Settling down

July 13th, 2011 at 05:59 am

After my vacation spending frenzy, I am settling down into frugality again.

Had a no-spend day on Monday. Yesterday I bought cookies at the cafeteria -- mainly because I was freaked at a big assignment and -- and hungry -- and I needed a boost. $2.

Today the weather was cooler, so I walked to work.

I found a nickel on a busy road. I didn't want to pass it up, so I waited for the traffic to clear and then quickly stepped in and got it. I suppose people thought I was nuts.

While on vacation I found a quarter in a CVS parking lot. I updated my sidebar. While my gains are modest, it is still pretty amazing to me that I have picked up a little over $2.50 on the street in about a year!

    It all adds up! And I am shocked that people won't pick up money on the ground. We have a "mite" box for church and so I've been sharing part of my finds with it.
