Just what we didn't need

September 5th, 2007 at 01:08 am

My Dh's grandmother passed away today. That means he'll be flying to IN for a 2-3 day stay. Meaning eating out and any other misc expenses my DH might be tempted to purchase. Not a good thing on our bottom line this week. I know death is not something that can be controlled and I certainly did not want his grandmother to suffer any longer.

Went to the grocery store this evening and spent 53.00. Not too bad. For 5 people that will last us the rest of Sept with my meal planning, other than the cost of buying milk.

I'm able to do much more organizing with my oldest in Kindergarten.

MBNA CC- goal balance will be 6000 by end of Sept. Current balance= 6882.50 @ 0% interest.

BOA-CC goal balance will be 1000 by end of Sept. Current balance =1459.47 @ 15% interest.

I need to do some research into the BOA CC and find out exactly why the interest rate is so high. We have a good credit score, so I'm thinking it should be somewhere in the 5-9% range.

With the husband gone for the next couple of days, I'll be able to go into the storage we have in our attic and pull out some things that I think we can sell.

I should also check my balance at a children's consignment store and see if I can have them cut me a check- I will apply that toward the BOA-cc.

    Sorry to hear about your lost. Definately give BoA a call I am sure they will reduce the rate, good luck
