Wish us luck

October 31st, 2007 at 08:08 pm

My nephew who graduated from the fire fighter program in June finally got an interview this past Saturday and he took a test...keep your fingers crossed for him; he won't know or about a month. My other nephew who was diagnosed with Schizophrenia got a job...it only pays $8 but at least he got a job with health care. He also has a learning disability so getting a job on his own really meant a lot to him

$20 challenge

October 31st, 2007 at 07:52 pm

Just upped my challenge. I added $16.09 in interest that was paid by ING and another $4.87 for not spending a dime today and rounding up my change

New total $4859.81

Happy Halloween

October 30th, 2007 at 08:17 pm

Just wanted to wish every one a safe and Happy Halloween. We are expecting a lot of rain from Noel so I may not get to see all the kids

Challenge

October 30th, 2007 at 06:58 pm

Just paid off another cc I do not know how I upped my cc after working so hard at paying them off. I did pay tuition and MD bills but my goodness. Anyhow, I did add another $101 to my challenge today so my new total os $4838.85 Smile I was rally hoping to make the $5k mark this month but oh well

$20 challenge

October 29th, 2007 at 05:30 pm

In the last few days I have been rounding up change and adding it to my challenge, something I have not done in a while. Anyhow I got my $5 from your2cents so that is definately going to my challenge. I cant wait until I have enough money like $20K for my house. I figure if I can save 12K a year or close to it, it will take me two years

My sister strikes again

October 28th, 2007 at 07:35 pm

I have not posted in a while but here we go. My nephew car broke down about two weeks ago and my sister ask my uncle to fix it, she only owes him for the parts. Anyhow, she has not paid him yet and the money he usd to get the parts was his cell phone money (big mistake). She was to pay him 3 Fridays ago and she hasn't. Now my mom is feeling bad and took the money out of some money she is holding (it is a little pool she deos too long to explain) with the expectation that my sister was going give my uncle his money. Well to make a long story short, she hasn't, she called me up n Friday ask me to pay him until she gets paid Thursday.The only reason why I am doing it is because of my mom because I know darn well that when Thursday roll around I will not see one damn dime until 3-4 weeks from now
I just needed to vent... she is so pathetic she'll go and get her hair done but won't pay the money she owes just pathetic

just checking in

I have been so busy like a little bee. This research class that I am taking is wearing me out...driving me crazy. I have not even updated my challenge. Unfortunately I am afraid to look at the amount of money spent dining out this month, because I am so busy with this class I hae eaten out, on the run almost every day this month Frown

Sold my car

October 9th, 2007 at 08:14 pm

Yep the car sold today for $300. I wish I could have added this amount to my challenge but I had t pay for the new car (payment)and car insurance

Less Interest

October 7th, 2007 at 07:07 am

I just noticed that ING has dropped their rates Frown I thought this is strange I am making less money than last month on a daily basis. So go back and review my statements compared to my online on and sure enough they went from 4.50% to 4.30% I guess I should not complain since they are paying more than my local bank

Good news

October 6th, 2007 at 09:16 pm

The girl who called last week about my car called today to say she has all the money and wanted to know if I could pick it up today, but I was on my way to work. So I will pick it up from her on Tuesday, so basically my car sold

$10 extra

October 6th, 2007 at 09:09 pm

I got an extra $10 today for being nice. A woman came in today on my part-time job who I helped out and she gave me $10 tip Smile so I added that as well as my weekly $25 to my challenge
new total $4699.71

Busy little bee

October 5th, 2007 at 07:50 pm

I have been so busy that I have not had time to thnink. Taking 3 classes, working both full and partime has had its toll. I have managed to spend a ton of money dining out because I am too lazy. I have however upped my CC balance (dentist and tuition) but on a good note I added to my challenge bring my total to $4662.99
I had a couple of offers on the car everyone wants it but has not bought it
Frown If it is not sold by Friday next week I am calling a junk yard to come and get it atleast I will get a little something
