WFMW: Extra Money

To save up a little extra money, we have a bank money bag on our kitchen counter. Any extra money goes into this bag, and we take it to the bank every once in awhile and deposit the money into a separate account. Our “extra” money includes:

• Money DH receives for refereeing and umpiring
• Pocket change
• Laundry change
• If people owe me money and pay me back
• Insurance reimbursements
• Basically anytime I’m at home and have extra money on hand

This money adds up faster than you think. We use the money in this extra bank account for special things, such as taking the kids for an overnighter at a hotel, buying our NASCAR tickets. We also use it for dull things like property taxes.
