I can't wait for my cell phone contract to expire

Ugh I feel like they're gouging me. They have a new plan that I can't switch to because you don't get the equipment discount that I get now. Since I got a new phone last year and added my niece to my plan this year, also getting her a phone, I have to wait until next year before my contract is up. Technically it won't be up but if you're within 5 months of your contract ending, they don't hit you with a early termination fee.

Once my contract ends, I'm going with a plan that is a little cheaper than I pay now. I'll save about $35 per month if not more. As far as phones go, I can always grab a cheap phone from somewhere. I do love my phone but I can get by with anything similar, I don't need the newest model.

Hopefully these next few months will fly by and I'll have a newer, less expensive plan before I know it.

Living Together

Thanks to Roman May

I love living together more than I ever thought possible but to be honest, it’s a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. I can’t imagine why people act like this is the easiest thing in the world but to be honest, it’s nearly broken us up a few times! I love my boyfriend to death but he’s got some really annoying habits I just can’t seem to break him of and geez if I can’t get past them all. We get into little arguments about the stupidest things like the Alarm System and the dog’s walking schedule and all kinds of things like that. I know it’s dumb but sometimes it’s just really tough getting rid of all the things you pick up living alone for so long and we’re just having a hard time getting adjusted to each other. There’s nothing like being able to adapt to living with another person successfully and we’re going to get to that point one of these days, I just know it!

I'm almost halfway there

With my house savings account that is. I need $2k and I have $890 in the account. I should have more than $110 go in by the end of this month so I will definitely have 1/2 of my goal.

Just for clarity, I will have more than the total of $4k when I'm ready to buy my house. It's just for this particular program, they require that you save $2k. I chose to save over a one year period. The program allows you to save up to 3 years and then you have another 2 years to use the money. I wanted to get my savings out of the way instead of dragging it out.

It feels good knowing that I'm almost there.

Lawsuits don't always make it better

There is a school of thought that thinks that getting money is always a good thing. They don't care or even stop to consider where the money may come from. It could be a car accident, a slip and fall or a Actos lawsuit. While an Actos lawsuit may seem harmless it's really not.

Actos is a medication used to treat diabetes. The problem is that it can lead to serious complications such as heart attacks, heart failure and even an increase in bladder cancer. Of course all of these things can lead to an Actos Lawsuit. If you see the medication, Pioglitazone, just know that it is the chemical name for Actos and was sold under the trade names Actos, ActoplusMet, Competact and Duetact.

Knowledge is power.
