The Monetary Dummy of The Week Award 🏆

Good morning!!

Have you ever tousled in any respect together with your cash these days?!

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

Right here’s what I’ve performed that’s value me $50 to date 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 resulting from my obligatory Sure Rule, so I broke a $20 to get my espresso Monday as an alternative of utilizing plastic, after which made the silly mistake of holding it in my palms 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 not in my palms 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 may have gotten at no cost (!!) I needed to make a return to Amazon that initially got here in two bins, however once I went to the UPS retailer they mentioned 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 an alternative I selected the ridiculous possibility to only purchase a field there and save quarter-hour as an alternative… Despite the fact that I used to be in no rush by any means. Pure laziness!!

3) I paid $19.31 in overdue invoice charges! The primary time in 10+ years!! I used to be updating the ol’ web value 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 among my most annoying payments to pay every month – our water/sewage invoice. (Annoying as a result of I at all times need to kind out the dang routing and account quantity each time I pay it because it doesn’t allow you to save something!)

The invoice usually exhibits up in my e-mail across the center of every month, however once I searched my inbox the final one I noticed was from April! APRIL!!! I used to be THREE months late and doubtless on the verge of being shut off 😬😬😬. Evidently I paid off the whole lot of the steadiness instantly (all $280!), after which promptly created calendar objects to pop up as soon as a month to remind me to pay it in case the emails proceed to fail…

I 100% wish to blame the utilities firm for this because it’s their system that stopped understanding of nowhere (it’s been emailing me each single month with out fail for years!) however in the end in fact it’s my very own duty for not staying on prime of it. A superb reminder which you can’t at all times depend on automation and must manually verify in on issues once in a while!

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

I additionally not too long ago picked up a number of items of knickknack on a whim that I regretted hours later, however since I at all times have a again up plan for stuff I purchase, it’s extra like early reward looking for mates 😉

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! In the future I simply determined I miss carrying 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, carrying them! I at the moment have 5 on my palms proper now typing this – feels nice!))

Listed here are a few of my favorites I’ve picked up to date:

eye ring

vintage silver rings(One among 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 incorrect typically 🙂

On the plus aspect, it doesn’t completely wreck your day while 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… Actually, typically it feels even worse than market crashes for some motive! Lol… Isn’t that bizarre?

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

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

And in addition as a result of we’re human we take pleasure in listening to different peoples’ errors too, so in case you’ve made any not too long ago as properly 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!
