  1. Success Stories
    We are told we will get just over $1000.00 back on our income tax return & $1000.00 is going into our savings account. We will then have $2000.00!! I have a friend who spent hers on bills and then used the rest for blow money and that friend seems confused as to why I am willing to just pretend...

    After I filed my return on 1/24 and was able to see my deposit date on the IRS website it said it would go in my bank on 2/8. Then a couple days later it revised to 2/7. I just checked it today as I was checking the status of my son's return and it has now updated my return to deposit on 2/1...

    I have an email buddy in Greece, who lives on the island of Crete. He told me yesterday that with the near-demise of the Greek currency he and his neighbours had been returning to the barter system. He is an olive farmer, so in return for help with his harvest, he pays his neighbour in olives...

    Being responsible blows sometimes. Got my tax return this weekend.We anticipated 5,000 but due to my husbands whooping 3% raise it pushed us to the next tax bracket:thud:. We ended up with 3,000. I know not bad but we were going to put 3,000 away for moving expenses this summer and spend the...

    I know I should adjust withholdings so that we don't have a big refund. But I use this to save a little money. If DH sees it he spends it. He spends it sometimes without looking to see if we can make the payments. Yes, I said payments. Okay vent over. The plan is to take the refund and put...

    ...and she is not happy. As I wrote in the family part of the forum, we are having a brunch today for my parents in law. I was always the 'cruise director' for the family and a few years ago for various reasons I stopped doing it. One of the reasons was that everyone always just assumed that I...

    Well hi again, all, I hope someone remembers me. When I first found frugalvillage and began worshiping at the alter of Dave Ramsey last year, I would refer to this board as my rehab. We were doing well with our debt paying and living lean. Of course like most addicts I took a nice fall off...
  8. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    And its big! (well, bigger than I expected!). So now I'm debating what to do. I don't know if my will power is strong enough. Its exactly half of whats left of student loan#1.

    If you have received your tax return, when did you file? I'm waiting patiently for ours, we just filed on February 3 and ours "should' be deposited on February 13. (we'll see if that's true) Did you request a paper check or direct deposit?

    I bought pudding (the refrigerated kind) from Aldi a few weeks ago and when I was eating it I thought it tasted a little funny. I looked at the wrapper/top and there was mold on it. Makes me gag just thinking about it.. I checked the date and it was nowhere near the expiration date so there...
  13. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I just found out that our tax return is in the bank (still pending though). As soon as it is done pending I am paying off CC#1 and half of CC# 2. CC#3 will take a while to pay off but I can do much better snowballing now! I can't wait to have this debt wiped out. Now when we get this extra tax...
  14. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I started my taxes last night. So far, I owe money. I think I have included all my deductions. We are even still waiting on 1 W2 so even more income will be added, but not a ton. I just don't understand how this is possible. I need some more deductions.

    I think that this is so cool. I never was able to eat at an automat but I always thought they were the neatest places when I saw them in old movies or television programs. If I ever make it to New York City, I am going to have to give the new Automat a try...

    I hope so-- I'm going to try later today. Yesterday I went to a grocery store that I rarely go to. I picked up a package of shredded cheddar cheese, among other things. When I opened the cheese last night, it had green mold in it! :yucky: The expiration date is more than a month away, so I...

    on your time investment! I've been helping dsis#3 get her house back in order after surgery. She's been out of commission 3 months. We've been doing some serious cleaning...a bit at a time. So far she's passed off some old cotton shirts to me (for quilting). I figure I'll make a string...

    Yes, I always make sure I do. This year, they were advising people who did Christmas shopping to make sure they checked the store's return policy before buying an item. Good advise.
