Ever since the time I didn't catch the package of kool-aid left in a pair of pants before tossing them into the washer, I have been very careful about checking pockets.
This week doing laundry I have pulled from my children's pockets:
$5 bill (which I kept)
The $5 bill was a bonus. Usually I only get loose change. I use to get quite a bit of change each week until the kids realized that I keep whatever I find in the laundry. Now I usually only get a penny or two, once in a while a quarter.
PS (added 5/31) Also found in laundry:
half of a popsicle stick
