Anytime I throw out a piece of food gone bad, or make an extra car trip on a weekend when I should have done it on my way home one day, when I misplace something that now needs to be replaced, I kick myself.
This week I found myself in one of those "misplaced something that now needs replacing" circumstances. A couple of months ago my Mom told me that drivers aren't supposed to keep their ownership/proof of insurance in their glove compartment in case their car is stolen. Made sense, so I put the envelope in my purse.
I of course can not find said ownership and insurance slips. I have 3 purses, and it's not in either. I have 2 backpacks, and it's not in either of those. I checked my filing cabinet, kitchen drawers, and nightstand. No luck.
So, this week I spent $10 replacing my ownership slip. That could have bought me 3 days worth of gas, a month's worth of milk, or 1 sushi lunch out. Dumb, dumb, dumb!
