21. Go to Barnes and Noble and order a book on some obscure, funky topic...

...an historical mystery, biography of someone who I know, but no one I've ever met has ever heard of...or maybe a Templars-discovered-America sort of book. Entertaining, but you have to keep your built-in shit detector on overload. Something cool like that...though with the new owners, God knows how long B & N will have books like that...

50. Rice, pinto beans, toilet paper, peanut butter, canned fruit, luncheon meat, tuna, ....

First, I'll get 2 '$5.00 off if you spend at least $25.00' coupons from the local Dollar General Store by buying a couple of items, on two separate occasions, that costs less then $1.00.

I'll then double check my inventory and come up with a shopping list. Then, I'll go to the DG website and create two shopping lists that each contain items that cost in total just a few cents over $25.00. That Saturday, when I can redeem the coupons, I'll go into the store and purchase the items on my first list and put them into the car. I'll go back in to buy the items on the 2nd list. I should have enough then left over to buy two 32 count packages of 16.9 oz bottled water.

73. Years ago my wife and our children and I were hiking along the Eel River in Northern California...

... when we found some money in a swirling pool of water. I don't remember the exact amount, maybe sixty odd dollars.

As we were returning from our hike we gave the money to a homeless guy who was living under the bridge near where we'd parked our car.

The best money I ever found was in a big dictionary my grandmother had given me. My wife and I were frequently struggling financially when she was in graduate school and we were out of money and nearly out of food.

I was helping my wife edit a paper and I went to look up a word in the dictionary. (We had a computer, but our primitive word processor didn't have the word my wife wanted.) As I was turning the pages I discovered a $100 bill my grandmother had slipped into it years before.

We spent it on groceries.
