So, I’m obsessed with Coach

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?

I saved some money today


I bought some jeans at The Gap yesterday, they were $58. I tried them on today, and they didn’t fit. So instead of exchanging them, I returned them, saving $58.

My auctions did really well also. The Coach purse I had listed, sold for $50, the silverware sold for $130 (it’s crazy, especially when I didn’t pay NEARLY that much for it), and the satellite radio sold for $16. Not bad for the miscellaneous crap I had laying around here.

On the other hand, I bought that Coach briefcase I wanted. The good news is, I didn’t pay $350 for it, I paid $86. So, I still saved some money. Once I get the money order for the silverware, I will use it to pay off my Orchard card completely. It will feel so good to get rid of that debt.

Now that I’m addicted to ebay, I’m going to try to find some other miscellaneous crap to auction off. I’m sure I don’t really NEED the 50 stuffed Eeyore toys I have, but they are my collectibles. I like them a lot. I really don’t want to get rid of them. Maybe I’ll find something else to auction…..
