Yesterday was a good money day for me. Correction: yesterday, was a good financial day for me.
About 4pm I confirmed a notary client that initially wanted to meet in Silver Lake, then later in Glendale. That allowed me to negotiate a higher travel fee, and upon arrival, what turned out to be two signatures, doubled to four. 13 miles from home and seven minutes of my time turned into a $95 service I was paid for.
On the way home from said notary client, I noticed Navient sent me an email regarding my next student loan repayment invoice. And I didn’t want to hear, especially since I had just got finished paying this month’s bill. But as I was reading the email notice – then later confirmed when I logged online to the website – my payment fee had dropped roughly $66.
Okay. I can get on board that. That doesn’t mean more money for me to spend, just that I gotta get wiser how I use the money I’m “saving”.
And to add the cherry on my pie, I learned through my credit card app and banking app that my credit score had jumped 28 points.
I feel as if I’m on a very good financial high. Like, if I continue to curtail my unnecessary spending, monitor my credit, pay down/off debt and save for my future, I really might get to that lovely I often see in my head and call my “future life”.
How’s your financial week looking?
