(WLNS) - Come on, admit it.  You've always dreamed of finding an old lottery ticket and cashing in.

That's exactly what happened to Susan Christensen of Whitmore Lake.

The Livingston County woman was cleaning out her old purses and found a Mega Millions lottery ticket.

She checked the numbers and discovered she had found a winner.

A $250,000 winner.

Mega Millions lottery tickets expire after one year if they are unclaimed.

Christensen found her ticket with four days to spare before the deadline.

She tells 6 News that she's using the money to establish a trust fund for her children and grandchildren.
