Car insurance Adjustments

March 3rd, 2009 at 09:14 am

I changed my car insurance. I still had full coverage even though my car was paid off. I adjusted it to liability and comp only...a savings of $60/month. I have already set up a transfer for that $60 to go into the new car fund. Can't wait to see that start growing!

Half.com and other updates

March 3rd, 2009 at 06:43 am

Another half.com sale! Yea! This month has started off great! Still waiting on my money from the end of last month. It says it is pending....anyone know what I should expect? This is the first payment from them.

I don't think that I have anything listed on ebay, so I must get that done in the next couple of days. The ebay table is overflowing! There was a minor avalanche yesterday when the cat jumped from the top of the old refrigerator(that the person didn't come pick up UGGG!) to the ebay table....all is well though.

Picked up my laundry from my mom yesterday...all washed and folded. I know she doesn't mind, but I really want my washer back! Something about being 36 years old and having my mom wash my undies bothers me! We ordered a part last night and hopefully DH can fix it since we are not having any luck finding a used one and I hate to spend the money on a new one! I think that it is really shocking my mom that I haven't asked her for the money to buy one yet...That is the old me.

Might have to drive 2 hours for a soccer game tonight...will know later. I am hoping not. Had to drive an hour last night at the last minute! i couldn't feel my feet by the time it was over! I was the one with the ugliest knit blanket thrown over my head!(fortunatly I found it in the car!)

Vaation Panic Mode

March 2nd, 2009 at 08:11 am

Well...I booked our vacation. First one ever(except for the one my sister paid for) and then I realized that I only have a little over a month to save for it! YIKES!! I know I can do it, but I am already stretching this month. So every bit of extra will have to go into the vacation fund instead of anything else! I can do this...

February Ebay Totals

March 2nd, 2009 at 06:35 am

I sold a total of $111 on ebay and half.com for February. It was $103. after all fees were deducted. YEA!! I made the challenge.

I have made my first two sales of March already! I sold a movie on half.com and a basket on ebay. So I am off to a good start!

Paid another $23.54 toward credit card debt

March 1st, 2009 at 09:20 am

I had estimated my payment for sears to be $40. The minimum was only $16.46 so I paid the difference to the applied credit card, trying to get it below the limit. Won't be long!

Washer quit working!!

March 1st, 2009 at 07:49 am

But I am not panicked. I have checked craigslist and have found several for under $100. Might have to drive a little ways...but can't beat it. Will also look around to see if a new one might be reasonable. The best part? I HAVE THE MONEY TO TAKE CARE OF IT!!! I am so excited! No need to panic. A few months ago, I would have called my mom all in a panic because I didn't know what I would do! But not this time! YEA!!!!

I also booked a small vacation last night...well the hotel anyway. We have never taken a vacation as a family other than Disney that my sister paid for. So I booked a hotel for Jekyll Island for 4 days. Not very long, but doable. I can't wait! Already have some money saved toward the vacation, will continue to stash money into that account.

So my Sunday will be spent looking for a new washer...but that is okay.
