I meant to get a picture of our old Maytag washing machine because you would have laughed out loud (George really did duct tape the housing together).
After some research, we knew we wanted a Speed Queen. He called around, found a local dealer and went by to look at them and get more info. The dealer explained the features and then went over pricing.
My sweet non-confrontational husband stood there. (The last person who speaks loses.) The dealer then thought to ask him if this would be a cash deal. George nodded and all the sales tax was waived.
It all happened so fast I forgot to get that amount and move it. But we did save some significant money thanks to “cash”. Why did I put that in quotation marks? Because “cash” to them meant they didn’t have to do the paperwork to finance it in house. They had no problems taking Visa so we got to put another big chunk on our Costco rewards card.*
* We use our Costco card like a debit card and it is paid in full every evening. They hate us.
I keep noticing the gym money we budget each month. Our gym is crazy inexpensive as it’s in a large church a full blocks from our house. It bugs me though because two people I know haven’t been there since the first week of May. I’m moving the funds to the Money Game. If we start going to the gym, I’ll take some personal spending money to replace it. (The fees are $170/year for unlimited visits for both os us. We’re paid up until next March.)
Try going through your own expenses and see if you have a subscription or membership for something you no longer use. You may find some extra funds too.
