From Thrift Store to Ebay?

September 14th, 2013 at 03:18 pm

There is a thrift store on post that I visit from time to time. I just thought about it the other day and mentioned it to a co-worker.

I was thinking of buying certain items from the thrift store and selling them on Ebay.

For instance, I bought a white strapless floor length gown for $13.00. I bought it because every year there is an annual military ball. I also thought that I could give it to my youngest daughter for her wedding gown if she wants it.

But I also thought about selling it on Ebay eventually.

The thrift store also has other items such as books, DVDs, clothes and furniture.

You think this is a good idea?

Baby Clothes & A Bit of Fun

September 6th, 2013 at 03:04 pm

Just bought baby clothes yesterday for about $30 from a friend's wife. I will also be cruising the yard sale this Saturday because I'm looking for a road bike. I may also purchase more baby clothes.

As for entertainment I will be going to bingo this Saturday. It'll cost at least $17 but I thought I'd give it a try and also there is a chance to win prizes. If I win, I win but my intent is to have a bit of fun.

So Far So Good

This month one of my goals is not to spend as much even with my "allowance". There are some things that I want that I'm going to try and find a cheaper price for. Such as a road bike. This weekend there is a yard sale on my post. So I'm going to look there for a bike and baby clothes for the grandchildren.

But other than that, I've only been spending money on things that I need. Which is great but then again it's only the fifth day in LOL!

Should I Be Upset?

I have a timeshare... yeah yeah I know... but anyways lol

I have a timeshare with the current rate of APR at 17%. I have sent in paperwork to get my rate down to 6%.

I sent in this paperwork (& it has been received) at least 2 months ago. I actually tried to send it 4 months ago but the person that actually handles that kept stating that she hadn't received it.

Now I know that it has been received but my rate STILL says 17%. I do have an account manager at the timeshare place that is handling it but she can't directly put that information on my account. It is the responsibility of someone else. My account manager has verified that the paperwork has been received and given to the correct person.

But in the meantime I'm still making payments and nothing is happening. I'm getting very frustrated with this. Even if I was informed that the rate would be backdated it's still "blah, blah, blah" for me because IT HASN'T BEEN TAKEN CARE OF.

Do I have a right to be upset? I can't get in touch with the responsible person directly, only my account manager who has helped me out tremendously in the past. I don't blame her at all because it's not her job to update the rate. She was able to confirm the receipt of paperwork but that is about it...

Again, should I be upset about this?

A Nice Little Surprise

September 1st, 2013 at 05:55 pm

Today I went to pay my rent. I was expecting to pay more because last month I didn't pay for the washer/dryer I'm renting from them because they put it in after we moved in.

'Lo and behold when I got there they stated that the are not charging me for the partial and I just pay the $860. WOW!

I just saved money again! Even if it's about $25 I'm satisfied with that! I really do like my new place. =D
