kids shorts. You take them home, wash them and as you're folding them, you find money in the pocket. Several folded bills, let's say. What do you do with the money?

a) jump for joy--it's your lucky day!
b) return the money
c) other

Also, does the amount of money you find matter? Obviously I said bills here, so I'm not talking $500 nor $.50.

Talk to me...what do you think?

Let me ask you a few questions. ;)

a. do you remember where you bought them?

b. how long has it been?

c. what would you like someone to do if you had sold the shorts?

I don't know, Angela. In theory, the seller should make sure all the items are ready for selling and that's that. But what does your heart say?

If I remembered where the house was that I bought the shorts from I would probably take it back to them. However, if it was just a dollar or two I would most likely not worry about it. Not much help, am I?
