Every Little 1 Thing I Do, I Do It For You (Me)

Thursday is a great day to do that 1 thing you don’t want to do but also don’t want to continue thinking about doing. (Friday is also an acceptable day.)  

Last month I got charged the first overdraft fees I’ve had in many many months. I knew I’d spent too much money at the beginning of the month, but I dealt with that by hoping it would all work out. It usually does! This time it did, too, except in addition to working out, it also worked out into three $30 overdraft fees on automatic payments, plus an additional $25 from a credit card. I got the credit union to refund me one of the overdraft fees and the credit card company to refund me the fee on this part, but still: I do not have $60 to be throwing away. I mean, $60 could cover all my ATM fees for the month! (Not really.) (But kind of.) (I’m going to fix that.)

So my 1 thing for this week was that I cancelled all of my automatic payments so overdrafts will not happen again. (A previous 1 thing was to set up all those automatic payments.)

BUT this is a great first step towards changing banks, a think I’ve been talking about for … a year.

Bittman Says Bring Your Lunch to Work, But What About People Who Find It a Chore?

Bringing your lunch to work is a personal finance staple, but Mark Bittman doesn't talk about it in the context of saving you money in his recent column in the Times's dining section—he talks about it being rewarding and as a way eat stuff at work that's of "higher quality than almost anything you’re able to buy in your neighborhood." Make a couple of sauces or vinaigrettes in advance, roast some vegetables or a chicken, make a good pot of beans and the lunches you bring to work are soon going to be something you look forward to eating, he argues. Ah, but here the thing: People who enjoy cooking will no doubt do this and are already the types who have less of a problem of bringing lunch to work. It's the people who find cooking a chore that he needs to find a solution for; it's unlikely that they're going to roast a chicken or mince a shallot to make a vinaigrette. They are going to spread some peanut butter on some bread and call it a day. [Thanks to Anya for the link!]
