The Monetary Dummy of The Week Award 🏆

Good morning!!

Have you ever tousled in any respect together with your cash recently?!

I’ve – 3 instances already this week and it’s not even over! 😂

Right here’s what I’ve executed that’s value me $50 thus far and earned me the Monetary Dummy of The Week Award… sigh…


1) I misplaced $16 in money on the espresso store. I had been needing extra free money in my pockets on account of my necessary Sure Rule, so I broke a $20 to get my espresso Monday as a substitute of utilizing plastic, after which made the silly mistake of holding it in my fingers whereas awaiting my espresso… Why I didn’t put it safely in my pockets I couldn’t let you know (I assume I used to be distracted?) however shortly there after realized it was now not in my fingers and now misplaced to the world 🙁 My solely hope is that I unintentionally left it on the counter and the baristas took it as a tip so at the very least somebody had an incredible day! Haha…

2) I paid $12.64 for an empty field I may have gotten free of charge (!!) I needed to make a return to Amazon that initially got here in two containers, however after I went to the UPS retailer they stated it needed to all match into *one* since I solely had one return label. All I needed to do was drive the 5 minutes again to my home and scoop up one of many MILLIONS of containers hoarded in my basement for instances EXACTLY LIKE THIS ONE, however as a substitute I selected the ridiculous choice to simply purchase a field there and save quarter-hour as a substitute… Although I used to be in no rush in any way. Pure laziness!!

3) I paid $19.31 in overdue invoice charges! The primary time in 10+ years!! I used to be updating the ol’ internet value Sunday (a way more enjoyable month to do it btw in comparison with latest months! ;)) when it occurred to me that I haven’t seen one in all my most annoying payments to pay every month – our water/sewage invoice. (Annoying as a result of I at all times need to sort out the dang routing and account quantity each time I pay it because it doesn’t allow you to save something!)

The invoice sometimes reveals up in my e-mail across the center of every month, however after I searched my inbox the final one I noticed was from April! APRIL!!! I used to be THREE months late and possibly on the verge of being shut off 😬😬😬. For sure I paid off everything of the steadiness straight away (all $280!), after which promptly created calendar objects to pop up as soon as a month to remind me to pay it in case the emails proceed to fail…

I 100% need to blame the utilities firm for this because it’s their system that stopped understanding of nowhere (it’s been emailing me each single month with out fail for years!) however in the end in fact it’s my very own accountability for not staying on high of it. A superb reminder that you may’t at all times depend on automation and must manually examine in on issues now and again!

So whole misplaced, with nothing in return aside from blogger embarrassment: $47.95

I additionally just lately picked up just a few items of bijou on a whim that I regretted hours later, however since I at all times have a again up plan for stuff I purchase, it’s extra like early reward searching for mates 😉

regretted jewelry

  1. Temper ring ($10)
  2. Purple bracelet ($6)
  3. Classic trying purple stone ring ($15)
  4. Onyx trying ring ($3)


(For some motive I’ve been on a jewellery kick alllll summer season lengthy! Sooner or later I simply determined I miss sporting rings, after which subsequent factor I do know I’m scooping them up left and proper at classic shops and most instances discovering nice ones (and most significantly, sporting them! I presently have 5 on my fingers proper now typing this – feels nice!))

Listed below are a few of my favorites I’ve picked up thus far:

eye ring

vintage silver rings(One in every of these 4 is precise classic and the others fake… Are you able to guess which is genuine?)

So yeah, even your favourite cash blogger will get issues improper generally 🙂

On the plus aspect, it doesn’t completely smash your day while you’ve been good 99.9% of the remainder of the time and might spare some goofs, however nonetheless doesn’t really feel that nice both… The truth is, generally it feels even worse than market crashes for some motive! Lol… Isn’t that bizarre?

I “misplaced” $100,000 of internet value final month, nevertheless it didn’t ache me practically as a lot as dropping this $50 this week! I suppose perhaps since the reason for it was *me* and/or I used to be dropping literal *money cash* vs monetary pixels on a display?, however both method fairly silly how our brains work, haha…

At any fee, $hit occurs! We’re people and superb at making errors!

And in addition as a result of we’re human we take pleasure in listening to different peoples’ errors too, so if you happen to’ve made any just lately as properly do share to make ourselves really feel higher! Are you able to beat my $12 field transfer and steal the Monetary Dummy of The Week award from me?! 🏆

Let’s goooooooooooo!
