Wasteful, wasteful, wasteful!!

May 28th, 2007 at 01:56 pm

Yup, that's me!! I just cleaned out the cabinet underneath my bathroom sink and tossed all the partially used bottles of hair products I had. What a waste of good money. Of course when I bought it I thought it was the best thing since sliced bread, only to be disappointed in the results on my hair.

So, while it was wasteful, I did free up a lot of space and now know what works for me!

Hair products are as 'evil' as kitchen gadgets! LOL!!

A little motivation...

May 27th, 2007 at 05:20 pm

After reading a post here earlier today, I got motivated and started listing some books on half.com. So far I have 84 books listed. I would love to find 84 messages in my inbox saying someone wants to give each one a new home!Smile

Upped my automatic deposit!

I went in tonight and increased my automatic deposit to ING! Now I'll be putting $50 a month in there. We are projected to receive an 8% COLA raise this year, starting in July. If that materializes I'll increase my deposit again. I'd like to be able to put the entire 8% in there.

Loose change

Just dumped the change from my billfold and added $1.63 to my challenge bank.

+ 1.63

Almost to the 3 digit mark...

Back from vacation...

May 20th, 2007 at 05:16 pm

...with money left over! Smile

I started with $950 in my vacation fund. Lost $200 + $20 in bank charges when two of the checks I deposited bounced! Frown That will be dealt with! I still have $354 left in the account and that's where it will stay as I am anticipating taking my much desired cruise next May. This will make a nice starting point for a fund for that trip. Smile

Since I've returned home I've had 5 no spend days, which feels great! Also, since I wasn't at home and didn't touch my other account (where my paycheck is deposited) I was able to pay off my first credit card!!!

The only cards with balances (which are relatively small) are clothing cards as there is not much shopping available where I live so I do online ordering. I have 3 more to go but they should be paid off in the next few months.

The picture is me as an obvious tourist in NYC!! LOL I'm holding Morris, the stuffed moose, that traveled with me and was the subject in many a photograph. Oh, by the way...Wicked was awesome!!!!
