Another One Bites the Dust!!

January 30th, 2015 at 08:03 am

Credit Card, that is. I paid of the Kohl's card today. I also got my tax refund today. I had already planned on paying the credit card off so that doesn't come out of the refund.

The refund is going to pay for:

Having the duct work cleaned in the house
Replacing the vanity in the downstairs bathroom(it is all warped and mold infested)
Catching up car payment(not even a month behind, but past due date)
Pay Additional amount to Best Buy card(over half of the balance)
Pay for DD Senior Pictures
Give MOM $200

That is about all of it. I didn't get near as much as I am used to getting back, but I will take it.

Have you ordered Glasses Online?

Has anyone ordered prescription eye glasses online? What site did you use? Were you happy with them? Any feedback would be great. DD needs new glasses.

This and That

January 6th, 2015 at 10:36 am

I will have another credit card paid off tomorrow. That will make 3 since I started the second job around November 1. And I paid off the charges I made for Christmas so basically I paid cash for Christmas. Another will be paid off at the end of this month. I am proud of the progress I have made so far and intend on keeping it up. I just hope I can keep this second job long enough before my body revolts.

Child support hasn't shown up yet. He was paid on the 28th and I figure with the holiday it will be slow. But I just had to pay the deposit to the college my DD has chosen and paid her car insurance so I really need that support payment. (she pays a certain amount toward her insurance and car payment).

We ordered DD's senior pictures today. We finally got an email for 40% off. And her dad is paying $75 toward them.

I guess that is about all for now. I hope everyone had a Happy New Year!

Preliminary Tax Refund

January 2nd, 2015 at 03:05 pm

I put all my information from my last paystubs into FreeTaxUSA to get an idea of my tax situation since I really didn't know what to expect this year. DD turned 17 so I lost the child tax credit. I started the second job. And I didn't have any rental property. But according to what I entered I will get about $900 back from federal and about $50 back from state. I will take it. Once I find out for sure what I am getting back I will post my plan for it. One thing for sure is DD's senior pictures. They keep upping the discount amount so I will wait a while until the discount is close to 40%. Then the rest will be applied to credit card payments.

I guess I need to go in and adjust the amount of withholding for this year. The second job is withholding hardly anything even though I am claiming single 2. I think I will have them withhold an additional $15 per check. That should cover it I think. I have an additional $10 withheld from my first job. I just don't want any surprises next year.
