Very Small Unexpected Expense

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Bear with me for this post is about a boring small unexpected expense probably well below a lot of viewers' pay grade.  Today my Homelite electric weed wacker died. So I bought a new one on my AMEX card and applied a portion of my earned points to cover the cost. Okay, so what you may think. Well in my world, being on a strick budget with modest family income, this was the first time in my life that I ever applied reward points to a purchase. Also I am inching towards complete prior year IRA contributions. Just makes me feel in control knowing I've micro-managed our finances and handled the earned pts from my rewards card. My backyard thanks me too after all this overgrowth from the rains. Thanks for reading.

Congrats on your first redemption!  

 

Someone will be along soon to tell you that you could have transferred the MRs to Air Neptune to use in a premium cabin on an intergalactic flight, but I like to say that the most valuable redemptions are the ones you actually do.  

 

"In control" is a powerful feeling.  Run with it. :D

Hey!  The FIRST rule of Air Neptune is that we DO NOT discuss upgrades on Air Neptune!
