While working with my organizing clients for almost 12 years, I have found many interesting items.
Here are just a few:
2 living in a garage and 1 in a living room. Yes, the living room.
Thousands of Dollars
The largest find was $5,600 of dividend checks that had never been cashed. I found them in a shoe box under a senior's bed, who was recently moved to a memory loss assisted living home.
A $20,000 Gold Rolex Watch
It was in a plastic zippered case that came with a piece of luggage. The owner wanted to donate the case. I always check inside. The client was very happy when I pulled out the watch from a hidden pocket. He thought he had lost it.
A Diamond Ring
A senior client was convinced that someone had stolen the diamond ring from his home. I found it under a bureau when I moved it. An innocent person was exonerated.
2 Pizzelle Machines
Just last week, I found 2 pizzelle machines for a client. They were lost in a chef’s pantry. Yes, she needs both machines when making numerous pizzelles. My Grandmother Gelardi made pizzelles paper thin. I can still smell them. Yum!
Photo of my Mom and Dad
A photo that I had never seen before of my parents when they were young and dating. I found it while cleaning out my Aunt’s home to prepare it for sale. What a treasure.
You never know what you will find when you organize!
