Good morning! A little financial miscellany:


Okay I’m off to work. Have a lovely day :)


In 2014 my husband & I downsized our home to speed up our quest for Financial Freedom. We swapped our large three bed house, for a small two bed apartment to clear our mortgage and give us enough budget freedom to travel and still save for the future. Our dream, after achieving Financial Freedom, is to spend part of every year living abroad.

    I say use the money to find out about the wetspot That does sound a little dirty but you know what I mean

  2. It would be tragic if you stopped paying into the lottery pool and your work group had a big win; you’ll have to count that as an essential expense, LOL!

    I feel the same way about the credit card. I’m using it for the grocery gift cards but I have to say I still feel quite uncomfortable with it at this point.

    Some credit cards, such as the one I use, show all transactions immediately and show up as temporary authorizations until they clear processing. That would get rid of the problem you are seeing but it probably varies by card.

      I could make payments to the cc as soon as I use it but then it would perhaps be confusing…need to think about this one.

    I am attempting to charge everything to my cash rewards credit card in 2013. Because I do all my banking online I can make multiple payments throughout the month. When I see a charge appear in my online bill I pay it from my chequing account. No balance at the end of the month!

    I would spend the extra money on the wood rot situation. I learned, after a very expensive car repair, to keep up with maintenance and not wait and see.
