The tale of loose pockets.

Yesterday at work, my last five bucks for the week fell out of my pants and disappeared into the office chaos. I was really annoyed, and walked around the corner to the atm to get some lunch money. Grumble, grumble.

Then I noticed that the mexican chain restaurant had flyered the place with ads. In one corner, they had left a stack of five dollar gifts certificates! I grabbed about a dozen of them, and got myself a huge bowl of nachos for 13 cents! and for lunch today, I got a big bowl of gumbo for 51 cents! I'm heading by the atm soon to see if there are any more, and I'll be eating cheap for most of August!

Sometimes loosing five bucks can save you $50!
