Went Home Early yesterday

October 31st, 2006 at 07:30 am

Because we have a Sign up List to go Home Early if it is Slow depending on the Call Flow and How many People are working.

I LOST out on $66 EEK! I don't think I will do that again.

In fact I need to tighten my belt again.

Free?! ????? AM I Nuts??

October 17th, 2006 at 10:07 pm

I got my Rent.com Gift Card today. Its so Pretty LOL!

I am bad, or maybe it was a Good Decision?

I signed up for COSTCO. WHY? LOL. TOO FUNNY.

They had this cute little Thermos that says "Costco Wholesale" on it, I was able to get a couple of Costco Pens and a $10 Cashback. I LOVE FREE STUFF! They were at my work. I am a freak like that but I did get a Membership. But here is the deal! I can Request a Refund anytime! No Trial period or anything! But I wouldn't do that unless I knew I absolutely wasn't using the Membership. THEY ALSO DELIVER!

Also...on a side note...to get the Thermos, I filled out a Credit Card! Which I know I may not be Approved for. There goes a mark on my Credit Score EEK! Frown Kind of embarrassed.

My Membership was $53.30!

Wow its Amazing!

HOW quickly, Daily all the money comes out that I have spent over the weekend! Everyday at least $100 comes out...Like I said in an earlier Post, I did not keep track too well...so I hope I don't end up in the red.

Telephone CONVINENCE FEES!

October 16th, 2006 at 07:16 am

That is the most rediculous thing I have ever heard. THIS IS TWICE I had to pay it, would prefer to Pay my Bills Online but I cannot seem to do that when the Website is not functioning correctly.

Anyway, HOW Can you Charge someone for PAYING their BILL??? That is just so rediculous!


Two $3 Convinence fees for WANTING TO PAY MY BILL! Next month the website better be functioning so I can Pay my Bills Online LIKE I like to do!

EDIT TO ADD: It is an Automated System via Telephone to Pay by Phone.

Free Stuff!

Bills and Payday!

October 12th, 2006 at 07:50 am

I have enough to Pay all my Bills and EAT! I am happy. For some reason I think we are ahead one week but we aren't. My friend's Birthday is on the 18th so I can buy her present now too.

All my Bills are Due at Once : (

October 11th, 2006 at 08:25 am

My CC, Power, Gas, Comcast, Daycare and then I have to put aside Money for Rent.

I think since I am paying part of my CC, I could use that for Grocery and Gas since paying it will give me that Balance I need. It is a Secured CC. I could then Pay off the rest next week.

I don't like having all my Bills due at once. Frown

But I do have some Good News! A Company that had charged me after I Cancelled put the Money back into my Account today. Big Grin

Housewarming Party Costs

October 7th, 2006 at 10:12 am

$85 for Food
$50 for Alcohol
$40 for Extras
$25 Hair Updo
$61 for Outfit
----------------
TOTAL $261.00

People having a Good Time PRICELESS Big Grin

Preparing for Party. Cleaning like a mad woman. I have so much to do!

Having a Party is not cheap. And I am going all out. This is my first party and I have Invited over 20 People! YES! I cannot believe it.

I do not have time to prepare food. I bought a Chocolate Fondue Fountain I am Excited about using! Big Grin I have to buy the Chocolate for it and Toothpicks.

I also have to buy food for the week and put money on my Prepaid and so many other Costs. I arleady set aside money for Rent for November. Which is the first thing I cover and then I pay any additional bills I may have then the rest of the money is leftover for FUN! I have been slacking on my Challenge and I owe myself some money still. I just need to get these things out of the way.

I still need to buy myself a New Vacuum. But I can wait. I am going to borrow my mother's this weekend.

My Brother was going to help me but then we got into a tiff. So not anymore!

I TRIED to sign up for OT at work and they said they do not need me during the hours I requested. But that is ok, I will make extra money other ways. I just thought I would take advantage of the OT since they keep me there so many hours anyway.

I have some sweet people that want to bring me Gifts. Although I made sure I had EVERYTHING when I moved in. People are so sweet. Smile

I had an idea

October 5th, 2006 at 10:52 pm

Buy a Prepaid Credit Card to track my Spending for just 'whatever' stuff and set myself a Limit. I think it would work, put a specific amount on it a week (Because I get Paid Weekly) and then use it that way...

You know there are weekends when you really do not feel like Shopping...? Its weird, last weekend I had a shopaholic moment and then the weekend before I had no urge to buy stuff period. WEIRD.
