In the "Oh my fucking god" department

OMFG.

I just posted about some of the effects of clutter, according to feng shui. Then I puttered around, starting my final weekend load of laundry and putting away a few things I'd left out after clearing Area 2.10a, Bedroom, Little Shelf Next To Closet.

This was when I discovered one of the truly--I mean, really, truly--unexpected benefits of clearing.

Out of somewhere on that Little Shelf dropped a wad of bills. Currency. Money. Rolled up as if it had been stored inside...I dunno...maybe one of the lint-roller refills I gave away today? No idea. There it was, on the floor in front of my dresser.

Five hundred dollars.

OMFG.

I racked my brain. I think I might have a dim memory of someone repaying a debt in cash at some point a couple of years ago, when things were financially a bit better for me...maybe? No idea.

OMFG.

Also? I found my passport.

OMFG.

Go! Everyone! Clean your house! Seriously. It's amazing.

ETA: OMFG.

You found your passport?!? Where? The money thing is great! I found five bucks when I moved my bed yesterday :-) I've also located several other items that were previously MIA, during my house cleaning process. Take note of which bagua you found the money in - and see what happens in that area of your life!

You have to help me figure out the ba-gua thing.

And the passport was sitting right there, almost in plain view, on the Little Shelf Next To the Closet. I mean, I stand there every day and dry my hair. I saw it there, opened it (thinking it was the old expired one from years ago) and saw a) the decent passport photo I was so sorry to have to replace and b) the expiration date of 2013.

I think that shocked me more than the money. You know how we turned the damn house upside down looking for that thing. I believe the wad o' bills I found accurately represents what it cost me to replace that damned passport on an emergency basis, and they were both sitting on the same shelf.

It was so weird that it kept me awake half the night.

Re: omfg
Let's see...I looked up the Bagua and it seems that the money (and passport) were buried in the Chi'en area, "Helpful people, travel, father, head, gray). Kind of eerie.

One of the first things that came to mind when I'd absorbed the fact that I suddenly had five hundred bucks more than I thought I did was, "I should book a ticket right now on British Airways."
