Car fixed.

September 30th, 2008 at 08:43 pm

Well nothing major was wrong with my car. It's was the battery. I also got an oil change and they had to plug two of my tires and also rotate them. All in all it cost me 142.06. I didn't have to use my EF after all.

Save yourself Account.

I just open Suze Ormen's save yourself account with TD AMERITRADE. I decided to close my x-mas account at the cu and open up one with TD AMERITRADE so that I can get that "free" $100 at the end of 12 months. I'm excited about this.

Selling stuff to pay off debt.

September 21st, 2008 at 12:56 pm

I have tons of baby stuff that I need to get rid of so I have been going on to Craig list in the wanted section to see who needs baby stuff and e-mailing them if I have what they are looking for yesterday I sold my dd's Exersaucer for $25 they are coming to get it tomorrow. I never now how much to sell things for. I was debating wither I should use it towards my debt. (DR way) or deposit it in my dd saving account towards college. I decided to put it towards debt since I am not on that step yet and the sooner I get out of debt the faster I can start saving for my next big goal a house after fully funding my Emergency Fund.

I made $25 babysitting my father-in law kids for 2 hours. not bad for the orginal plan I had to do nothing on a friday night. I put in in my account to pay my bills. What funny is we pay daycare $20 a day to keep our daugher. lol

Part-Time Job?

September 9th, 2008 at 02:46 pm

I just applied for a part-time job so that I can bring more income in. I need to hurry up, pay off this cc debt, increase my EF, and start to save for my house. I need to work on increasing my salary so that I can afford to buy a house. So I am working on my AAS degree hopefully that will bring up my salary. In January, we should get a standard of living raise but I have been disappointed the last few years. Nevertheless, I need not to complain because it is a salary. I went looking at town homes and they are nice. I just wish the yard were bigger. However, I am not even able to afford that on the salary I am making now. In addition, it looks like my job might be ending in the next year or two. Therefore, I have a lot on my plate.

Credit Card Debt Rant.

September 5th, 2008 at 12:51 am

Ok. I pay 405.00 a month to Target and everytime I think about what I could be doing with that money it makes me mad. I wish I would have found this board, Dave Ramsey and Suze Orman in my twenty maybe I wouldn't be in this mess. I would be so much further head. I guess 30 isn't a bad place to start but I'm upset. I guess I should be grateful that this is my only debt. My target date to be finish paying this debt off is the summer of 2009. but hopefully I can pay it off quicker with extra payments. I get so excited when it's payday because I know that this debt is being knocked down but it seems like its taking forever.
