NEW YORK - Some college roommates in New York picked up a couch for just $20.00 at the Salvation Army, and the three teens got plenty of bang for their buck.

The couch was lumpy, so they decided to look inside the cushions to see why. Inside the couch, they found several envelopes, stuffed with cash totaling $40,000.

The roommates were going to keep the money until they found a deposit slip with the previous couch owner's name on it. They then tracked down the 91-year-old woman the cash belonged to.

She says she didn't trust banks, so she always just kept her money around the house. While she was hospitalized, her kids had unknowingly sold the couch and the cash.
