The Table

April 12th, 2021 at 05:54 pm

I just arranged -- finally -- to have my table picked up for repair and refinishing.  Because of the shop's workload, it won't happen until May 17, but that's fine.  That will be after I come back from Oregon, and I will be ready!

I just redeemed $14 in cashback rewards from Discover.  I've been keeping track of extra income this year, and so far it's been $3,068.  Most of that is the two stimulus payments.  I don't have much extra income anymore.  I stopped doing mystery shopping, and Pine Cone doesn't send me surveys anymore.  I somehow got off their radar after I tried to use their app.  That's okay; I don't really like doing the surveys, and it's not that much income.

I also took a look at my "big ticket" spending last year and found that I averaged $1K per month in spending that is not part of my variables budget.  Last year it included things like getting my ceiling replaced, getting a lot of electrical work done, some major car repairs, a new computer, Christmas spending, and donations to my grandkids' college funds.  I was surprised it was that high.  I'm okay -- my net worth has continued to slowly rise -- but I do hope that this year won't be quite as costly.  So far I'm averaging $430 per month, which is more where I would like it to be -- but you never know what's going to happen.  Getting the table done, for sure, will push that up.

    Hope the table comes back as lovely as you expect.

    I think we've all spent more this year due to Covid and prices going up due to supply and demand.
