I just spent my Christmas savings.
Well, most of it anyway. I'd saved $406 (thanks to Moni's weekly savings plan), and spent $375 on a riding mower I bought off Craigslist.
I was happy to have that much cash available because I hadn't planned to buy the mower. I've been thinking of it as a possibility at some point, but hadn't looked at Craigslist in weeks. Then this morning I wanted to post an ad to sell something of my own, and thought I'd take a quick look at Farm & Garden. There--in an ad just posted this morning--was a very nice mower at a very nice price. And it was delivered by a very nice man who took very nice care of the mower. Turned out he's retired mechanic. :-)
So he's happy and I'm happy. And I will replace the Christmas money as soon as I get to the bank.
