back in the tip box saddle

March 10th, 2011 at 08:53 pm

A break from the pictures with an actual fiscal post.

Today I put 9$ in the tip box at work. Ahhhh! I hadn't put any in for several months - I collected fairly crispy $1s for the trip instead.

Now it doesn't matter how crispy the bills are, only that they are. A small act, but it really makes me happy.

Also scheduled my last appointment for the bird flu vaccine study, a time point of 180 days after I got the shot. Another $50 to get in April.

    I thought I was boring everybody with the tip box. I have a box with a cover in my drawer at work, and for laughs I pay myself change, or a buck or two, etc. Then monthly I scoop up what I put in and save it.

    Once upon a time I actually posted a picture of my tip box.

    Its a small thing, but its a powerhouse. In the last 5 years that I've done this, I've saved about $3000.
