Thursday, Answer to a question

     How do you know Kim has been here?  Is there a mess that needs to be cleaned up?  If the answer is yes I have been there.  Sorry to say, I am like pig pen and the dust follows me.  Case in point:

Kim was definitely here last night.  Wedding dress, pins, lace, lining, all evidence.



Kim's pin cushion, this is an old second hand sofa and I would have more respect for a new nicer sofa.
















Will I ever do anything with this pile?  Well maybe?
Maybe if I can get the wedding dress done?  The slip done? The veil done?  Oh and don't forget that bridesmaid dress I found hidden behind the curtain in the dressing room.  And the three pairs of pants that need fixed.  Then maybe then I can attack the pile.


In the mean time I need to address a question that a reader posed to me about why I was using charge cards at Christmas?  I use cards to save money on extra promotion, if you use the card you get more money off.  As long as I pay them off before the due date I am fine and I am doing just that.  I will go and pay the Macy's card off today.  That will just leave the visa card to pay at the end of the month.  So far I have been very diligent about this if it gets to be a problem I will get rid of the cards.  I will never go back to my old ways it is just too scary and I love the piece of mind I have in being able to pay my bills and not worry all the time.


     I ran to Winco last night to get some celery as I had used it all yesterday and some bean sprouts for dinner it came to $3.00  Yikes!  Two items.  We might have to start eating each other.



Well I have a work to do so I had better get busy. If I want to pay off my house and my lifestyle I have to work, I have to find ways to save and cut corners where I can. Blah!

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

Kim

    I use charge card for everything as we get points that gives us FREE money. card is paid in full every month. Someone wants to give me free money - who am I to argue!

    1. It is a great incentive unless you don't pay it off which I was guilty of for years.

    1. Thanks, I am determined to have no leftover bills. The house the car and the visa.

  4. To visit our kids we either have to fly or invest about 40 hours (son1) or 15 hours (son3) driving time, which is not going to happen. So we charge everything we buy just for the air points. Pay it off with no interest and wind up with free flights is a deal I am not going to pass on!
