OK, we have overdraft protection on our checking account. This usually catches anything I overspend and the bank pays it and charges us a fee. I won’t even tell you how many times we have had to pay the bank a $30 fee for this service recently. It’s not pretty. Anyway, we got so deeply in the red in our checking account this past month, that I had a check actually returned for non-sufficient funds. That hasn’t happened to me since I was married to Joe, and that time it wasn’t my fault. This time, it was.
I waited, and they did put it back through a week later, and it was paid. That same day, I saw a charge for $50 credited to my account. It said “EFT Transfer” so I thought that it was a $50 fee deducted for the returned check. I put it in my check register as that, and that was $50 gone that I really really needed. Ended up, however, that this was actually a $50 payment I had made to Dell computers on our account. So we actually have $50 more than we thought, which brings us up to $50. Bonus.
But I am kind of glad I did that, because if I had known I had $150 in the bank instead of $100 yesterday, I might have spent $145 on groceries instead of $95. At least this way I have $50 for Hubby’s gasoline. I am meeting a friend in a couple of days to give her the products she ordered and collect my funds, which should be another $50. Then, my loving niece Tiffany just ordered $50 worth of stuff too, so that ought to help a great deal. My mother-in-law owes us $20 for the pledge she made for Princess’s “rock-a-thon”, which we went ahead and paid the night of the event.
I appreciate everyone who has bought stuff from my Pure Romance stock, it is really helping immensely. I don’t know how I can clear the rest of my inventory out. I don’t think I am allowed to sell these on EB@y if I am still affiliated with PR. But I just looked and there are a lot of people selling the products on here. Maybe I *should* just put it all on Eb@y. I think I’ll do a quick inventory to see what I have.
