Monetary Dummy of The Week Award 🏆

Good morning!!

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

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

Right here’s what I’ve carried out that’s price 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 attributable to my obligatory Sure Rule, so I broke a $20 to get my espresso Monday as a substitute of utilizing plastic, after which made the silly mistake of retaining it in my arms whereas awaiting my espresso… Why I didn’t put it safely in my pockets I couldn’t let you know (I suppose I used to be distracted?) however shortly there after realized it was now not in my arms and now misplaced to the world 🙁 My solely hope is that I by chance left it on the counter and the baristas took it as a tip so no less than somebody had a fantastic day! Haha…

2) I paid $12.64 for an empty field I might have gotten free of charge (!!) I needed to make a return to Amazon that initially got here in two bins, however after I went to the UPS retailer they stated 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 bins hoarded in my basement for occasions EXACTLY LIKE THIS ONE, however as a substitute I selected the ridiculous possibility to only purchase a field there and save quarter-hour as a substitute… Regardless that 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 price Sunday (a way more enjoyable month to do it btw in comparison with latest months! ;)) when it occurred to me that I haven’t seen one in every of 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 possibly on the verge of being shut off 😬😬😬. For sure I paid off the whole thing of the stability immediately (all $280!), after which promptly created calendar gadgets to pop up as soon as a month to remind me to pay it in case the emails proceed to fail…

I 100% need 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 finally in fact it’s my very own duty for not staying on prime of it. A superb reminder that you could’t all the time depend on automation and must manually test in on issues every so often!

So complete misplaced, with nothing in return aside from blogger embarrassment: $47.95

I additionally lately picked up a couple of items of bijou 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 reward searching for pals 😉

regretted jewelry

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


(For some motive I’ve been on a jewellery kick alllll summer season lengthy! Sooner or later 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 occasions discovering nice ones (and most significantly, sporting them! I presently have 5 on my arms 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(Certainly one of 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 improper typically 🙂

On the plus aspect, it doesn’t completely wreck your day if you’ve been good 99.9% of the remainder of the time and might spare some goofs, however nonetheless doesn’t really feel that nice both… The truth is, typically it feels even worse than market crashes for some motive! Lol… Isn’t that bizarre?

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

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

And in addition 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 effectively 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!
