...and no idea how much!
Actually, it's probably about $75-80. It's a mix ofDH's birthday money, baby gift money, my spending money, loose change, and $22 that a ratings company sent me for answering their TV and radio surveys. (Side note - if you get junk mail from "Arbitron," open it!) It's spilling out of my purse, tucked in greetings cards, and piled up in a bowl on my desk.
Suze Orman says when your cash is disorganized, you probably don't have your finances in order. Well, she's right on target here! Since this baby has been born, I haven't kept my money tidy, I haven't looked at our budget, and I even briefly LOST my cable bill! (It was in my bedroom closet, of course.)
So, tomorrow, between feedings, burpings, changings, and naps, I vow to line up every dollar, smallest to largest, all eyes on one direction, and put mine in my wallet, put the baby's in his piggy bank, and give DH's to him. And I'll fill my change jar!
Then we can see about starting our May budget. But, right now, I'm gonig to pay that cable bill.
How about you? Do you keep your cash in order? Do you see a connection between the condition of your cash stash and the overall state of your finances?
