Re: Things that are currently annoying me

We just redid the floors in ceramic wood tile*

I know what you are talking about and I would LOVE the look of wood with the ease of tile. Seriously thinking about this myself. The photos I have seen* look beautiful.

Re: Things that are currently annoying me

My chatty new cube-mate. I've had a corner to myself for almost a year, but they finally brought in my former co-workers replacement. He's nice, but he's a talker. A talker to the point of reading all of his emails aloud, and then talking [more]

Re: Prestigious Visa "Black" card

Since Capital One lets you pick your own design, why not just design an all black card with the words "BLACK" and maybe "PRESTIGIOUS" (or possibly PRETENTIOUS) on it?

Prestigious Visa "Black" card

Got an 'invitation' in the mail today to apply for the "Prestigious" Visa Black Card.

It is "Luxury without limits" (not counting the credit limit of course)

It is "The ULTIMATE BUYING TOOL" [more]

Re: Plan update (Progress!!)

What are your plans afterwards (in case I missed that in a previous post)?

I'm going to start paying a bit more every moth to my mortgage, and increase my 401k contributions (currently 6%) but everything else will go into an e-fund. [more]

Million Bells

More like dozen bells.

I bought several deep purple million bell plants and put them in the flowerbed with yellow dahlias, orange marigolds, red/purple Bat Faced cuphea and blue lobelia.

I water them all regularly, lightly feed [more]

Re: "Group" gifts (a rant)

No, but there is some implication here (from other posters as well) that it is wrong or rude of someone not to go off the gift registry. I just disagree, and I hope people who receive gifts are grateful for them, not thinking 'you should have [more]

Re: "Group" gifts (a rant)

I think in social situations, sometimes women should take a lesson on how men on average respond.

I agree. If it had been a man who asked me to chip in on a cute gift he wanted to get for the mom to be, I probably would have just said [more]

"Group" gifts (a rant)

I am not a fan of "group" gifts. If it's something like a plaque or a shadow-box for a retirement, or a crib for a baby I have no problem. Those are pricey and are usually given as a group.
However, my pet peeve is when someone else [more]

Unexpected rewards

So, I still have debt. I am steadily working my way toward my goal of no loan or credit card debt, and then I'll start hammering away at the car loan.

While throwing big chunks of my income toward debt and still putting away a modest amount [more]

Plan update April 2014

Sorry if my updates are tedious. Writing it all down keeps me on track and putting it out publicly keeps me from slacking.

So, I don't like the Chase/Disney card.
It's good for collecting Disney points, but I can't track my spending [more]

Plan Update (Feb 2014)

AJ485, I took your advice to heart and I decided to knock down a chunk of the principle of the signature loan right up front, which will make the interest lower in the long run.

I spent the last month shopping the grocery sales, packed [more]

Re: The Plan

Ah, sheesh. I spent half an hour typing a response, but it's just too wordy and too personal. Anyway. The shorter version.

I just don't think it's smart for people to be helping other people, when they don't have their own house in order. [more]

The Plan

I got back into debt when I got divorced about 3 years ago. I have a house that I bought about a year after the divorce (he kept the house and everything in it). I bought when the prices were super low and so was the financing. The payments are [more]
