Brownies on a budget
I finally received a check in the mail today from General Mills. The amount? $3.99. The reason? Free brownies with a mail-in rebate.
Now if that doesn't show a commitment to a budget, I don't know what does. Waiting a month and a half for a mail-in rebate for 4-buck brownies may not seem worth the effort, but I really am serious about setting a budget for myself and seeing it through. So far it's worked out really well, and if I end up taking the job at UPS I'll be more than doubling my income. Looks like my VOX AC15 may not be that far off after all...
