No dollar left behind
J and I were discussing finances tonight, and were basically pushing money around to fit gaps. You know this conversation:
Well, if we pay for that out of savings, we could cover it.
But we could use our tax return instead.
Right, but we could just put the return back into savings.
Oh, like that ever happens …
We actually pretend that if we talk about money in chunks like this it will magically multiply and be plentiful. After a few minutes of this, I said, well, we have a plan for each and every dollar, let’s call it No Dollar Left Behind. We accept contributions for this noble program, by the way.
