Covergirl Mascara 2pks

August 31st, 2015 at 02:44 pm



My Mom and myself were purusing the clearance at Target and found these awesome Covergirl Mascara 2pks.

There were 2 kinds:
Full Lash Bloom (Bought 13)
*ETA - Sold 2 for $8.00 each on FB on 8/27/15
*ETA - Sold 1 for $8.00 on FB on 12/6/15
*ETA - Sold 1 for $8.00 on FB on 7/24/16
*ETA - Sold 1 for $8.00 at 5/5/17 rummage sale
Lash Blast Volume (Bought 5)
*ETA - Sold 4 for $8.00 each on FB on 8/27/15
*ETA - Sold 1 for $8.00 at 9/23/16 rummage sale


I am not positive on the original price, I think around $12.00-$14.00 per 2pk. They were on clearance and then we had a $1.00 off coupon for each one, and we paid $3.97 per 2pk. We marked each pack for $8.00 each.

Lost the receipt so....hmmmm

(Sorry no pic since it's not letting me load pics to this site)

As we continue to try to get ready for the BIG rummage sale, in the middle of trying to finish everything up for the wedding, and the (hopefully) closing on the new house....I found a bag of CVS buys that I know I got somewhere around Dec/Jan....and never logged or marked them....and for some reason the receipt isn't in the bag or anywhere to be found, so I have no idea what I paid or what the original cost was?!

$20K Update

August 27th, 2015 at 01:57 pm

My numbers may be a little bit off right now as the majority of my savings is in my checking account to pay for our down payment if we EVER get to close on this house! But here is my best estimate of where we are at for now.

Now the bank is telling us that closing is held up because they can't find a comparable home in the area to complete the appraisal. Frown

We also opened a new savings account together in the town where we live so we don't always have to wait till the next time we go somewhere to deposit cash.
We had a $200 check we received as a wedding gift that we put in there to start it out.

Current Balance $26,605.00
+$25.00 DF Payday to savings
+$50.00 My Payday to savings
+$15.00 Bud Light Rebate
+$200.00 Wedding Gift

-$2530.00 Payoff Ring
-$1400.00 Football trip
+$1700.00 Payday
+$580.00 DF Payday
Balance $24,845.00

Local Savings $200.00
GC Savings $2500.00
Capital 360 Savings $1265.00
Holding Money for Down Payment $20,880.00

Hmmm...nope, still not working. Has anyone heard anything on if they are working to get that fixed or if there is anything we can do individually to fix it?

Debt Update - 2 new zeros! New goal!

August 23rd, 2015 at 06:26 am

Well.....where to start!? Less then 2 weeks till the wedding! We are busting our butts to get everything done....my parents have offered to give us $500 to help with expenses so that is great, that will pretty much cover all of my clothing (dress, shoes, bra, undies, jeweled sash, and hair pins), so that is a huge help!

House Closing - STILL NOT DONE. The bank is being ridiculous....seriously every time we get them the giant pile of paperwork they asked for, then they ask for another big pile of paperwork. We have been working on this since mid June! They actually told us we needed to provide a signed and dated letter that said "Why we were moving down the street".....UM WHAT? We have to tell you WHY we are moving? So I typed a letter that said "I want a different house". So annoying! Lucky for the bank, DF has been handling 95% of dealing with them and he is less b*tchy then me...lol. But we are both pretty fed up. If this would have closed in a reasonable time frame, we could have been closed on the house 6 weeks before the wedding, and had time to get moved....as is we will probably close the week before or the week of the wedding, so we won't be able to work on moving, and the week after the wedding is the BIG rummage sale so we won't be able to move that week either, so instead of moving mid to late July, it will more likely be mid to late September! Grrr!


New Zeros - The bank also wanted us to make the numbers look a little better so they asked us to pay off the 2 cards we had balances on, David's Bridal ($400) and Ring - Iddeal ($2700). So we took money out of savings to pay those 2 off. It wasn't the way we wanted to do things, but it will be good to be rid of the ring payment ($213 per month). Yeah for 2 new zeros!!



New Goal - So now the next goal is paying off the loan from my Mom. Our payment is $300 per month, and interest is only 4%, so we should be able to pay it off relatively quickly, our goal is 1 year. Our plan is to just make our regular payments to her each month, and we will have a separate savings account that we will be putting any extra money into, once that savings account balance equals the balance we owe her, we will then make payment to her in full.


Celebrations for this update:

-2 new zeroes!

Update on Me

August 17th, 2015 at 01:29 pm

Hi All! I have been MIA lately, things are just nuts here and I can't keep up!

The wedding is in less then 3 weeks! There is still so much to do and I am super stressed out and having bad dreams about things not being done on time!

The house closing is STILL NOT DONE. We are extremely frustrated. We provided everything that is needed for the loan, then weeks and weeks later we were notified that they needed more, completely unnecessary paperwork! MAD! Example: We need a signed and dated letter that says why you want to move down the street. For real?!?! #1 - Why do you care? #2 - Why is that your business?? If I want to buy a new house, I shouldn't have to explain that to anyone?! Grrrr!

I have been trying super hard to lose some weight before the wedding (unfortunately when DF and I start dating and I finally felt happy again I gained a bunch of weight). I am pretty frustrated as I have been trying really hard and just not getting anywhere.....add to the stress of the wedding and house and I feel like I am losing my mind!

Oh and did I mention the BIG rummage sale is just 4 days after the wedding.....so I have no prep time....

Also I hurt my leg pretty badly in June at a softball tourney, thought it would get better on it's own, it hasn't, so I have been going to PT a few times a week as well.

And now my pictures won't load on my blog at all.....I use this camera and computer for lots of other sites (FB, etc.) where I am posting pics and don't have any problems so not sure why it wont work here.....

So there is my rant! Praying for mid September to get here so I can breathe for a minute!

Debt Update - 8/7/15

August 8th, 2015 at 02:19 pm

Here is my 2 week update! We are down $450.20 in 2 weeks, and $3784.28 since 6/19/15. My David's Bridal card went up a little bit as I had a few more items to buy for the wedding, but that one is at 0% until next June, so not worried about that one.

We are taking a trip to Denver in October to watch the Vikings play, it's my wedding present to DF.....unfortunatley as someone who isn't too interested in football....I had NO IDEA football tickets were so expensive! So next few updates might not be so good as I am funneling money to paying for the trip. Also still paying for wedding food, cake, and some other small items....and a $400 boat repair, and $150 vet bill...all kinds of NEW bills for me, who has never had a boat or a dog.....lol. All I can do is make sure we are at least going DOWN every update.

STILL WAITING ON THE HOUSE CLOSING!!

For whatever reason I can't load any pictures right now....so I will just list out the debts for this update.
