Out of Sight, Out of Mind

For someone who is very interested in his money, mostly because he needs it to fill up his car with gas, Nathan does a pretty bad job of keeping his cash organized.  He’s got some in his bathroom drawer, some on the floor of his room, some in his backpack, and some spilling out of the cup holder in his car.  And who knows where else.

So he decided the other day to collect it all and see how much there was.  Over $300.   He was thrilled.  I was not.  That’s a lot of money to have lying around.  He put it all in a baggie and there it sits on the family room table.  Still.

But as he passed the table last night and glanced at the bag he said, “I need to get that money into my checking account.  I don’t spend it if I can’t see it.”

Ah, so true.  So maybe there was a lesson in this after all.
