I know I haven't posted in a while. I just have been busy. After going back and forth decided to stay with my parents the rest of the year of 2010.
The family dog died on Thursday, June 10th 2010 I didn't find out till I came home after work on Thursday. She was 13 years old. I had grew up with her and she was a good dog. I love and miss her very much.
I am trying to get another Customer Service job with another transportation company. It sounds like the perfect match, I hope they think so too.
I moved back home to my parents last July 2009 because of a bad breakup...I was originally supposed to move in March but decided to move in July 2010...am I just accustomed to have extra money (I still pay rent every week) or just afraid to be out on my own again?
Hmmm I have changed the date from April, May June and now July...
I think an second at home job may help...I decided to stay at UPS CSC unless somethiing better comes along...I don't know...Hmmm...
Wasting food...even if your stuffed...but what I really don't like is if you go to a special event dinner & they throw out your food and don't have to go boxes...I asked them if I could save it and they said that they had nothing to put it in...it was a slice of roast, some sort of chicken, the spinach salad was awesome, but anyway just my vent...I have dogs & I like to eat leftovers..I just don't like wasting...I also wonder what they did with the rest of the food leftover from the event unless they let their employees take it from the catering company. But when they put all the food away I noticed they let this HUGE roast dry out...Hmmmm....
Every night before bed my daughter and I share a bag of chicken ramen...I love it...we eat it with Saltine crackers and Tapatio hot sauce (yes she eats hot sauce too and she is 6)...plus it helps me sleep well
Although I have been with the company for 3.5 years and I am in a good position and make good money...the stress this year with them has doubled. #1 My ex works there but in a different dept. #2 They have threatened to close our Corporate office and they have not renewed the lease for our building. #3 I am on a write-up for not passing over 75% of my calls in a month...we all have bad months but I need stability...they have also let go some people who have been there years and people have quit.
So I signed up for HotJobs.com Monster.com CareerBuilder.com . Refreshed my resume and applied for many jobs today and one yesterday.
I am keeping my job till I can find another one...I have 30+ days depending on how much months go and if I am over 75% every month on passing calls...
$100 is for a Health Assessment for my Health Insurance UHC
$100 Rebate for Renewing my 2 year Contract with AT&T...I at first was going to go online to get a new phone but I ended up going to the AT&T store at the suggestion of my mom and ended up saving 20% a month on my service and getting my rebate, plus they matched the price on the website
I am going to save the GC for Emergencies.
Today I also bought a dining set & living room set for $50 at an Estate sale for my new apt!
McDonalds any size soda $1
Subway Footlong any $5
Walmart Vision Complete Pair of Glasses $38
I LOVE Subway!!! I really need glasses and to get a new eye exam (not included) so this deal came perfect timing.
$5385 is what I am getting
$646 - State Tax
$185 - Visa
$597 - MC
$300 - Parents
$2000 - Car
Which will go towards getting my Apartment. I will make sure I have some leftover for Savings.
I have two keys missing from my Dell laptop, and H key and a symbol key..so I give my mom my laptop to take to a PC shop that is in her Chamber member(she works for Chamber of Commerce) and they have the nerve to want to charge me $50! I said HECK NO...I can get either the keys online or a new keyboard for less than $10!! I almost different but I was thinking does this guy think I am stupid? So I am going to fix it myself.
Instead of wasting my Gift Cards on junk I bought the items I would need on my Target and Walmart Gift Cards...$35 for the Pink Vacuum and I had been eying it for weeks! My favorite purchase was almost sold out! Bought it at Walmart.
Target I bought the dinnerware set 30% off $20, silverware $8.99 and cookware $18.99 all from a $50 Gift Card. Owed only $2.31.
I am loyal to ATT cell phone service. My parents want to add me to their family plan and only pay $10 a month for doing so but I love my ATT! I don't mind paying the extra $90 a month plus I get to have my independence from my parents...my contract is up with ATT and I can upgrade and do a new 2 year with a new phone or a rebated payment back to myself. My cell now has water damage but still works, I paid about $50 extra to get it working properly again...its a Blackberry Pearl 8810...I want a new phone but my pets shots are more important! So I am just going to wing it I guess till I decide what to do...
This year I decided to get everyone big gifts this year since I can since I am living at home. I have been buying one gift a week since I get paid every week.
Daughter - DS Lite $129 *Bought
Parents - Guitar Hero Beatles (splitting cost with siblings) $67.00-$100 *Buying Dec 12th
Brother - Laptop (buying from parents) $200 *buying Dec 19th
Sister - Sony Cybershot $119 *Buying Saturday Dec 5th
Daddy - Care Package $? (after Christmas)
I REALLY also want to get everyone Gift Cards since I LOVE Gift Cards (giving and receiving them) but I may not if I cannot afford to.
The ONLY thing I want for Christmas is my dog I got from my hairstylist friend...my parents let me take my cat and she sleeps in the basement with us but my ex took our dog even though the dog claimed me and the cat claimed my ex. I also had another bad situation where when I was first married and lived in Mexico I had to leave my dog there also...so its VERY sentimental I get this dog ...My parents already have two dogs and three cats of their own...but they let me bring my cat and I take care of her here in my basement...my mom also loves that I love taking care of their dogs...the reason why is my dad thinks they already have too many animals here LOL..which is understandable LOL but it would be in the basement with me till I move out like my cat. So please HOPE I get the dog for Christmas!
Work was slow so I left to go home early because they didn't need me and they gave me the option...well for a couple of weeks I worked only 20 hours and now I am so far behind in my bills and I owe so many people money I don't know what to do! I screwed up so bad. I don't want to ask anyone for the money because my mom will hold it over my head...I keep getting overdraft fees but luckily I am with a Credit Union and only get overdraft fees when something cannot be paid. Its almost Friday and I get paid weekly but because the overdraft my check will be less. I have started to work 40 hours again. Tell me what to do! I have Canceled things that I really do not need. I am worried about my Credit Cards. I tried to make a payment one week and got a return charge because there was no money to pay it. PLEASE HELP ME!! I am so desperate. I know this is a bad way to come back since I haven't posted since July 2008. But I need help!!!
I have to take some money out of my Savings to purchase a new Laptop. My Toshiba is working really bad! I already had to change the cord on it. The pin is possibly broken now and now I am getting a new Laptop and do not want to have to make payments. I just barely got my Savings at over $1,000. Plus I had to use my Las Vegas money for birthdays. UGH, I do have a Plan though.
Last year Office Depot online had $5 TV's and I am trying to see when they will have them again, if anyone else has them, let me know! I already emailed Office Depot and they were not very helpful.
What did I do with it? ($600)
$149 - well my birthday is this month (MAY) so I bought myself a Flip Video Ultra. Its also PINK (my favorite color) for myself for my birthday. (I Paid extra for the difference left)
I think I spread my Stimulus Check the right way...I put it is all places...Saved, Paid and Bought...
There was a problem though, my daughter's check was not deposited though? So I am thinking it might either come next Friday under her SSN# or I am going to have to call the IRS.
I am sorry, but I have been trying to avoid these like the plague until I can find a financial solution to pay all of them at once. Well, I feel overwhelmed with all these statements and decided to pay all of the ones I can right now (under $100) and then work on the bigger ones.
I should be getting my last two disability checks soon. Rent is due tomorrow. We are getting a reimbursement check back from My Insurance Company from the asteigeologist (sp??) for $150, and I am also putting in $700 (from those two checks from being out on Disability) to cover Rent.
Then I can get back to getting things good on my own account.
