Backstory! I have a small spare bedroom that is basically an “I store all the crap here” room. About a month ago I got back from a vacation at about midnight and had to be at work 9 hours later. Needless to say, a lot of stuff just got shoved in that room to be future me’s problem.

Found about yesterday that a friend needs to crash at my place this weekend. Which is no big deal — I’m super excited to see them! But this room needs to get cleaned asap so my friend has a bed to sleep on.

So, I’m going through stuff and cleaning. As I’m excavating the squalor, I find an envelope. The envelope I packed my cash in during the trip. DUMB ME did not realize there was still cash in that envelope. UGH!!! Like, I haven’t been in shit shape since getting back, but it’s been tight and had I cleaned my shit sooner, I could have spent that cash instead of using my bank account.

Moral of the story: I need to clean my shit up more often so I don’t make dumb mistakes like this.
