New Phone

Hey Everyone. Well here's the story for today! I got a new phone and it's with the company I always wanted! I went with Consumer Cellular. The service is cheap I get two touch phones that I had to pay $200 for.  But the service is cheap because with all the bells and whistles on both phones it will only cost me $50 bucks a month for service. Compared to the $70 I was paying for just my plain phones with no bells and whistles.. Plus I get to try the service free for 45 days and if I don't like it  I can cancel the service and it cost me nothing. Plus I am a AARP member and I get a 10% discount off the service. I am loving it. and  I  am saving $20 bucks on my monthly bill.

Yesterday was a money day for me. I sold something that was over $100. I got great news about the property I told you about and the lawsuit. It's almost settled and we should be getting a nice piece of money for that property soon. Plus I got new phones at a discount. I was loving yesterday. Now let's hope it's a another money day today!
                                                   That's my story so what do you think?

I Am Being Sued!!

Good Morning Everyone, Well here's the story for today. Yesterday I got a banging on my door it was about 9:am. I was still asleep and I was pissed that someone would bang on my door at that hour on a Saturday morning. Anyway I called out the window to see who it was ( yea I know that was real classy of me calling out the window). The guy identified himself and stated he had a delivery for me. I told my partner  about the guy at the door. He went to the door and ask the guy what he wanted. The he handed him a legal paper stating that my partner was being sued for now get this.... Property that he owns and a religious church wants it! This is crazy right.

The lawsuit basically is that my partner owns 50% of a piece of land in another state a religious school owns the other 50% . So the school is trying to take my partner to court so that they could buy his half for cheap.. The school figures that if they take my partner to court that he would buckle and just give them the land for next to nothing. NOT!!! the case. We had a lawyer working on this problem for the last 10 months. So right now we're letting the lawyer handle it.. Will keep you updated. It's scary getting papers about someone suing over a bunch of  BULL S***!!

Debit Card

                                      Good Sunday Everyone Well Here's My Story For Today

Happy Sunday Family. Yesterday I went and got myself a liquid debit card from chase. Why do you ask since I am a cheapskate . Because my ATM card which I don't use can not be used to make purchases like a debit card can. Plus with this card it makes it easy for me to put say $50 bucks on it and that's all I can spend for stuff like food, gas, fun stuff.  Did I mention that Chase charges a $4.75 fee to have the card but my fee  was wavered because I am special to Chase.This card is great because it keeps me on a budget when it comes to my play money. I hate spending money but if I have to at least I know my spending  limits....

Been doing a lot of mystery shops lately ( Thank God). So for the month of September I  made about $80 bucks and that 's pretty good for me. Now I just have to wait until they send me the checks in October. That's the only thing I hate about mystery shopping the waiting on payments.

This pass week has been errands and trying to get ready for my cruise in December. But nothing special to tell you about. But trust me I have some news  to tell you later on....

So what do you think?

So Expensive

Good Morning Everyone, Well here's the story for the week. Passports! Do you realize that you need updated passports before you go on any trip. I am talking about cruises and flying? I have a passport that will not expire until March 2017, Here I thought that I can cruse in December and by January I would send  my passport off for renewal. Not happening. The passport office and the cruise ship told me that my passport can not have less in then 6 months before it expires. I have  about 4 months on mine come December. So now you know what I have to do. I have to run around and get a new passport actually get it renewed before Dec. The cost of all this will be......$110. I tell you the government gets their money no matter what. Mind you I have to get new passport pictures cost $17, Send it express mail cost about $10.  All of this money being spent just for a book with my picture and a government stamp. Go figure!  And after I send all this information to the passport office it takes 4-6 weeks to get it back for $110 you would think I could get my passport back in a week! Well that's my story what do you think?

Good Morning Everyone, Well here's my story so far. I want to downsize soooooooo bad. Meaning that yesterday I looked at all the junk in my house and I  wanted to call junk buster right there on the stop to take it all away. I want to live in a bare bones apartment. I guess after you get older stuff means nothing to you like it did when you were younger. I am up in age the better side of 54 and I am tired. I long to live in a small apartment with the basics to live on. I was thinking about selling my stuff on the Internet and using that money to move. Vegas is my first choice  and Settle a close second.
I finally found a washing machine that I could live with price wise. I am purchasing it this week. It will cost me around $400 with everything and that's the cheapest I could find believe me I have looked. My problem is that the salesman stated that appliances don't last long anymore. My last machine lasted 20 years. I am lucky if the new one last 7-10 years. I hate that companies are making junk stuff  when it comes to appliances and they expect you to pay high prices for it.
                                 Well that's my story for now so what do you think?

 Hey Everyone,Well here's my story so far. I am so Stupid at times. Espically this week. I went to the supermarket yesterday I spent about $90. when the cashier asked me if I had any coupons. I told her yes but they were at home. She looked at me funny like then waited for me to put my charge card in the machine. I had coupons a few of them that I could have used for my food purchases espically the $10 off one the store gave me last week because of an error they had made.  Stupid right?

You would think that I would learn my lesson. I can not tell you how much money I spend playing lotteries and buying scratch off tickets to win either nothing or $1-3 dollars if lucky.  I am also  struggling  to try  and think of ways to save money to go on vacation.  I am stupid because if I stop playing lotto that is my vacation money!!

 These are just a few of the stupid things that I do when it comes to not paying attention to my money. But this is September and the month is still young so stay tuned! So what do you think?
