Today’s the last day to grab those Charity tax write-offs!

December 31, 2008

Time to make some deposits at your local thrift store! So put on those energy pants and start rummaging through the house. The more you can donate, the more you can write off! Not sure what that means? Don’t worry, i didn’t either 2 years ago ;) It’s basically another way to legally hold on to your hard earned money. According to “tax write-off: […]

All this excitement = Me getting sick and not spending money :(

December 29, 2008

Yup, def. won’t be splurging around if i can’t leave the house. Not that it really makes a difference though considering i couldn’t even muster up enough courage to blow a little $ on my bday! I wonder if i’m cured of this so called “splurge” virus now? i hope not…i like giving in every now and then. Of course, it always helps when you […]

It’s my birthday, and i can shop if i want to :)

December 26, 2008

Awww yeahhh! Not only is it Boxing Day (although not really sure what that is?), but it’s also a day of mad discounts and sales all over town :) And what better time to shop than when your pocket is full of present money? Of course, having your birthday right after the man upstairs DOES have its drawbacks, but there are a lot of pros […]

Right when you think you couldn’t love them any more ;) Okay, so maybe this won’t cure all the haters out there, but it’s still sexy as hell!

All I want for Xmas is for you to write this little girl :(

December 23, 2008

This is the cutest/sadest thing i’ve read all month! My girl over at J.D. Maybe? linked to it and i couldn’t help pass it along in hopes anyone has a few mins to spare and write a quick note. J.D. summed it up perfectly: “One little girls wish is to receive mail. She has Cerebral Palsy. This is the cheapest easiest good deed one could […]

Another foreclosure on our street…Is it time to get positive?

December 23, 2008

That’s now 2 foreclosures in 2 months :( And, just like the other one, i can literally see the place right outside our living room window! Perhaps they both partied together??? Arghhh…. But you know what? I’m done ranting about it all, i’ve said my peace last time and it didn’t get us anywhere (although it did make for a good blog post!). Yup, this […]

Am I a Grandpa if I get my nephew a Savings Bond?

December 22, 2008

Cuz I gotta tell you, it sure feels like it ;) I don’t know about you all, but that’s alllll I got growing up from the g-parents! Birthdays, holidays, confirmations, you name it. A big, fat, weird paper looking thing that we weren’t able to cash. Of course, back then if it couldn’t be played with or eaten, I didn’t care what it was! haha..but […]

USAA just hollered – They’re raising my credit card rates!

December 18, 2008

Yup, even my beloved USAA is fighting the good fight these days. Got a nice little letter in the mail yesterday (which may, or may not, have been cleverly disguised as junk mail) stating there will now be a minimum annual interest rate set @ 6.00% starting in Feb, 2009 :( It’s certainly not the worst thing in the world, but that doesn’t mean i […]

New Year’s Resolutions – Did i actually accomplish something?

December 16, 2008

For the first time in 28 years i finally won! I can’t believe it….I’m pretty sure if my mother was reading this she’d say something about pigs flying or hell freezing over, but luckily she doesn’t so i may bask in my glory joke-free ;) Now, they weren’t the hardest or most fascinating goals in the world, but they were enough to get me believing […]
