    rates and they sure did!!!! My bill jumped from $151 to $198.:bang: I've been unplugging more, not running dryer, etc.... I don't think we will ever get ahead!
  2. Just Tips
    In May, we had a Centennial walkathon to raise money for our children's room expansion at my work. Since the walk was through the historic district and went right by my house, I volunteered to be the water stop on the route. I dug out the five gallon orange water cooler I have (think the...
  3. Financial hardship
    Last October I posted I was another statistic and was getting laid off. As of Friday, I am done. I have alot of mixed feelings about it all. It paid quite well, had exellent benefits.....and was sucking the life out of me due to stress!! :cheer4: Good news is I found a new job in the office...

    Things have gotten out of hand, so we are reading through TMM right now. Tomorrow night we are having a 'meeting' to discuss all the stuff we've been putting off because it's just too painful to do. But we've pretty much hit rock bottom and we need to pull ourselves up. I am sitting up writing...

    Remember a few weeks back I mentioned that the parent co. that owned Ryan's filed chapter 11, well Joe's store was one of about 50 that got shut down so far. He went to work Monday as usual, the district manager showed up and the truck/food order didn't....lol The managers were told Monday...

    Our new fridge and stove will arrive on Friday! Our stove is not consistently cooking. We looked at replacing the teh elements and the thermostat but it is old, and just not worth it anymore. We wouldn't be able to sell if for the price of the new parts. The fridge isn't keeping things anymore...

    and it was so funny. I went to a Target in New Bern, NC. They had lots of Star-Kist on the shelves. So I knew right away that no one around there had heard of this deal. I had only printed 5 coupons a couple of weeks ago. That's plenty for me. So I went for it. Boy, was that cashier...
  8. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    So, I spent all day Teusday at MEPS (Military Entry Processing Station) and I passed my physical! Now, all I have to do is pass an Orthopedic Consultation at MEPS and I'm IN! Makes me fell all *hooah* n stuff LOL. So, I'm considering the following: These 5 jobs would allow me a day job...
  9. Education
    We pulled my oldest out of school 2 years ago due to bullying and his behavior because of it. We just started our 3rd year homeschooling. We have had tons of problems throughout with his yelling at me and arguing with me. Mainly it happens during math time. Off and on I have wondered if...
  10. Debt Reduction & Money Management
    I went through all my bills and figured things out. The worst part, and the main reason I came here, is that we've basically been using our "savings" account to pad our income. We are overspending past what we're bringing in by about 15-20%. The main reason we're overspending is that our...

    I usually do my weekly grocery shopping on Thursday. Works best for me. Well, last Thursday I was going to be busy, so I jumped my shopping ahead to Wednesday. Went to the store that's closest to me, and I use quite a bit, ----I'm checking out (and using all my sales and coupons, etc...

    I did sleep in this morning, at least until 9, because I was just so tired, but I'm up and ready to go now on my four day sprint to get things done. Going to pick up my paycheck, then pay off that insurance today! YAY! One more bill down! I'll have to sit down tonight and figure out exactly...

    I have no idea for how much. When our real estate agent called dh my dh was busy at work and told him to call me. He hasn`t called me so I have no idea what the offer is. Our real estate agent doesn`t speak English very well and my french is very limited so that is that, I will have to wait...

    I guess I will be, with gas prices going over $3 an hour, that puts my food budget at $20 a week. Looks like BOGO cereal is going to be the staple of my cupboard. Well, maybe it will motivate me to get off my butt and start that summer garden, and dig out those canning jars! LOL

    What a good episode! I was on the edge of my seat (as usual with this show). How did Michael know that that was a fake Cooper Green? I do like the real Cooper Green. Do you think the warden has the original copy of the tape? I'm still on the fence about whether Killerman was friend or...

    I'm so grateful to you wonderful ladies here for your support and advice. I've really learned a lot and I'm afraid I haven't offered much. I've been very self-absorbed lately and honestly, I haven't had a lot to contribute. I'm in the worst financial situation I've ever been in and I have a...
  19. Stay at home moms
    I know that I mentioned this in my thread announcing the birth of my son, but here's the news with all the gory details..:yikes: The company that I work for is closing the plant I work in. The facility here in Worcester, MA is being consolidated with another facility in Williamsburg PA. I'm...

    We made the move to Ohio and got here August 12th. So far we love it! We are living at my sister's house (she is not here though) temporarily. We finally sold our house in CO and we close on Thursday. We found a great house here at the total max of what we felt we could afford. So of course...
