*Sigh* My credit card is over limit. I completely forgot about some purchases (despite logging everything in my Google spreadsheet...) and now it's over. But I think they know that I give them a payment every two weeks (on payday) so they let some pre-authorized payments go through instead of being rejected. Which is worse for my credit, I wonder? Rejection or over limit?
I think I would have been helpful in those situations. At the grocery store, a lady didn't have quite enough to cover her groceries. I and the lady behind me helped cover the rest. It felt nice. And, honestly, I hope that if this happened tome in the future other grocery store ladies would help me out.
Yes yes a million times yes. My paretns came from Eastern Europe and my mother stretches a dollar thinner than a black hole would. They bought cars, did renos, took vacations... all in cash. If they didn't have the money, it didn't happen. I wish I was as good with money as she is!
This weekend is, uh, my Weekend Of Me. I'm going to get my hair cut and coloured tomorrow at a school/training salon so it should cost me less than $100 (which is a steal, frankly). Then I'm going to the healing waters spa in my city to do the water circuit, get a body sctub, facial-like thing, etc. That's going to cost me $240. Monday is a rare day off for me (hence Weekend of Me) so I will stay inside and play video games. Free! But still, it will be an expensive weekend. Especially if I go see my friend and we go get Thai food. $10? $15?
Can you only order it through Apple? Why not through [Insert American telecom company here]? I ordered mine through my service provider [Canadian telecom company]. I was put on a reserve list, waiting for the next shipment. They told me what number I was in the line. I got it in less than two weeks. Buddy from the telecom company set it up, I started using it 20 minutes later. I love, love, love my new iPhone. I tried to be upset over the amount of money I plonked down for it but then I just accepted that I love my smart phone and all I do with it.
Right, so now I'm crying. This is lovely!
SO be prepared to want to yell at me: My credit card debt (my only debt) is less than $2000. In theory, I could pay it off in about 2 months IF I stop putting things on it. I pay off a good chunk of it every payday, but I really like buying things! I'm the worst, I know.
This is relevant to my interests! We just cancelled the cable in our house because our maman does not want to pay exorbitant fees for it anymore. My sister and I watch watch most of our tv online. Actual TV watching is mostly the mindless "two hours just passed and all I have to show for it is House Hunters/Diners, Drive Ins and Dives knowledge. Which is USELESS. We don't even LIVE in the USA". Although we are in Canada, so we're going to have to figure out a way to get Netflix (the good one, not the crappy Canadian version) and Hulu and then we are set for life.
