hurry up and wait

I'm waiting to pay off a credit card. I have the money, but I have to make sure a check clears first. It really feels wonderful, though- this is exactly the feeling I was hoping for on wednesday when I was feeling sorry that we had no fresh food to eat.

I'm having a superbowl party on sunday, to celebrate my new job. I paid for the groceries by coinstarring my change jar to the tune of 60 bucks. This is kind of the essence of the YOFL- mindless saving that results in fun stuff without blowing the budget or using credit cards. I'm wondering if its going to keep getting easier, since its been so successful. I really cant/shouldnt complain, even if I DO have to wait that check out a few days.
