Last night we had an community board meeting and I’m on the board. It was quite an eye opener to sit there as residence talked about pipe leaks, mold abatement costs, lawsuits and money. Remember, I know only too well about the plumbing issues in this place as that is what happened to me 10 years ago when I bought it and part of the reason I’m in BK.
As I sat there I wondered…. If they only knew how close to the edge I live! What would I do if it was in my building again? How would I pay for it? My answer to myself was… I’d figure it out. I’d borrow money, let them lien my condo, somehow, I would make it work.
It was just another reminder that I probably didn’t make a financially sound decision booking and paying for the trip to Cabo. Let me tell you this…its probably the last actual vacation until the BK is discharged! I probably should have waited until half way to do it, but we are almost there.
I already feel the stress in my tummy, I sure hope it doesn’t throw me into a flare! Crossed fingers.
Last night after I got home from some errands and work, I decided to reformat one of my laptops, it was unresponsive and I am over it. This will save quite a bit by making this live longer.
This newly formatted laptop should last us for awhile, at least a year or so.
Then I thought… hmmm, what can I sell?
I remembered this Keyboard and Ukulele in my daughters closet. I also have her old DS as well as the Pink Chandelier! ( I gotta get that painted!)
Tonight I’m putting them all on Craigs list. Tomorrow I’m going to go thru my closets and start packing things into big, plastic trash bags to get ready for a garage sale.
I have lots of clothes and stuff that I didn’t have time to go thru for the last one. I think I can make at least $100.00 and that will help.
The pantry is full, I have staples and just need to buy a few things for my daughter to eat for her lunches next week, but we are pretty good for the most part.
I am constantly thinking about money and how to save it and make it stretch even more than I did before!
Today I brought my breakfast (as I always do) this will be a staple for me for awhile! Have you ever noticed the less money you have the more carbs get consumed?
I hope you are all doing well and that with my ups and downs maybe you see something of me in you!
Maybe you need a vacation and need to just do it, maybe you decided wow, what a bad idea she made, I won’t do that.
Either way, I am glad you are here on the journey with me as I try to navigate this BK and live a life that I won’t totally regret!
I am off to start my weekend and hopefully get some stuff ready to sell.
