broke the streak

Saving log - $1 tip box
Spending log - $1.75 coffee
Found money - $0.03 (sidewalks)

Saving log - $2 tip box
Spending log - $1.75 coffee + $12 lunch
Found money - $0

Well, the 38th day in a row finding found money was not to be. I found nothing yesterday, but got back on the horse and found three pennies today.

Abandoned most of the frugal principals yesterday. I was going to decline a lunch screenwriter friend and lawyer friend's partner, but I sniffed the lunch that I had in the work fridge - it turned, and I thought, "a bought lunch with friends would be money well spent."

Work is picking up - I expect that it will be hopping by Thursday the 31st. This year is shaping up to be a strange one: more antsiness about making sure that the credit card is charged by the 31st than in previous years. Also, we are seeing a rise in bad credit cards again, as in 2007.

DH joined our death bet.

    I should have known better, but I charged a couple of donations, last year, AFTER the 1st. I hadn't intended them to be for the prior year, and was annoyed when I got confirmations from TWO different charities that I made 12/31 contributions. Tsk tsk. I think that is going to mess me up this year. (I can't remember if I Deducted them in the year prior or not - I don't think I did - but those confirmations will confuse me. Will deduct for 2009 as intended). But people really do the last minute charitable deduction thing, I suppose.

    Next time I will wait a few days if I am so inclined to make 1/1 (or 1/2) donations. Wink
