However, sometimes, you get a little lucky and can make extra money without even trying.

That is exactly what happened to a man named Rolivegarden. And it didn’t just happen once, but three times.

Taking to social media, he shared a clip of himself looking through a clothes rack before zooming in on a pair of shorts.

“Check the size in the pocket of these Lulu pants and…” he wrote as he checked the pockets.

“I only make money saving a few times,” continued TikTok user @rolivegarden with a cool emoji. “Really attractive”.

In the caption, he continued: “In 5+ years of savings, I’ve earned maybe 3x cash back so I’m super excited,” followed by heart emojis.

People were quick to comment on the video, sharing their own experiences of what they found in bags of items they’d bought from thrift stores.

One person wrote: “I bought a vintage one piece ski suit when I paid 19.99 and found $40 in my old 20s when I got home.”

Another said: “It’s like a bonus,” with an angel emoji.

The third joked: “It’s true that those pants belong to my grandfather and he always keeps money in his pocket.”


While the fifth added: “Oh my god, I just went to the thrift store yesterday, I should have done this lol”.
