BEYOND EXTREME CHEAPSKATE - TLC

December 29th, 2011 at 11:23 am

My goodness you missed a doozie on that show last night. A family with 6 kids -- they do not use toilet paper. Mom cuts up pieces of cloth to use in place of toilet paper. They place the dirty cloths in a small plastic garbage container and then she washes and REUSES them. And, while at the park, in the midst of side stepping dog poop, she cuts chives and other greenery from the ground to use in their salad. One last thing -- she buys EXPIRED groceries ON PURPOSE to feed the family. This behavior is beyond being cheap -- it's a tad kooky.

Ooops, I lied...

I said I wouldn't spend money today because I couldn't leave the house due to the icy weather. Well I just completed my tax returns on line and e-filed them with good ole Turbo Tax which cost me around 100 bucks. A big juicy refund will arrive in a few weeks though so I don't mind dishing out the $$$ today!!! (Thank you American Opportunity Credit)

ICE, ICE BABY UH HUH.....

Housing Market

October 15th, 2010 at 07:14 am

I can't believe I didn't post all summer. Whirlwind! Anyway, home today and watching the business news. Bank of America will be lowering the mortgage rates across the board for homeowners in Nevada to try to help with the housing crises. While I think this is more fair then lowering the mortgage balance, reports indicate that even with the lower rate, homeowners may make a few mortgage payments but eventually will revert to the same position they were in before. Such a mess

My life revolves around my bank account
