I noticed...after too long... that I was being charged $41 a month for credit protection on a Citicard that I'm trying to pay off. And the minimum payment is almost $145 and the penalty is about $45 of that total minimum payment. So- on $4800 worth of incurred debt (including all of the penalties), I'm only paying about $60 towards the principal! I didn't ever ask for the credit protection- it's like insurance on your own debt. Ha!
I have petitioned to have all of the months I payed for the credit protection and all of the penalties incurred from it to be credited to my account. I bet that this issue won't be resolved for months!
What a mess...
It's been almost 4 months since I've been back to work- if just for part time. And it's safe to say that I like my job. I'm one of the few people that actually like their jobs. What a shame.
Well- It's turned out to be a great strike of luck. I'm getting paid more than I did working fulltime at the public high school down the street. I'm very happy with my bosses and co-workers. The people I see, virtually every day, are pretty swell too.
I'm still on a mission to find another job for more income. Not to say we're "hurting" anymore. But- I may try selling Avon in my spare time for some extra cash. According to my friend, she did it- with online store- and it seemed easy and less time consuming...
Happy Holidays to all....
I'm one payment away from cutting this card up into oblivion. And they had the nerve to turn it into a VISAtarget card! It's like the financial gods are throwing us more and more temptation. It's perfect timing as the Christmas Shopping season has started! Doh!
I will pay it off still... and cross my fingers that DH won't use the card often.
I had a whimsical idea to use our soon-2-b spoiled vanilla half and half (creamer) for french toast to use up our older bread stash.
Voila! Flavored, no fuss breakfast! I bet any flavor would make tasty french toast.
I paid off our Sears Card! May it burn in... well, you get the picture.
