Cash & Cards

Today was a day of great finds, like cash and cards. I was on a cleaning spree, I think it's still a little to early to call it nesting :) Or it could be that since we started all this home remodeling I feel like my home is in disarray. So, I thought I'll start cleaning things that don't have to do with the kitchen, laundry room, or hall bathroom. In the process of cleaning out some papers from our February trip I found $30 cash, it belongs to the 3 little boys. It was given to them by our friends Wes and Amy before our trip. Now these boys are each $10 in the plus! Then I began to clean out a cubby in our roll top desk, this cubby had lots of cards and notes. I thought I need to see what's to keep and what's to throw away. I came across the very sweet birthday card my children gave me in March with $70 in it...WooHoo!!! Feeling very excited I was on to another cubby in the desk, one that has stamps and a few gift cards. (these are my cubbies) The gift cards had been there for sometime, I thought might as well check to see if there was anything left on them. Guess what? There was! 4 cards with a combined total of $43.88!

So, today I found cash and cards with a grand total of $143.88. This was another "great" example of why Arthur takes care of our finances :) I'm very organized in our house and with our children, but with finances I'm a walking disaster. I'm thankful Arthur takes care of all that!

What fun!! I'm with you on the finances. :) My husband has recently asked me to be in charge of keeping up with and paying all of the medical bills. He's so busy with school that he just can't do it all right now. I've done okay so far, but I just know that I'm going to miss something and someone is going to send a collection agency after us! :) I'm thankful that my husband does our finances too. I can't imagine having to do all of them and I'm sure we'd be in trouble if I did!
