Victory!

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.

  1. Great job! All of that over time work and cutting is getting you to your goal. Have fun at the theater. I went through our movies and am going to donate them to the church rummage sale next month. Also. I added several more pieces of clothing to the pile.

    • Pat, Did you know that you can sell your books, dvds and cds on Amazon? I’ve sold lots and most of the time I’ve made a good profit but still have a long way to go before everything is sold.

      • Diane, I just decided to donate instead of selling. I wanted to help the mission trip that the church is doing. Thank you for the tip though, I always appreciate advice on other options to consider..
