Find Your “Lost” Money.

I was racking my brain the last several days trying to find a way to fill in the gaps in our budget.  I’m certain that what I found isn’t going to happen to everyone, but I imagine that many of you will have “lost” funds that fall into this same category.

I remembered that about two years ago I prepaid for come chiropractic visits because my chiropractor at the time was offering some pretty good discounts to do so. After that, I got very busy, kept forgetting to go, and the problem I was going for seemed to go away on it’s own.

Flash forward two years or so, and I remembembered that the money was still there. I called the office and now have a check for around $500 on its way to me. I wouldn’ t recomend using this method as some sort of odd “savings account,” as some business might have a no-refund policy. But there it was when we needed it. Makes me wonder what else I might have forgotton about…..
