What's In Your Wallet

We have an interesting story about "found money" this week. Dan Devore of Orlando, Florida made a video of his then 7-year-old son's visit to a dentist to share with friends and family. The boy's dental surgery required some heavy duty medication — and the effects are hilarious. That portion of the video went viral on YouTube, and, through an advertising partnership, Devore found thousands of dollars pouring in.

Dan Devore is a realtor, and with the real estate market sagging in Florida, the money couldn't have come at a better time. His story made us wonder how many others have found creative ways to pick up a few extra bucks in these lean economic times.

Post your stories of how you've managed to cope since the bottom fell out of the market last year. Maybe yours will help someone in dire economic straits find a way to solve their troubles.
