The expression "leaving money on the table" is used to signify a transaction where you are unable or unwilling to fully maximize your return. Like all of us, there have been times when I have felt like I left money on the table. When I have left money on the table it is often because I did not want to deal with the hassle of getting every last bit out of a deal.
Today I am going to deal with the hassle of actually picking up the money (mostly change) I have left on the table, and on the counter, and on the night stand, and on the dryer, and have left around several other places around the house.
Not only will I have a little extra spending money, but I will also reduce clutter. More importantly, I am hoping it will serve as a example to remind me to take full advantage of future opportunities, so that I don't leave money on the table.
