These are our #1GoodMoneyThing!
August 31, 2015
We are Groot! aka: y’all are wonderful.
Monday: Worked on our mortgage refi application which didn’t work out but I shall prevail!
Tuesday: Me: How about we retire in 7 yrs? PiC: Don’t get my hopes up. # # gets you there.
Wednesday: Transferring money into brokerage acct. [BTW: TradeKing is giving a $100 signup referral bonus right now! Let me know if you want one.]
Thursday: Added $6000 to savings from a matured CD.
Friday: I think my # today’s going to be cooking up a new batch of veggies for LB. No buying jarred food!
Accidentally took Saturday and Sunday off, but we stayed at a friend’s house instead of a hotel for an overnight trip so I’m calling that our weekend #1GoodMoneyThing!
So many people have chimed in with #1GoodMoneyThing tweets. I tried to catch them all – it was harder if it wasn’t hashtagged because I’d have to see it real time and they fly by quickly – but you’re just knocking it out of the park! You’re not just doing it, you’re sharing it with new folks.
Now, look at y’all go!
@PhoenixStorm24 #1GoodMoneyThing for today would be buying smaller bunches of fresh fruits/veggies to stretch $10.
@civilwarbore Goat Lady’s Financial Tip: save $$ and keep your peace of mind by getting a dumb fridge instead of a smart fridge.
@accordingathena Let’s see, today I only paid for parking & worked my side hustle! #win
@accordingathena: Spent a ton at the mechanics with a quote for $3,000 worth more of work but used a $35 coupon for today’s repairs at least.
@femmefrugality: Cancelled the spa membership I signed up for yesterday in post-massage euphoria.
@evil_bat_witch: @femmefrugality @RevancheGS #1GoodMoneyThing doing the same for cable bought for hockey reasons. Can’t record, won’t pay $20/mo for a DVR.
Mom Kristen @PhoenixStorm24: #1GoodMoneyThing for today: selling the second car seat!
Athena @accordingathena: Didn’t spend any money today. #1goodmoneything
Evil B Witch @evil_bat_witch: @RevancheGS #1goodmoneything got all 4 of my scrips in 1 trip, instead of the 2 or even 3 i usually do:D
@windycitygal: I’m going to say my #1GoodMoneyThing today was only buying lunch instead of lunch + breakfast + snack. Was working in SF today.
@clareyfrey: Re-signed our lease at our apartment complex but moving down to a unit that is $200 less per month in October.
@imawindycitygal: Walked and took public transit to the office today. No driving, so no gas used. And I got more exercise! 🙂 #1goodmoneything
@NotSoSerene: About to go pay off my car loan 8 months early #1goodmoneything

@NotSoSerene @thenonconsumer – it’s your #1goodmoneything and that’s something!!
@femmefrugality: Did street parking instead of the pricier lot. #parallelpark what’s up! #1GoodMoneyThing
@clareyfrey: @RevancheGS Now that we earn more than we did when he opened it, @FreyDrew converted his traditional IRA to a Roth. #1goodmoneything
