Oh Boy

October 30th, 2006 at 05:13 pm

Ok I went out for lunch ...big mistake beecause I know I should not be spending on dining out. I als paid an extra $23.86
on the c so I am happy with that. Looking at my bills and how I havecut back on expenses I decided to pay off cc2 and not add any money to the saving and that will be the last of my cc. But I do have my mom's which must be paid but the interest is so low on that ..I owe a little more than $500. So looks like I am meetin my goals

Sunday paper

October 29th, 2006 at 04:55 pm

I bought the Sunday paper today and it was .54 cents, usually it's $1..25+ tax but I am glad it was on sale because there were no coupons in the paper (none that I could use)

Internet bill

October 29th, 2006 at 04:52 pm

Now my sister told me on Friday that she got the bill rom Verizon for my broadband, now she says she did not say that. The account is in her name because it was cheaper for me and now I am thinking I made a huge mistake. one should never conduct business with family

100 points

October 29th, 2006 at 03:59 pm

I just checked my TransUnion credit score, ( I disputed a couple of charges)anyway my score went from 618 to 715...I could not believe it. I guess paying more than the minium and payind down debt really helps. I disputed a couple of other things wit Experian and Equifax so we'll see what happens

Having poblems with the site

October 29th, 2006 at 03:03 pm

I hate when I am unable to read all the bogs. I hguess this my clue to study

Disturbing

October 29th, 2006 at 02:25 pm

I have a friend who I think needs psychological help; there is something seriously wrong with her. Well today was the icing on the cake, she verbally abuses her son. Don't get me wrong I think she love him but she either can not express her love in a positive way or she really has not been conditioned to know what love really is. Anyway she was yelling at him about saving money and that she though he should learn to save money. Then she goes on to tell him that there will be times when he will want to do some things and can't because he did not save his money. But here is the kicker she tells him "there are plenty of times I wish I could do something thins but I can't because I had you" can you believe that. I did tell her that, that was not nice and she owed him an apology but her response was " he knows what I mean" I thought at 8, yeah right you meant every word you said it I am sure it was not the first time nor will it be the last

I did it !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

October 29th, 2006 at 07:18 am

I am so happy I paid off my high interest CC (30%) I am so happy ( I keep doing that). I took a look at my account and I had little more than a $10000 just sitting there earning about $3.00 a month and this high interest CC paying about $40 a month in interest so I said pay it off and I did. My goal is to be debt free by December 31st and atleast $3000 in the EF. Now that this CC is paid off I can really start saving. I am going to write the CC company and ask them to remove any activity on my credit report regarding this cc. I was never late always paid on time as well as paying more than the minium, but I closed this account which I am sure will have a negative affect on my score...we'll see

Previous CC total: $2255.91
New Ttoal :$1242.93

Thank God I am not clueless

October 28th, 2006 at 07:56 pm

As you all know I work a part-time job and the security guard here has no clue. I have no idea why he is here. Why is it those who really need a job and will work can't find work and those who are useless always have a job? The fire alarm went off tonight so I radio him to let him know he needs to check the panel...he is going around and around then the fire department comes and wants to check the panel in the electrical room...guess what he has no idea where it is. He has been here for 3+ years walk the premises from 4 to 7 and then from 10 to 12 for 3 years and do not know where the electrical room is. I have been here only for a couple of months and he is asking me. When ever you ask him a question the answer is "I don't" Sometimes I just ask to be asking because I know the answer...he has never answered without saying "I don't know" I mean how can one do their job and feel productive when you absolutely have no clue

Holloween Party

October 28th, 2006 at 05:40 pm

I am working my part time job nd the kids cames in as a surprise for the seniors...how cute. There cheerleaders, Indians, belly dancer, clowns, witches...you name it. They were adorable I can not wait until Tuesday

Paying down the cc

October 28th, 2006 at 05:15 pm

Well I checked my statements online and the interest on the cc are pain. When you think are making some head way you gwet a bill and there it is the interest. Anyway I paid extra on the CC ($28.24) brining my new total to $2255.91 from $2265.58 all in the game of interest

First test

October 28th, 2006 at 05:02 pm

I am a little annoyed the class that I am taking t night is one of the worst. I am sure you all have read where i have compalined about this gu talking about nothing from the book that I paid $100 for and nothing really to do with health care in the class. Anyway i get my test back and I missed 11 out of 24 which was worth 1.5 points each. Now it's ironic that about 98% of the class had the very same out come. There was one question that no one remembered him discussing but he says so and one person got the question right by guessing...so I am thinking maybe it's him. Another student asked him about another question in wich everyone got wrong he says "I don't know I made it up" Now he gives us the test the day before add/drop (this is the onl test ) so therefore even if I wanted to drop it I can'r because he never gave us the grade until two weeks later. Any way he ended up giving us 3 points and changed each questins worth from 1.5 to 1 so that boosted me up to 32 out of 40 points. What a jerk...sorry I just had to vent
Basically I am paying a dollar on the cc for the B i got on the test

Dining Out

October 28th, 2006 at 04:36 pm

Wow I have spent a ton of money this month eating out. I was simply to lazy to do anyhing (cook) this month. Total thus far $92 over by $49 for the month that is not good.

Mypoints $ GC

October 27th, 2006 at 06:19 pm

I am not sure who turned me on to mypoints but wow am I happy. I got my $10 GC for Bath & Body Works which will be a part of a X-mas gift for some one or maybe I'll treat myself. I am going to keep earning mypoints for free gifts

Free Lunch

October 26th, 2006 at 09:58 am

Well I used my couo today for free lunch at Picadilly's and saved $6.38. I have not been there, since the little incident with the manager...but the service with all the other emloyees are excetional. So my new total in coupon savings is $31.27

$20.25 on cc

October 25th, 2006 at 05:12 pm

well I ate out today for lunch..I could not find my coupon for a free lunch Frown I also treated my co-worker so I paid $15.45. I also ate out yesterday...with all the mess going on with Bush being here in FL I was starving and stopped at the first fast food place I laid eyes on. Any how, to make up for the money I spent dining out I paid it on the CC

New total:$2265.58

Bush in FL...what a headache

October 24th, 2006 at 01:54 pm

That d** Bush was here in FL today turning my day into a living H** after I left class today, what usually takes me less than 5 minutes to get on the highway; it took about 20 minutes and I was still unable to get on so I make a u-turn. Driving along an alternate route the police are maneuvering traffic so now I am in another traffic jam. What should have taken me 20 minutes took 1.5 hour. Now I do not mind if he comes or goes I do not care but what bothers me is the production. If they were to put him in as small care with secret service and not make this big production with 10 different cars 10 different police and 10 different agencies I am sure things would be much better..Sorry I just had to vent

Another buck on the cc

October 24th, 2006 at 09:52 am

No spend day today so another buck on the cc new total $2285.83

Another No Spend Day

October 23rd, 2006 at 05:17 pm

So another dollar was added to the challenge/debt fund. I am rockin' and rolling now

New Total: $2286.83

Trying to meet goals

October 22nd, 2006 at 06:52 pm

Well I added $19.28 to my EF to make it an even $1400.00 this is the most I have ever saved since I can rember. Other than tax returns I have never had over $200 in my savings account just sitting there..this year has really been a year of accomplishments and I am so happy. I also paid $15.88 on cc reducing my overall balance to $2287.83...wow I feel like I will be reaching my goals after all. I am hoping to have atleast the cc's paid off by December 31 and $3000.00 in my EF so I can start socking away my checks for a house

Today's Spending

October 22nd, 2006 at 05:59 pm

Prior to coming to work I had to hit Publix which cost me more than it would have, had I gone to Walmart; but that place drives me crzy. Any way I spent $44.47 here is where it all went:
1.20 sales tax
1.25 for a news paper
$9.90 for disposable utensil and container because after what I saw at work on Friday I will not be using anything in that kitchen
$32.12 on groceries
I was able to save $.75 with my coupon so that was a plus

No studying

October 22nd, 2006 at 05:39 pm

I am work (part-time ) and can not study because this securtiy gaurd will not find something to do...nor will he shut up. Then there is the driver who will would not leave (he is off todybut stopped in) he finally left and now I am stuck with the guard. I guess he can not see I am trying to study I am simply not in the mood

Paying down debt slowly but surely

October 21st, 2006 at 07:59 am
