What would you do with some unexpected $$?

I was out on my morning walk yesterday and I came across a little surprise...over $100 just lying on the sidewalk! I have posted signs, placed an ad and contacted the PD in an effort to reunite the owner with their cash.

Feeling like I have done my due diligence, I think I could spend/donate the money with a pretty clear conscience...so, with that said....if you had an extra $100 lying around, what products would you just HAVE to get?

I am thinking of getting a sleep bonnet (I know, I know...but I tried a DIY version last week that is too silly to mention and my curls were in pretty good shape when I woke up), a Denman, some flour sack towels, and some [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Curling-Custard-p-778.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-curling-custard]KCCC[/buylink]. My hair is growing out, so I don't have a lot of hair "stuff"...what else is a MUST for a curly girl's collection...accessories, products, tools?

    I found a good sleep bonnet at Walmart for $1.60 - they're not expensive.

    I'd get a Deva cut!!:toothy4:

    ooooh, a haircut! I didn't think about that..probably because I just got mine trimmed the other day. If Struttswife ever makes it out here to Cali I'll be one of the first in line!

    Thanks for the bonnet tip...might be worth a trip to WalMart!

    Shouldn't you wait for them to contact you first? I mean, give it a little time for the person to call you before you spend it, or you will defeat your whole purpose of putting up signs and everything!

    Congrats on finding the money!!! The things you already thought about getting sound good..

    Maybe some hair accessories too ? I love hair accessories.. so I would get all different color headbands, rhinestone barrettes, and hair clips.

    But sleep bonnets are dirt cheap. You can get them at Walgreens, Walmart, or even a Dollar Store for like less than 2 bucks..I have a gillion of them... whole drawer full.
