Monetary Dummy of The Week Award 🏆

Good morning!!

Have you ever tousled in any respect along with your cash these days?!

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

Right here’s what I’ve accomplished that’s value me $50 to this point 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 unfastened money in my pockets because of my necessary Sure Rule, so I broke a $20 to get my espresso Monday as an alternative of utilizing plastic, after which made the silly mistake of maintaining it in my palms whereas awaiting my espresso… Why I didn’t put it safely in my pockets I couldn’t inform you (I suppose I used to be distracted?) however shortly there after realized it was not in my palms and now misplaced to the world 🙁 My solely hope is that I by accident left it on the counter and the baristas took it as a tip so at the least somebody had an incredible day! Haha…

2) I paid $12.64 for an empty field I may have gotten at no cost (!!) I needed to make a return to Amazon that initially got here in two packing containers, however after I went to the UPS retailer they mentioned 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 packing containers hoarded in my basement for instances EXACTLY LIKE THIS ONE, however as an alternative I selected the ridiculous choice to simply purchase a field there and save quarter-hour as an alternative… Though I used to be in no rush in anyway. 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 current 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 all the time 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 exhibits 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 doubtless on the verge of being shut off 😬😬😬. For sure I paid off the whole lot 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% wish to blame the utilities firm for this because it’s their system that stopped figuring out of nowhere (it’s been emailing me each single month with out fail for years!) however in the end after all it’s my very own accountability for not staying on prime of it. A superb reminder you can’t all the time depend on automation and have to manually verify in on issues once in a while!

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

I additionally lately picked up a couple of items of jewellery on a whim that I regretted hours later, however since I all the time have a again up plan for stuff I purchase, it’s extra like early present looking for associates 😉

regretted jewelry

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


(For some purpose I’ve been on a jewellery kick alllll summer season lengthy! At some point 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 at the moment have 5 on my palms proper now typing this – feels nice!))

Listed below are a few of my favorites I’ve picked up to this point:

eye ring

vintage silver rings(One among 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 unsuitable typically 🙂

On the plus facet, it doesn’t completely damage your day if you’ve been good 99.9% of the remainder of the time and may spare some goofs, however nonetheless doesn’t really feel that nice both… Actually, typically it feels even worse than market crashes for some purpose! Lol… Isn’t that bizarre?

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

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

And likewise as a result of we’re human we get pleasure from listening to different peoples’ errors too, so for those who’ve made any 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!
