Lord Knows I Don’t Like Numbers

A few years back I called all the credit card companies that I held cards for in my wallet and tried to get them to work with me and some how come up with a way for me to get a better deal that what I was currently stuck in. With money becoming more and more of an issue, we all have been told things that we can do in order to make things easier for us until our government gets us out of this economic nightmare that is literally ruining billions of people’s lives.

These “tips” that are being thrown at us are basically the same “tips” over and over and over, with the first tip almost always being to contact and communicate with your creditors, which sounds easy enough, but it didn’t do a darned thing for me, nor any one else that I know that has made the effort to spend a good amount of time on the phone and the computer in order to get our creditors to budge.

I was hoping to put a dent in my credit card debt with some of the money that I got back from Uncle Sam. I did make a dent, just not as big as I was hoping for, other things kept popping up that I thought (at the time) I needed and deserved more than just sending it off to these ungrateful credit card companies that are eating me up alive. But………….I have decided to take some time on the computer and check out some of the balance transfer credit cards that are out there. I did find a good site all ready balancetransfers dot com, that has a balance transfer calculator that I filled in, in less than one minute, where I found that I could possibly be saving over $400 a year just on the one VISA credit card that I have. That was an eye opener considering that my VISA is the one with the lowest balance as well as the lowest interest rate of all of the charge cards that I have.

So after seeing that I have bookmarked the site and will gather up my previous credit card bills and sit my butt down and see what numbers come up when I put in their information. But I wanted to enjoy my dinner while it is hot and take my hot bubble bath that I’ve been waiting for all day long and then get back to business, I don’t like numbers and dread the thought of doing all of this. But as it usually turns out, it will be quick and more simple than I thought and I’ll have it done in no time and I’ll be ready for action at that point!

Gun Owners Of America T Shirt

As a proud member of the NRA I love getting emails with good stories and even better photos such as these that I’ve selected from a recent emails that one of my shooting buddies sent me to enjoy!

“I was once asked by a lady visiting if I had a gun in the house. I said I did. She said, ‘Well I certainly hope it isn’t loaded!’ To which I said, “Of course it is loaded, it can’t work without bullets!” She then asked, “Are you that afraid of someone evil coming into your house?” My reply was, “No not at all. I am not afraid of the house catching fire either, but I have fire extinguishers around, and they are all loaded too.”

Insurance Savings Are For Real

I’ve had Nationwide Insurance for as long as I can remember having auto insurance. We are always seeing the commercials from the various large insurance companies urging us to switch over and save around $300 a year by doing so. Well I have to say that I went online and got a quote from Progressive and I switched over today and guess what – I’m saving $50 a month which totals $300, just like the commercials are saying. Too funny!

Affordable Health Insurance Website

One of the Big questions these days is about the affordable health care act that will affect each and every one of us here in the good old U.S. of A. Going online can be a great resource for this issue. I have found a great affordable health insurance website that folks in North Carolina can turn to for all of their insurance questions regarding this affordable health care act as well as other health insurance concerns.

This website is nchealthagency.com. My best friend lives in the beautiful state of North Carolina and we share a lot of information via emails and Facebook. The 21st century has truly made communicating a much more interesting, easy and fun way to learn things and to keep in contact with people from all over. So if I can help her by sending this info about this particular health agency nc then so be it.

Flexibility Is The Key Word In Online Schooling

I just realized that by one simple lightening strike most certainly will effect my nephews recent effort to utilize the online degree programs in game design that he is supposed to start next week with one of the Online Degree Programs that he has been so excited about starting for some time now and that he found by using http://nces.ed.gov/collegenavigator/. I guess that is one major draw back about using an Online School to further one’s education that is such a big hit with so many people now.

Now most people would be able to go to the library and use the computers that most libraries have now for the general public to use for free, but my nephew has such a wacky work schedule. Most of the time he works at night as a D.J. I’m not sure how his hours are going to match up with the local libraries that are down there and close to their home. But if he wants it bad enough, he has youth on his side, I’m sure he will figure something out until they get the situation at home taken care of. After all one of the main reasons to take classes online is all about flexibility, right!

I asked my sis if they had home owner’s insurance and thank fully she does, but she thinks that her policy has a $1,000 deductible and that is going to suck, big time. I have never heard of a $1,000 deductible before, I think that that is totally outrageous and I can only hope that are premiums are way, way low to have such a high deductible to handle at a time of crisis.
