It's been a while since I've been around because I've been busy looking for a new job. As you know, my current job treated me poorly and promised me a big raise in October to take on a 2nd full time job at the company. I did and never got the raise. Well, with your help I decided NOT to wait it out and put in my time-- that I deserved more and needed more so. . . .

I got a new job! I'll be taking home $500 more a month after taxes with better benefits so I'll be able to stop paying out of pocket to supplement mine! So I will certainly be CC debt free in one year! Wow, there's a light at the end of the tunnel!

The only problem is that in celebration and prepration for my new job, I went shopping and bought 2 pairs of pants, a blazer, a sweater and 2 shirts. . . I spent $150 BUT it's all very classy and professional and brands like French Connection so it was a darn good deal!

congrats on your new job..

FYI.....any expenses accrued while job hunting is a tax writeoff. Save your receipts for next years.
