It’s the principal of the matter … Literally!

June 27, 2008

One of my all time greatest annoyances (i refuse to use the saying “pet peeves”), is getting gypped by cashiers. It’s one thing to have it done every once in a while, but it happens allllll the time for me! Maybe i’m just super unlucky, but i seriously have to question a receipt at LEAST once a week. Just the other day I was picking […]

USAA Now shares 2nd place in our wedding Bank Battle!

June 26, 2008

That’s right, miraculously we’re STILL getting wedding checks sent our way :) I guess that “1 year to give a gift” rule is pretty common these days. Not that i really care one way or the other, i just find it pretty funny. This rule doesn’t apply to birthdays, graduation,or Christmas so why weddings? I asked a couple friends but no luck, they all came […]

Wanna know what it feels like to have ZERO credit card debt?

June 23, 2008

It feels GREAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT! (in the voice of Tony the Tiger). I know this because the Mrs. and i JUST paid off all 3 outstanding credit card balances today. That means no more interest charges, no more budget fenagling, and especially no more annoying bills to pay ;) While it doesn’t feel all that *different* per se, my brain does feel a bit more organized and […]
