Decluttering = Cash

November 25th, 2017 at 12:01 pm

So because I didn't want to go out today and be tempted to spend money, I decided to stay home and clean, one of the things, one does when they're broke 😀.

I put the Christian tree up and decorated with the new ornaments, I lost that battle but that's a different story. My mom has a few pink bows I had given her years ago, so I'll pick them up to put on our tree and give her my res ones. Compromise = my sanity and money saved.

I decluttered our living room. There are pictures everywhere and I can't stand that. They get dusty and I'm the only one cleaning them. So I packed them up. I told my SO last night that I wanted to do away with all these photos everywhere.

Next I tackled my desk, and though I am not quite finished, I am pleased. In the mist of my decluttering and cleaning I found a check from AFLAC dated in 2013 for $75, I'm calling them to see if they'll reissue. There's no note to cash within a certain period, so I'm wondering if I can cash it. I also found another check dated, I think in 2015. This is actually a post office money order, I wonder if I can cash this? I'm calling the post office to find out. The next item found is was a $40 lottery scratch off, yay. I took it into the convenient store and cashed out.

I know how some of you feel but tithing is important to me, so I asked for $5 in ones, took my tithe of $4 off and paid $36 to CC number three.

    Congratulations Amber! Sounds like you scored some big financial wins today. Happy for you! Unless otherwise stated on the check, it should be good. Also, the money order is "cash", so that should be okay, unless otherwise noted on said document.

    Thanks, I'm going to cash them Monday. Too bad I didn't find it earlier, the banks were open

    Wow, lots of treasure! Good move on trading bows with your mom. My mom and I used to buy Christmas cards after Christmas, use what we wanted one year, and then trade the next year so we both had "new" cards to use. New to us. My mom is gone, but now I buy new in box cards at the thrift store...unopened in fact. Good deal on finding those things and decluttering.
