Every month some of my cash mysteriously disappears. Usually about $20-50 just falls through. I write it off as “Miscellaneous Household”. Granted, it’s a small amount, but puzzles me because I usually collect all the receipts, and I mean ALL receipts. It’s making me crazy because I haven’t been able to go at least 1 whole month without this weird loss. A year ago it was much worse though, I used to “lose” $100-150 and my memory was completely blank as to where the money could’ve gone.
So at least my attempts to keep track have made these undetectable losses smaller. Next month I’ll try to do without cash at all and have every transaction recorded in our checking/credit accounts.
