OMG yes about loosening the purse strings.
Shaunta Grimes

Oddly enough, I probably do have at least $100 lying “lost” around my house, but only because I’m so neurotic about money that I’ll hide money from myself. I don’t know the exact amount that’s hidden around the house, but when I get $5 or $10, I’ll periodically hide it in a coat pocket or under a pile of books. That way, I know that even if I drain my savings account, there’s still *something* left to get a tank of gas or a few groceries with. It would take several hours of searching to find it all, but that’s sort of the point.

Of course, if I tidied up, I’d hardly be shocked by what I found, since I know full and well that I hoard small amounts all over the house.
