Money = month

June 19th, 2014 at 01:59 pm


For once, not more month than money. OK, that's an exaggeration. We usually coast into Pay Day Eve with $4.69 balance. This time it was within a buck.

Definitely to reign in on food spending. Time to check those summer and light eating recipes.

That's it. Just a random money observation.

    # MEC, I had that quote printed in large font on the inside cover of a previously used financial binder. Smile

    It must have inspired your post! Although I'm not the world's greatest Dickens fan, he knew something about money and happiness!

    I will admit to not loving Dickens that much - had to suffer through another round of "Great Expectations" with my then 9th grader a few months ago. Though I am considering reading a book that someone recommended about this wife (I think) that he tried to get committed. Does that sound right? Or am I confusing Dickens with someone else? Interestingly enough, I just watched Ken Burns' documentary on the Shakers and he mentioned Nathaniel Hawthorne considering membership. Older daughter's second summer reading assignment is "The Scarlet Letter". Not looking forward to that read, but maybe it will prove interesting. I think a trip to the Library is in order! Smile

    Ha, we agree on Great Expectations--I hate it. And it is Dickens who was such a mean jerk to his wife. I like Hawthorne--much much better than I did at 15! I bet you will too.

    I am impressed you were within $1. I go over or way under sometimes.
