Finished Paying A Bill Today

December 15th, 2010 at 07:09 pm

Today I made the final payment to my CPA. It feels so good to get that taken care of. I have an extra $250 that I am trying to decide what to do with. I think I may just park it in my checking account for right now.

Normally I keep about $100 hidden at home for quick runs to the grocery store or for whatever else we may need. This is so we don't have to run to the ATM or use our debit card for small purchases. I just started this a couple of months ago and it's been working out nicely. Yesterday my husband and I wanted to get a small heater for our bedroom. It's been so cold and we don't want to have a huge heating bill. So we thought a small heater would help keep us warm at night. I used cash that was on me, so we did not have to use our debit card or go to the ATM.

I live in North Carolina and we are expected to have some wintry weather tomorrow. Last year I would have been panicking because I am self-employed. If I don't work, I don't get paid. Last year I really did not have any savings. So if I missed getting paid due to wintry weather, I would have been in trouble. But tomorrow if I don't work and don't get paid, it won't really hurt. That's a nice feeling. But it would still be nice to make that money tomorrow. :-)

    I live just 10 miles south of the North Carolina line and we have been having wintry weather all week. I am in Blairsville, Ga., just 20 miles south of Murphy, N.C.

    Sometimes those little space heaters can lead to a huge (and cheaper) difference. We like them a lot for the room where the baby is sleeping, because it offers some insurance that we can manage the temperature in one area without jacking up the heating bill. When I was in the military it didn't seem to get that cold very often in North Carolina! Smile Jerry
