This is another wisdom tooth surgery savings post. You can just skip it if you find this kind of thing boring.
When I last posted I was still $526.76 from my goal. Then I canceled my safety deposit box, which was due for renewal in March saving $40 this month and every year thereafter. Then I custom-fitted a sheet to my bed, by hemming it myself. If I took it to the tailor, it would have cost $10.
Yesterday, I worked an extra shift for high bonus pay. There was a lot of driving involved which is reimbursed at 0.55 per mile and I have four hours of mandatory meetings next week, which will boost my next paycheck by an additional $480.
And, there is still three weeks till the surgery, so I can keep on saving.
I did spend some extra money in the past week–$200 for some new high hat cymbals (expected and saved for) and tickets to a theatre production for me and middle son –$174. That was unexpected, but I’m sure I’ll be able to cover it.
