Car Issues :'(

June 26th, 2014 at 10:50 pm

The bane of owning vehicles is having issues with them.

Well after asking certain people at work (mechanics) as well as someone that actually owned a Kia. The person that owned one actually had the same issues told me exactly what is wrong. Pilot bearing and the clutch. ARGH!

It will be a few months till I actually get it fixed but I have the motorcycle (having some issues with that as well) but it means that I'm only driving each one half the time. So I'm hoping that it can wait till I have the money.

My friend told me that it should be about $600 to fix both the SUV. I could put it on a card but I'd rather save up the money.

I am in the process of cancelling an account so that I can save up quicker. But with moving and whatnot, it's going to be a hectic month or two.

I have gotten off track for a lot of things this past year.

My couponing is none-existent at this point. I'm moving in several months and I need to get on the ball with it. Especially for paying off my debts.

When I move that'll save me a lot of money and I'll be able to put a majority of that towards debt but I really do miss couponing.

Being able to save over half of the retail price sometimes is an awesome feeling and I miss that. Time to get on the ball!

Lucky for me the shop on post takes coupons up to six (6) months old!

Credit Card Debt

June 11th, 2014 at 03:34 pm

Well I WAS credit card debt free but since moving into my apartment I've purchased a few things that I actually needed as well as other furniture.

One is a line of credit with 0% interest rate right now and the other is my credit card attached with my bank, and also the Emblem card that I'm still trying to get the APR lowered.

The Emblem card is $30/mo, bank card is $91/mo and the line of credit is $114/mo. So I'll be trying to pay off the line of credit first since it's the most that I pay for monthly.

When I move into my new place in a few months I know that I'll be able to put more money towards paying them off.

We'll see.

Funny Thing Happened at Work Today

June 6th, 2014 at 11:47 pm

This morning as we were doing physical training I happened to mention that I'll be moving soon and that I was going to go and sign lease papers today.

So a fellow associate mentions that he's renting out his house (duplex) for $350 (includes everything). So I'm going to rent from him. Can't wait to move!
