Good Money News

Some good money news today!

- David got a raise - $88.18 per paycheck net, so about $176 net per month. This is huge for us! I was having to steal money from other categories to make up about $50 for F's tuition. I am doing the fun bit now: allocating the extra money in our budget.

- His raise also means another $16 into his savings plan at work

- I paid $55 to get a diagnostic on my very, very broken computer. They called me to say that there was bad news and good... Bad news: it's really, really broken (I knew that) - the motherboard is completely messed up. Which I gather is like having your brain removed or something. The good news: Apple is fixing it for FREE under its quality program. I told the guy it wasn't still covered by Applecare, but he said this isn't an Applecare thing. It's a known problem with this computer, so they fix it free no matter how old it is!!! I am amazed and so happy!

- I just got a text from the gym... they want me to sub a class I was going to take anyway. It's not a lot more money, but it'll mean more toward the mortgage.

    Isn't Apple wonderful! I hope you hold AAPL- O stock. I wonder if you could make the case that since it is known that this particular model has a problem, in fairness to consumers, you should be reimbursed the $ 55. sum for diagnosis. What do you think?

    I'd expect a happy dance character for three good news $$$ announcements in one day. Shall I presume you're using dramatic license when you suggest you're 'stealing' ... moving funds from one category to another? After all, your drafted the budget and you chose how to fund the categories. [haha] When circumstances change, I shift money around and call it prudent. We're all see things so differently here at SA.

    BTW, do you use your toaster oven and see it as a helpful appliance?
