This week in my personal finance? I emptied the change bowl of all foreign currency. After taking out the South African Rands, Mexican Pesos, Euros, Swiss Francs, Peruvian Soles and Guatemalan Centavos, there was about $1.50 in pennies. There you go.
Small victories this week:
- Calling the bank to get a fee removed from my checking account
- Taking advantage of Chick-fil-a's free breakfast promotion
- Ice cream happy hour with the girls....you still get the hour or so of chat, but for the price of an ice cream cone
Budgets are Sexy - Don't be ASS-pirational Aspirational spending - spending like the lifestyle you wish to enjoy instead of your actual one
Thousandaire - My Definition of Rich Rich enough to provide miracles....kind of like Bill and Melinda Gates (mentioned above in the post about aspirational spending)
Yes I Am Cheap - Don't Have Kids if You Can't Afford Them $14,000+ per year to raise a child not including college and inflation...ouch
