I have a few posts in the works, but for today, I’m sharing my savings updates and a quote:
I’m adding $50.00 to the emergency fund from a focus group this afternoon, and $7.03 in unspent change from January, bringing my total savings up to $251.03. Hooray!
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens; but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one which has been opened for us.” – Helen Keller
I’ve been focused for so long on the closed door – the cut in income, the loss of health insurance, the change in circumstances that have been a strain on our marriage and my feelings of security – that I haven’t been able to look forward. There are so many options and opportunities, open doors in front of me, and I’m availing myself of them with gratitude.
One option: a clean desk. Public humiliation was a good motivator.
I’ve been making many phone calls and will be back in the coming days with several Dialing for Dollars posts, Saved vs. Store Bought reviews, and a giveaway! See you tomorrow!
