Oh dear

September 24th, 2007 at 10:42 pm

Went to th dentist today for a second opinion and of course I was right my dentist screwed up my tooth. Firts the crown was not fully on and the cement that was used was getting into my tooth. $200 later and I am PO'd. Now it is going to cost me another $850 with the new dentist to repair Frown he did suggest that I go back to her and her to correct it but I have been there twice and the problem as not been fixed so I'd rather pay the money that I really don't have and get it taken care of. I did however charge today's service but I am taking the money from my EF to pay it off tomorrow Frown
On a good note, I finished my class project, I have no idea if it was done right or not at this point I don't care but we will see. I also added $25 to my challenge brining my new total to $4238.35
In regards to my car I got a ton of calls so hopefully it will sell by tomorrow

$20 challenge

September 24th, 2007 at 03:48 am

I just added $6.35 to the challenge because I spent that amount dining outFrown
so my new total is $4213.35

car for sale

September 24th, 2007 at 03:21 am

I just posted my car on craiglist, I hope some one takes me up on it I can use the cash. It's an really old car but very clean, they'll need back breaks and an alternator but I will be happy with $200 we'll see. If not I will call a junk yard to pick it up

Pulling my hair out

September 23rd, 2007 at 01:45 pm

I have been so busy, that I have not had time to think,save or anything else for that matter.

I am taking a research class Frown and it is the class from Hell. It may not be has hard as I think but it is a lot of work and rather than the instructor lecturing in class about the assignments he talks about other stuff and makes a video that he posts on his website in which he lectures about the assignment Frown

I have no clue what I am doingI sent him an e-mail to see if I was on the right track of course he has not responded

I have been eating out because I have been to busy with this assignment to even want to cook, so there as been a lot of money spent

On a different note I added $35 to my challenge since I did not go to the hair salon this week
New total $4206.97

Wow, it has been awhile

What I have learned is that if I am not blogging or reading other blogs about finanaces, I fall back into my old ways and that is wasting money. I have been busy with school (3 classes this semester) and have not had time to catch up on my blogging or finances. I have done a ton of shopping Frown so I guess I have fallen off the wagon. It is time to get back on track and make some serious changes.
I paid bills today and made some deposits to my challenge and IRA but my cc debt has risen to about $900 (I will update the total later) but atleast $700 of that is for school
Anyhow, I just wanted to give every one heads up and let you know I am still alive
Added $53 to the challenge
$205 on cc
$143 towards car (saving a little extra towards extra payments)
$30 EF
$10 misc account
$50 for IRA
$44 on water bill
$64 for Cable
$15 for meds
$20 tithes
$35 dentist (had some swelling)
I am still waiting on a check/deposit from Amazon for a book sold which will go towards my cc/school transactions
and I got an extra $5 to for a survey so I am adding this to the challenge as well

Busy Busy Busy

This has been a weekend in which I did nothing but a %%$# paper. Sorry, but I am a little upset. I started this paper over 2 weeks ago and the professor stated if we e-mailed him what we had, he would look it over and send back. Well when did I get my response? FRIDAY and of course it was all wrong. The topic was adverse selection, but I wrote the paper in essay format which should have been in a type of research format with an intro and hypthesis, tables, etc. I was up until 1am Friday and 2am Saturday and I just finished sent it to my friend who will proof it and if it is wrong then so be it. Then I let a classmate borrow a book for a different class, she was to return today but I won't see her until Tuesday....arrrrrgh!!!!!

Keeping up

September 2nd, 2007 at 02:34 am

I really need to keep up with my account balances or back them up. Some kind of a way my checking account was over by $607 I have no idea how and I could not remeber my balance (I do balance manually once a week). I think if I keep up with it here when ever there is a change I will be better off. I was able to balance (well come up with the correct balance) but was unable to find the error. I never balance on the computer (everything is written ) and I tried it for the first time (on the computer) which I think screwed up everything causing me to be over, but atleast it is taken care of.
Anyhow, yesterday was payday and I paid all bills that was due by the 15th and socked away $190 and still have $335 left. So I guess I am doing pretty well
