So my Snowflakes total has jumped in the last few days. I decided to count the interest on the 1099 from the credit union. (I will only do that once a year.) I also added a Pine Cone payment and cash back bonuses from Discover. I always include any found change in Snowflakes, too, though I track the found money separately, too, because I just want to know how much I pick up from the ground!

I think I am going to donate my Snowflakes to my grandchildren's college funds. I had a little over $1100 last year.

I going to get paid in two days, and it's going to be a bad cash flow month. My Discover bill exceeds $4000, so I will have to raid my emergency fund to pay it in full. It was mostly a large car repair bill that threw me off, and that's what the emergency fund is for, so I will try not to pout.

I will have to do some serious saving to rebuild it, though.

This is the last month of the Discover challenge. I still have to spend $900+ to earn the $400 bonus. I need to buy sheets, a comforter, and a coffeemaker. I'm sure there are other updates I need if I put my mind to it. Curious how uninterested I have become in spending! Now that I have bought the big items I needed, I am lacking in enthusiasm.

I'm going downtown for the board meeting today. The high point is that I'll get a free lunch! It is still snowing, but there is no wind today, so it feels relatively warm, even with temperatures in the teens!
