$256.85 is the amount I owe on my car, thank God. But I won't be able to pay it off this month as planned because I need a new bed Frown
I'll be financing a bed today because I do not want to take the money out of my EF. You see, what I have saved is enough to cover two months rent in case something happens. My goal is to have at least 6-8 months worth of expenses saved.

Here is the plan, finance a bed at Badcock for $800, sell the bed we currently have for $500 and use that money towards the payments of the new bed.

So if all goes well I can have the purchase of the new bed paid off by next month with very little interest.

On a different note, yesterday was pay day and I wasn't able to save anything Frown but at least I have about $300 in disposable funds until next pay day and if call goes well, I should be able to sock half of it away

Next week is my Mother's birthday and I thought about calling her but to be honest I really don't want to, and honestly I probably won't

That's it in a nut shell

    Amber, I've been told that buying a bed (mattress) is like buying a car in that you should never pay sticker price. Bargain. Ask when it will be on sale. Even if it is on sale, bargain. Hem and haw. Give them your phone number and tell them to call you when the price comes down to X. Then watch the sales person go consult her manager and come back with a better price.

    @ Joan I wish I had checked my blog before I went in; unfortunately, no bargaining. So far though I think the new mattress has helped Smile

    I did not know about bargaining for mattresses until after I bought my last --very expensive-- one. Frown I now think I overpaid by a lot. Hope your new bed is a dream! That's the most important thing when you've been using a bad one.

    I had forgotten what a big difference a good mattress can lead to when you've been sleeping on a bad one, and we just recently got a GOOD one again! Oh, man, have I been sleeping better, so it is definitely worth it. It really is insurance against a lot of ills, just getting a good night of sleep. Enjoy that new bed!

    Thanks, Jerry. I am enjoying the new bed
