Goodies in my Mailbox
It's a good thing there were a few goodies in my mailbox. Otherwise, I might be starting to panic about the so far unseen rent check from our tenants. Hopefully, that rent check shows up tomorrow or Wednesday!
But in the mailbox was a birthday card sent to my 4yo from his great-aunt and great-uncle. I opened the envelope and was able to hide the enclosed $25 ToysRUs gift card before I showed him the card. He certainly doesn't need any more toys anytime soon, so I'll be saving that gift card for a little cushion for his Christmas budget! SCORE!
I also received 3 (YES...THREE!!!) checks for online surveys. I've been snowflaking all the survey income to the HELOC, but I'm thinking I might use these to start whittling away at Chase Card #2. It carries the highest interest rate of all my debt, and I'm feeling strong urges to see some progress on the balance no matter how small. The 3 checks I received total a whopping $37.65, but hey, that's over 1% of the balance on that card.
