After 4 months, we STILL don’t have our wedding pictures.

September 30, 2008

Can you believe that? FOUR months and nothing, not even our proofs. I’ve been hoping to resolve this for a few weeks now, but sadly it looks like it’s finally gotten to me. What makes it worse is that we had finally gotten a hopeful response last week, but then THAT failed as well. Is it that hard to ask for something you’ve paid for […]

September 29, 2008

With all the gloom and doom surrounding our economy, i don’t blame ya. Luckily though, i’ve stumbled upon something that may just help cure you while we wait for the top dogs to clean it all up. And it doesn’t cost ya a penny! I’ve been doing it for a good month now, and it actually IS helping me put things in perspective. Everyone’s different […]

Suze Orman, Oprah, You, Me – we’re all in bed with the FDIC.

September 26, 2008

And that’s because the sexy FDIC covers a lot of our money :) I tried to avoid bringing it up since it’s been covered a good 3,000,300,40405,490u002945 times already in the media, but sadly i’m just plum out of ideas to blog about today. And the truth of the matter is, the FDIC does in fact play a major role these days. So today i […]

Save gas and drive the home stretch w/out hitting the pedal!

September 25, 2008

FiveCentNickel had an excellent post this morning on improving your gas mileage by slowing down. It’s one of those “theories” out there that people are always trying to prove themselves, and Nickel did it! To be honest, I really dont’ have the patience to track it myself, BUT his post DID remind me of my newest challenge. It’s kind of dumb really, but it’s one […]

Verizon Wireless will soon go without Early Termination Fees!

September 24, 2008

HOT DOGS! Just scooped this up from Consumerist: “Verizon has announced that they will begin offering monthly cellphone plans with no early termination fees. Consumers wishing to take advantage of the plans will be required to pay full price for a phone, or provide their own phone, as Verizon will not be subsidizing the cost of handsets.” If you already have a plan, like i […]

$111,645 is the magic # for the Obama vs McCain tax debate.

September 24, 2008

If you make less than $111,645 a year, Obama will put more money in your pocket if elected. If you make more (besides being a lucky s.o.b! haha…), then McCain is your man on this one. At least, that’s what Smart Money Mag is saying this month. What i like about this statement is that it is simple. It’s saying “here’s a # that you […]

I’ve been asked for money 3 times within 24 hours! wtf?

September 23, 2008

Do i have a sign on me saying, “i hate money”? I know i just wrote about how i’ll be donating $25 every month now, but it seems like people are coming out of the woodwork thinking i’m some sort of p.i.m.p. now. And to clarify, i’m not…yet ;) But for the second morning in a row now, i have literally been stopped in my […]
