Sometimes it seems like money is a one way road and it’s not going in my direction. This week a couple of things made me think it is a 2 way street.
It started off with two checks I wasn’t planning on (even though not unexpected). First I had a medical FSA reimbursement check. Because my monthly budget includes medical expenses this check always seems like a bonus.
Then I received my second BlogHer ads check (YEAH!). It’s not big but every $25 helps, right?
The last time I found cash was about two years ago in Belize. $60 was lying in the sand by a group of empty chairs. That changed this past week.
First I put on some shorts I hadn’t worn in several weeks and found $5 that had survived the washer and dryer in good shape.
Then while walking the dog there was a $20 next to the sidewalk by the front gate. I don’t know why but love this kind of good karma!
Instead of taking this money and buying myself a treat (like I might have done a couple of years ago) it’s going towards our debt snowball. We’re still on track to be non-mortgage debt free by 12/31/2011 and every bit helps!
