October Review

Life has been so busy - just in general, too much to do and very little time. Today we have a goal of getting the storm windows on and the A/C's out of the windows. I also need to dig up some dead plants and plant some things that need to be dropped - some mums and roses, mostly that have been in pots all summer.

How did October go?
  • No increase in the BEF...
  • But also, NO use of the cc's. I think that ROCKS.
  • Although the tough part of the month was over by the 20th with payday, we've been doing very well with the Oct paycheck (we get paid monthly). Perhaps I need to do monthly reviews around payday, since that's really our month...
  • Got new life insurance...
  • But haven't cancelled the old yet. The new doesn't have my check as cleared yet. As soon as that goes through, the old is over and we'll get a check that will help us refund the BEF and xmas fund.
  • Only ate out twice (although once counts for Nov, I guess, but I mean per paycheck - we went out to breakfast yesterday, planned out, and it was great).
  • Made some ebay sales, even though I'm still waiting on payment for one. What would you do? Person writes back after 3rd email and says they are waiting to make sure another auction clears before paying us. wtf?
  • Got my computer fixed so I can continue with ebay downstairs.

Not bad, hey?

I sell a lot on EBAY too. How long do you give the winner to pay. I give them 72 hours, how long have you been waiting for payment? I will send two e-mails as a gentle reminder. The third time I report them to EBAY and open an upaid item dispute. This will either make them pay up or tell the turth. Sounds like they are blowing smoke!

Hey Kris,
What happened with that guy? I had someone with no feedback buy something from me before and not pay. I know how frustrating it is! Let me know!
