Unless I had fallen on hard times, I would do like @SeaMaiden and just put it in my wallet.

I would trade it in for smaller bills like all $5 and keep them aside for donations here and there like the Vets for Forget Me Nots and Poppy Day and the little church pots for special donations etc. It seems summer time is also Tag Day for hospital and Humane Society too.

Since I have to spend it right away and on myself, I'd head to Marshall's.

I don't consider money I found on the street a windfall or lucky find, that's money someone lost. I could not enjoy anything I bought with it and it's really not mine to donate. I would have to turn it into the police, tell them where I found it and hope the owner calls the police station.

I would have a Bradford watermelon well packaged, they're delicate, and shipped overnight to me.

I would go for a hot stone massage.  Love them, but it is a RARE treat for me.

That is a good intention, @blackhole99 , and I would agree with you if it were something that had any kind of personal ID on it.

I would donate it to my  summer of 2020 Hawaii trip.

 

I have a jar going with change and bills for that purpose.
