Emergency Fund, Missing Money Back, and Farm Sales

April 4th, 2016 at 02:23 pm

Last month I found that some money seemed to be missing from one of my savings accounts. I was sure I hadn't made any errors, and my paperwork supported me. I adjusted my numbers accordingly until it could get figured out.

Now that missing money is suddenly back in the account. No explanation and no one seems to know what I am talking about. So I adjusted the EF accordingly again now that it is back. So my new starting total for the EF has changed.

I have made $30 in farm sales so far this month. I sold two flats of strawberry plants for $20 and 2 dozen duck eggs for $10. Not bad. I also received a $12 check from Pinecone. All of that goes to the Emergency Fund. I am so close to $17K now I can taste it.

$16,892.30 Starting Balance
+__,_12.00 Pinecone Check
+__,_30.00 April Farm Sales
+__,_43.00 Leftover March Grocery Money
+__,___.02 CU #2 Interest Income
$16,977.32 New Balance

$22.68 to go to hit my second mini-goal of the year of $17,000.

    I think I have some Pinecone money to redeem, too.

    So close to your next goal! How much money was missing?

    Guess what? Banks make mistakes. I know, I work for one. Although they should send you a letter telling you what's going on. I'm the one who writes those letters, and we like to get them out to head off a deluge of phone calls.

    Strange but at least the money reappeared.

    CCF--$175 and some change. It was the amount of a deposit made a few months ago.

    PS--Yeah, I know they do. That's why we are to balance our accounts each month and catch any mistakes. My problem was with them suddenly not knowing about it when the money reappeared. They obviously investigated my claim and returned the money, but it was like no one wanted to admit what happened after the fact. They acted as if since the money was returned I should no longer have any issues. I just wanted to know what they did. Guess I never will.

    VS--Yeah, that's the important thing.
