Your sofa probably has some loose change under the cushions. This couch had $40,000 in it.
Three New Paltz, N.Y., roommates found piles of cash in a couch they picked up at a thrift shop for just $20, CBS New York reported.
Reese Werkhoven, Cally Guasti and Lara Russo were watching a movie together last month when they felt something weird in the cushions of their couch, which they bought at a Salvation Army about two months before.
Curious, Werkhoven stuck his hand under the sofa’s arm. The State University of New York junior pulled out a plastic envelope. Inside: $700 in $20 bills.
“I almost peed,” Werkhoven told the Little Rebellion, a student-run news site at SUNY New Paltz. “The most money I’d ever found in a couch was, like, fifty cents. Honestly, I’d be ecstatic to find just $5 in a couch.”
The three began digging through the rest of the couch. They found several more envelopes containing $40,000 total.
