Still Adding Stitches...
My state has a lost money web site - most states do - and I randomly looked today. My mom is out on it for $2325. It is like finding a winning lottery ticket. It takes more for me to jump thru the hoops to get it since my mom is dead now, but I will figure it out.
I have been tossing my change into a water bottle for years. This week I cashed it in to pay for the dishwasher - it came out almost even to the bill amount. I am also still trying to stay within my budget. This month it is $200. I have spent that on groceries, gasoline, eating out, stamps, shopping. I'd like to finish out the month with a $50 a week spending average total.
So I have spent this month counting pennies - literally - and trying to stay within a $200 monthly limit - which is not limiting myself severly. And suddenly, I find $2325? Now is that my budget for the next 11 months from the universe as a gift? Because it could be a really nice flat screen tv with sound system, and player... Coincedence? or just really weird???
