Dividend Challenge

>> 7.31.2009

I'm getting (especially) tight with my money as I've already started to pay hundreds of dollars in home-related costs. It might sound pathetic, but I got extremely excited when my stock dividend checks came in the mail. Why is getting excited about checks pathetic? Well, unlike wealthy people with millions of dollars in stocks who get thousands in dividends, mine come in amounts like $1.34, $7.25, $1.00.. In total, I was excited over $9.59.

Hey, it's still money- money that wasn't accounted for in my monthly budget! So I'm going to make the most of that $9.59 and see how much fun I can have with it this weekend. I'll report back with my adventures (?) on Monday. I love a good challenge!

What would you do to make the most of $9.59?

You and I think so much alike, it makes me laugh! I get excited about those things too. Including the 4 $5 survey checks I received over the past couple of weeks! :) I look forward to hearing what you do with all that new found wealth! ;)

When are you closing on your house again? Moving day will be here before you know it!!

I'm crossing my fingers for August 20th (that's the date that was projected)!

Hmm, for $9.59, I would go the the dvd Redbox at the local grocery store and rent 2 movies ($1.00 each), buy some microwave popcorn & a small tub of Chunky Monkey ice cream. Then, I'd come home and totally veg out all evening.

My closing date is September 14th! Did you already have your inspection?

Yep, I'm all good to go as long as all of the bank's approvals go through.
