the first thing to do is look at the upcoming budget and see what you can redo and maybe fit in this extra expense. The other option is to go to the BEF and take out the 103.76, put the snowball (detroitharmonie.com payday loans for bad credit) on hold til it replenishes, and move on from there.

But on the brightside of this, you’re aware of what needs to be done and it needs to be handled. You have a plan in place that allows for things to happen without the significant impact that it used to be.

My hubby and I started FPU classes at our church in January and finished in April. I don’t want to share our numbers with people that I go to church with, so I came here, where you all understand and won’t judge. We’re still stuggling with our budget. I was hoping someone would look over the figures we have to work with and give me some ideas on what you would do to get this thing working. I’ve tried everything I can think of. Sometimes when another person looks at the figures they see something different. I want to get these bill turned around, so they’re on time and the phone quits ringing.

I just went to the Lowe’s website

I just went to the Lowe’s website to print out a copy of the “paid in full” statement from where we paid them off in December. The statement had been due to cut off on January 13, 2013 so I wanted the joy of printing out the zero balance statement for my records. Only despite the website saying the last statement has me at a zero balance it shows no statement online past the Dec 13, 2013. Hmm, bummer I really wanted to see that zero statement. But instead I printed a copy of the page showing it said we have a zero balance AND the payment history page as well. Just in case there is ever any question in the future. At least both of those say we owe zero to them.Once that was done I cleared that bookmarked website from my favorites list—Now that was fun! Jan who thinks they could have at least posted one final statement online in OK
