It’s kind of fun to find things around the house that were left by the previous owners. So far, we’ve found a couple things worth mentioning.
This basket was left in one of the bedroom closets way up high on the back of a shelf where you couldn’t see it from the floor. It looks like the previous owners liked to travel, and since she also liked to smoke like a chimney, collecting match books made sense!
Also, when we pulled one of the forced air furnace return vents off the wall, we found it so clogged with garbage that there’s no way air was getting through it. Mostly it was clogged with papers, including a couple of $10 bills!
After I found the first two bills, I secretly started hoping that the previous owner had stuffed millions of dollars into the vent system and that I was about to discover the motherload. But nope. Just the $20. I’ll take it.
