I don’t know how to break my obsession. I’m just a sucker for an overpriced, well made bag. I’d like to buy all of them that I see at Marshalls and TJ Maxx, then resell them on ebay. Trouble is, I just can’t afford it right now. I don’t want to put it on credit, not knowing if I’d get my money back in return. BUT it would be a way for me to kind of, live in my obsession. Maybe that can be one of my goals for 2008. Link to post from 3/4/07.
I sent off a letter to First Premier Bank today. Of course I sent it CMRRR, just so they can’t say they didn’t get it. I have this trade line on my report that is reporting wrong, and they have verified it with the credit bureaus once already. I just wish it wasn’t so tough to keep my reports accurate. It’s annoying actually.
Anyways, I balanced my checkbook today. Not looking good until next Friday. I really need to cut back on things. I’ll try to keep track of the things I don’t buy this week.
Having annual fees on credit cards annoys me too. It’s like, what the hell am I getting for that $59 annual fee? Something else to pay off at 17.4%APR. Damn. I really gotta pay that off. I sent in another $75 payment this week. I’ll have to update it when I pay it off. If my calculations are right, I still owe $118.68. on it at this point. I’d love to just take the money that I have in my Electric Orange account and pay that off. I could do it and still save, because my 401K is valued at about $400 so far. I still might do that. I’ll think about it.
What would you do?
