Searching for Money

May 14th, 2008 at 06:00 am

I canít find my Microsoft Money disk anywhere. I want to load it on my laptop since that is what I use all the time now. DH is all geekified into World of Warcraft (insert HUGE eyeroll here) and Iím tired of fighting with him for the desktop.

I have searched high and low for that disk, and even opened all the other disks to make sure it didnít get stashed in the wrong cover. I havenít seen it in years but I havenít needed it and figured it was with all our other disks. What a PITA.

Do I make the $10 investment to put it on my laptop? I think I will since it will allow me to stay on top of things easier.

I have some cash stashed for the $20 challenge but I havenít counted it yet. I really need to make a trip to the credit union.

A few things that made me happy this past week: the grocery store had a great deal and I now have 12 boxes of cereal and 12 boxes of fruit snacks for very little OOP (I think around $8) and I still have a few $3 off register rewards. I used my $10 JCPenney coupon for nearly free underwear. My favorite hand soap was on sale for less than half price. Things are slowly getting back on track.

Now if I could just get my receipts entered into Money I could see how bad the damage is so I can make corrections. I bet the disk is with the $1 off Peter Pan coupon I lost and they are laughing at me.

    I can picture the CD and Peter Pan coupon, laughing so hard they have to hold each other up. Weird what can flash into my head. We use Quicken and I also find that this type of software helps me keep on top of things.

    Perhaps Captain Hook is holding them hostage.

    If you still can't find your Microsoft Money disk, check Ebay before paying $10 for one. You generally can get older versions for $1 plus shipping.
