8 Signs Money Is Coming Your Way

8 Money SignsSometimes the stars are aligned just right: You're running late to a meeting, and the bus comes just in time; you didn't know that the sandwich place doesn't take credit cards but find ten dollars in your pocket; the weather clears up 30 minutes before your barbecue is scheduled to start.

While we don't recommend hinging your finances solely on luck (unless you're like this unusual mother/daughter pair), an unexpected windfall or bonus wouldn't hurt.

Could You Have Unclaimed Cash?

Don't rely on luck to find out!

To help you forecast when Lady Luck will be in town, we've compiled a list of eight unusual signs that good fortune is around the corner. (Want more money superstitions? Check out our list.)

You're going to start treating brown spiders a whole lot better ... click on the first image below to start the slide show. And for even more good luck, there's a giveaway at the end!

    Also if your palm itches, you have money coming your way!

    • Yes, the itchy palm! I keep getting that, where’s my money?! lol

  • Awww….it’s old wives tales :(

  • How stupid of me to assume that a financial site for women would be good enough to be taken seriously. The bootcamps were pretty good even if they lacked depth, but this crap is worthless.

      I totally agree, it’s disappointing.  Makes it seem like they’re run out of good advice.  This column only makes sense on April 1.

  • Disappointed in this one, LV.  I would MUCH prefer an article suggesting things I can do to improve my wealth rather than ways to read the signs to see if it’s “coming my way.”

  • Julie,

    Its obvious these things are not true and they are superstitions. Its just a fun article. I don’t think you guys are being fair in being so harsh with your comments to LV. Things are really hard for a lot of people right now and this is an article with a more light hearted side. Its intended for a positive purpose, its for fun. LV is allowed to try and lighten things up a little. 

  • Lol, that was very entertaining. Thanks!

    I’m with Jenna–tell me how I  can make more money in my job, my finances or my spare time business, or how to write a book to make extra money.  I’m not interested in signs of money in the future.  William B.

    Did everyone lose their sense of humour? Lighten up people. jesus.

    What a stupid article! Where I live, brown spiders are usually brown recluses,  and it means you need an exteriminator NOW.

  • When you play a one-armed bandit, and then you see three clusters of cherries lined up in a row, money is coming your way! When you find yourself with an aching back and a great view of the mall ceiling, thanks to the unmarked wet floor, money is coming your way! When you decide that scruples are for schmucks, money is coming your way!  :-)

    Hmm… can’t say this wasn’t interesting to read. I might have been more intrigued, though, if we looked at what money beliefs or superstitions get in the way of our making smart financial choices. Maybe in a future article?

    the bugs thing has totally been happening to me all summer! crickets all the time coming in our apartment and we’ve had lots of spiders! grasshoppers always outside our doors! but, then it is summer. . . so the grasshoppers thing is normal.

    but, are going to soon be moving to live in with my parents so my husband and I can finish college. we recently had our car totaled and used insurance check to fix it. well, the bank that has our car loan is the leinholder. we were planning on using the rest of the money from the check to move, but apparently the bank gets any insurance proceeds and we have to use the money to pay down the loan.

    so, my husband came up with the idea of having us get new tires and get the traction fixed on the car (the light keeps going off on the traction system). our banker agreed to use money from the insurance proceeds because it would raise the value of the car. so, after we do that, the rest of the money will be used to pay on our car loan.

    then, we are going to cash out our IRA (and unfortunately take a penalty on it) and use the rest of the money to pay off the rest of the car loan. that way, we will OWN our car before we move. we will also use the money to pay off back-rent and other bills we need to take care of here before moving.

    that way, we won’t have to worry about anything we owe in the current state we live in. AND our credit score will go up because we will have the car loan paid off. on top of that, our insurance payments will go DOWN because we will own our car.

    we hope to get jobs as soon as we can when we get there. for now, my husband will be claiming unemployment and we can use the money to pay off on my credit cards & to help my parents pay bills.

    so, just when we thought we wouldn’t be able to move for a better future, life threw us an life-preserve!

    the only bad thing is that we will have to start saving up for retirement from scratch, but we will be close to being debt-free!

    I think that I am looking for a website for women that will help us out by teaching us the strategies that men already know. A website that will help women get ahead in the game financially, a website that will help us learn about how to buy a house, teach us the difference between mutual funds and stocks, etc… I am at the point where I think you are just writing anything for the sake of just writing anything. I already have enough emails and spam in my in-box…If I want to be entertained, I’ll watch a comedy on TV; if I want to learn about taking charge of my financial life, I guess I’ll have to go somewhere else…

    We are such a nation of whiners and the offended. Come on get real. If one doesn’t like it do not continue to read. Offer constructive criticism! Why do we feel the need to constantly show our “superiority” is beyond me!

    I like the first one, I was born 8/8/88 and I often feel very lucky and seem to have “good fortune”.

    Here is the fastest, most effective way I have found to make
    money. It’s easy and you barely have to do anything. Money starts coming in
    right away and within months you can easily earn over $50,000.

    You can easily generate over $50,000 in several months or less. It works
    QUICKLY and LEGALLY. Basically, this is all about PEOPLE HELPING PEOPLE.

    IT WAS PROVEN ON OPRAH, CNN, 20/20 and various highly respected U.S. TV and
    radio programs as being 100% legal, feasible and true!


    To get started just copy this whole page and paste it to your documents. Simply
    follow the instructions below and in 2 to 4 weeks, you could have as much as
    $50,000 in your PayPal account or even more.

    Most people respond to this program because of the low investment ($10 USD) and
    high profit potential. There is no limit to the income you can generate from
    this (you can just do it over and over!) If you follow the instructions, you
    will reach thousands of people.

    The first thing you need to do is go to PayPal.com and sign up for a free PREIMER or BUSINESS
    account. (You must have this type of account and not a personal account
    otherwise you will not be able to receive credit card payments and this will
    limit the income you can generate).

    Step 1:

    Send a $5.00 US dollar payment from your PayPal account to THE FIRST e-mail
    address on the list below (No. 1) by using the PayPal ‘Send Money’ feature and
    be sure to include in the email subject “Payment for Internet

    Step 2:

    Then send another $5.00 US dollar payment to the 5th person on the list (No. 5)
    with an email that says “Payment for Internet Marketing 5th”.

    Step 3:

    Once you have done that, REMOVE the 1st email address on the list and place
    YOUR email address at the bottom (position no. 5). Then move the 2nd to 1st,
    the 3rd to 2nd, the 4th to 3rd, and 5th to 4th. You now become the 5th email
    address on the list.

    you do this, the way it was designed, it will reach thousands by the time your
    email address gets to the top.

    Here is the list:

    1. Jay_boy16@hotmail.com

    2. lilchris1978@gmail.com

    3. leighahrutkay@yahoo.com

    4. dpaudiophile@yahoo.com

    5. rozadawilliams@yahoo.com

    Make sure your email address is the same as the one you used to open your
    PayPal Account as this is the way you will receive your payments.

    Now that you have paid the 1st and 5th person and sent them both an email (via
    your PayPal account), place your email address in the 5th place.

    Step 4


    Post it everywhere! You can post on message boards and newsgroups (there are
    thousands). You can send an e-mail to your own e-mail list. Post it to any
    newsgroup, forum or comments section that you feel people who see it would be
    interested benefiting from this method as well. Use blogs, social networking,
    pintrest, and online classifieds. You may need to post it close to 200 times to
    get the results you desire, but there are over 100,000 places you can post
    this. And remember, the more you post, the more you will earn!


    The 5th person is the Guardian of the System – YOU!!!

    Now the fun begins. As you wait through the 4th, 3rd and 2nd slots for your
    work as Guardian to pay off, thousands of others will become Guardian and keep
    the program moving.

    Once you get to the 1st position, it means thousands have been working the
    program since you started. All of those people will then pay you as the 1st and
    you won’t believe the kind of money that has been generated. When your name
    (email address) reaches the 1st slot, 900 to 15,000 or more people will send
    you $5.00 dollars each. You could easily make up to $50,000 USD.

    Keep in mind – the most you spend is $10 dollars. And you are guaranteed to
    earn $100 because as guardian you commit to at least 20 replies (each one
    paying you $5.00).

    The Guardian system is based on people helping each other out. This program is
    completely legal and will generate a lot of money very quickly.


    Mary Gatters, Columbia, SC

    said on Oprah show: I only have one thing to say to you. OH MY GOD! I sent out
    142 copies in total before 20 replied like the instructions said. Then I went
    on a short vacation. When I got back my account had over $32,000 dollars in it
    already and the money was still coming! I’m still floating on air (especially
    with my new car). I thought the “Guardian System” sounded cheesy, but
    now I realize it is the formula that makes this letter really work! THANKS.

    Richard Barrie, Boulder, CO:

    I was shocked when I saw how much money came flooding into my PayPal account.
    Within 3 weeks my account balance has ballooned to $22,449. At first I thought
    there had been some sort of error with my account.

    Wishing you all the best wealth and success!
