Bob Bob the Bankerman

Forgot to report on Saturday's Bank Run.

09/02/06 deposited $2.04.

I can see that it's going to be a little difficult to come up w/money for both the Bank Run and the $20 Challenge, but I'm still going to try and do both.

Bob the Bankerman is my Dad's old banker that lived in his town about an hour away. Bob recently moved to my town and can now be my banker. Hi Bob! Glad to have you in town. Thankfully my Dad is no slacker in the money department and has a good relationship w/Bob so there is no need for head-hanging-in-shame! Thanks Dad!

Ran into Bob at the bank on Saturday. Living High on the Hog! Now I'm not saying, but do you think Bob looks a bit too much like a typical fat cat???

Well, frankly my dear...

Bob, my man, we have a walking track here in town, did anybody show you where it's located? There is such a limited time to say such a thing to a newcomer, isn't there?

BANK RUN CHALLENGE - This is something I've been doing for a long time. The money on the bank run goes into my Me Myself and I personal femalish self's retirement money. It's private, ya know?

Saturday Night & I Ain't Got No Money

August 26th, 2006 at 08:32 am

Well at least that's what I'll happily be singing tonight anyways.

On Saturday mornings I make my bank run depositing anything leftover from my Allowance Money for the week. So in that pot there is 1.39! Inotherwords, I stayed under Spending/Allowance budget by 1.39 this week. YEAH ME!!

Next week's allowance is paid out by the banker (me) from money I got out in cash on the 1st of the month. Monday mornings I'll be starting fresh with 5.00 in my pocket to last the week for 'blow' money. $2.50 or less of that will likely go somewhere at a place where I'll unwrap my food in the drivethru for my splurge lunch. Not always but most weeks I do treat myself to a takeout lunch. Woo-hoo, big spender!!

Not everyone would be happy with this scenario because they like to carry cash and they like to go out shopping on Saturday. Or they like to let alot of money slip away unaccounted for. I don't. Any of those things. Sunday's money is always for tithe and it's written out of checkbook and if we have PLANNED and BUDGETED to eat out on Sunday then the money is either available in cash or w/a debit card.

But today's Bank Run Deposit is 1.39! Meaning 1.39 is going today to ING to be put out at hard labor earning me some buckos!!


3.34 last week
1.39 +
4.73 MONTHLY BANK RUN $'s to date
(I'll have to check later and see what amounts went earlier in the month pre-blog)

19 August 2006 - Cash On Hand

Reporting here spare change that has been run to the local bank to be put out to work at interest. I run it to the bank and then I run myself home and move it online to somewhere like INGdirect.com or Emigrantdirect.com and put it to work earning interest. Yeah, in my truck, like I'm really running! You have got to be kidding!!
