well we're off the wagon...and i don't feel like climbing back on
i know it could be a lot harder and we spend extra where "gazelles" wouldn't but darn it i don't wanna! (can you see me stamping my feet?)
we are wanting to get a Free to air satellite box which is $400 and then $200 to cancel our satellite. we do have the cash and saving the $50/mo from the sat. will "repay" us in 12 months....we still have 18ish months on contract plus after 1 year we will be "clearing" that extra. So theres $600 out of our savings. Plus we need to finish the back yard ($300, rock several trees $??).
I just bought $120 worth of shoes this weekend...which is EXTRAVAGENT for me..really. although there is 5 pair of name brand shoes for the family and my sis's bday present (which is in JANUARY.
) and i also need to buy 2 external hard drives which will be about $160 when i find the right deals. Plus i need to decide whether to replace my broken lcd screen on my puter now ($200 if i do the wor), never fix it (which means its a weird looking desk top but works fine), or buy a new puter when the BEST deal comes along whenever (which i would say would be less than $900...my lappy is decent for me though..no probs).
I also would like to buy some new clothes for the kids ($100 or less for both), xmas presents (hopefully $100 or less for the kids) and i would like to have a tv for our bedroom but dh gave our 27" "old" tv to the shop to "borrow" which means we'll never get it back
: and never get paid for it
: p's me off.
i have been getting several 'refi your VA loan' offers in the mail. i wonder if its worth it. mostly 2 months of no mortg. payment would save us $2k which really doesn't do much of anything right now. i don't think we'll be in this house for more than 2 more years though...i hope just one or so. we owe just over $153k. i just don't know about that.....
not to mention dh charged $400 last month on "his" cc.
it now has $1k+ on it and i have not wanted to deal with his stupid spending. BLah blah blah blah...yuck.
sorry i hope no one minds me shooting off my irks.
i hope everyone else is happy and good luck with what you guys need luck on!
