Hey all, how did your weekend go? I don't know if people can reply to posts, i can't yet. Just thought I would see how people did on the weekend. Did you stay on budget or overspend?
Marie just read your truck post. I think this is good that you guys are making the payments and using his previous truck to pay for son's education. I think this will sit better with you than the other way around? Believe me, I get the truck thing. They are supper expensive! But we use ours all the time out here and it is great to have something really reliable.
We bought a new gps that was not really planned for. Ours broke. And a new car seat for Lila. And we went to Costco. Ouch. What an expensive weekend. Plus I just found out I will have to pay back more child tax credits because I didn't alert them early enough that I was married and i was collecting as if I was single. I thought I had that cleared up!! Now I have to come up with like $800. I've already paid over $1200 back. I just don't have it right now. I might just leave it right now, the lady said it doesn't affect your credit rating and each month will just take off money they would be giving me. So I will leave it for a bit and see what I can do.
kt, I saw your Nov post. My heart goes out to you. Please don't give up and wait until he "learns". Grab onto one thing and still try to make a difference. Keep thinking of ways to get though, like foot ball jerseys are not going to help your daughter's future and she is getting older every day. Lots of people try to do this one their own and are not as successful but it usually works out better than giving up. Just don't feel deprived, because I can really tell the level of resentment in your post is super high. You know and I know this is not good and will blow.
I miss my tickers. My roof loan has gone down to regular payments at just under $17,000 and we got a bit of extra money and put it on our truck loan which is now $6,486 and with regular payment. We are excited about this.
Have a good frugal week everyone!
