Today’s prompt was to write about something that makes me happy, well for me saving money makes me happy. For those wondering yes my kids make me happy and seeing their smiles melt my heart but that’s a given so now we go to something else. Lets be serious, when it comes to me it doesn’t take much to make me happy. To show you how happy I get I went to a book sale this weekend with my kids, it said 5 for $1 so I let BabyGirl get 10 books for $2, she came back with $1. I was impressed and let each child get 5 books and still had more than enough.
I get so excited when I drive down to get a Sunday paper (because I love the coupons) and find out that the French lady didn’t take them all and left me a few. Yes, that really happens and I’ve been told who takes them all. So I get all excited over two papers. Hey, it’s money in the bank people. I get a huge smile on my face when I’ve saved up enough money to pay off an old debt. Yes, I realize I shouldn’t have debt but oh well I do and I am trying to fix that now, so for me this is a big deal. I recently signed up for Savings Catcher at Walmart and learned after a few days I had .56 in the account. Yes, it compares prices of stores in the nearby area and gives you back money if another store beat them. hehe. So I’m making money even after shopping.What makes you happy?
