Personal Finance Fails and Wins...

*I got an email yesterday that Tina Fey's new book, Bossypants, was ready for me to pick up from the library. I put myself on the waiting list a month ago and it was finally my turn! I came home and read it all in one night. For free. :) Winning!

*I had put a book on hold a few weeks ago and forgot to go get it. If you don't pick it up, they charge you $1.05 for reshelving. Whoops. Fail!

*I got the tickets for tonight's Dodger game on Groupon, spending $13 per ticket on seats valued at $28 each. I'm going with my cousins, and they agreed to ride the metro up there. BF is going to drive home since he is meeting us there after work. Winning!

*I went to Fresh & Easy and bought groceries this morning. Got some good deals but realized after I had scanned everything that I forgot my coupon at home. It was $10 off $50, and I spent $46 anyway...could've got more stuff and spent less. Fail! 

*Washed my car this morning at the do-it-yourself place. Spent $6.25 to wash and vacuum my car. But, I started at the back with the vacuum and it ran out of time just as I was about to start the floor of the driver's side. Annoying. But, washing my own car=winning!

*My electric bill is $2 less this month than last month, for a total of $17.40. Winning!


  1. 17.40 for Electricity? I am so jealous. You don't even want to know how much mine is!

  2. Love this format. Might have to steal it :)
