Hello Frugal Confessions Readers! Check out here what this series is all about.
Here is my confession of the week:
I never carry around cash. It’s one of my pitfalls (and drives my fiance crazy!). A few weeks ago I borrowed $4 for a fundraiser at work from a close colleague of mine. In the last several weeks I haven’t had any cash on hand to pay him back, and the thought of taking $20 out of the atm to do so was gut-wrenching for me. So one day this colleague, me, and a bunch of others were going to go to pick up a sandwich to eat. He ended up not being able to go last minute, but still needed to eat. I jumped on the opportunity. I said “oh–no worries. I will get you your sandwich and we can call it even.” This was fine with him.
What he didn’t know was that I had a buy-one-get-one-free coupon for the sandwich shop we were going to. So, I bought my lunch, and got his sandwich for free, and now we’re even! Sometimes you have to get creative when you don’t carry around cash…
What are your confessions for this week? Remember, you can confess something from years ago, or from more recently–whatever you prefer. I’m dying to hear about it.
