I did a really foolish thing today!!! I balanced my checkbook. I never do that and for some reason I felt like I should. Why in the world would I follow my feelings!? I very seldom follow feelings that could be detrimental to my mental health!
So money has always been a mystery to me. It always seems like you either have enough or you don't! I pay the same bills, buy the same groceries, pay the same taxes and still every month ends up differently. So I talked to my sister Karen who is really good at managing money and she gave me some great ideas. One of her ideas is to get $400-$500 dollars worth of items every six months at the case lot sales to cut back on my monthly food bill. I thought this was an excellent idea and I can't for the life of me figure out why I didn't think of it myself! I lucked out because the case lot sales are going on this month.
I know that money is a good thing when I use it wisely but O what a headache when I don't!
Maybe when my rich uncle Thadeus Monopolis passes on to the next life he will leave me his fortune!!! O wait! I don't have an uncle Thadeus Monopolis!
I guess I will just have to hitch a ride with Karen and hit the case lot sales!
Good luck to all you money bags out there today!!!
