Got a pseudo-bonus this week

June 7th, 2017 at 05:41 am

My new job gives me a continuing education stipend. In April, I went to a conference and submitted the receipts for the conference itself and the hotel bill. I knew I would get it back eventually but didn't know when. So it was a nice surprise to get my check yesterday and have it contain an extra $1,400.

It really is "found" money to me. Whether I had this job or not, I still would have gone to the conference but I would have had to pay for it out of pocket.

What will we do with the money? I wish I had an interesting or exciting answer but it will just go toward college costs for the coming year. I'm trying to minimize the amount of the Parent PLUS loan that we need to take out and this will help.

    I think that putting your found money to college expenses is exciting! My husband is getting per diem for his three month school this summer. We may end up with $4500! I'm definitely saving making that count towards our goals.

    With college costs much on our minds too, it is great to have some cash to throw at them.

    Great idea to use that money for college costs. And what a blessing to get it paid for since you planned to attend anyway.
