kohl's sale

October 22nd, 2006 at 05:16 am

hey all, just a quick note to let you all know that Kohl's is having a heck of a sale this weekend.
first of all, i know i should have written this on thursday when it started, but i have been really busy, and am just now starting to get things together and good to go and caught up(for obvious reasons)(i will write more about the wedding and this last week tomorrow)
anyways, kohl's is having a 30%-70% off sale. i bought my wife a pair of $100 earrings for $26.32.
clothes on sale too, everything on sale.
hopefully this is not too late, and if you need stuff for kids and all that for school or whatever, now is the time to get it.
happy hunting!

getting married monday

October 13th, 2006 at 10:18 pm

well people, the big day is Monday. after looking at our finances, and realizing that we are so strapped, which things are a lot better now than they were when i first came here(A LOT BETTER!), we decided to get married early due to the fact that my fiance's work does not offer insurance.... i just got insurance at my new job.
we pay $200/month for her insurance, and it is just killing us(along with her $300/month car payment). all of the overtime i am working is BARELY covering the insurance(our finaces are right on with my regular time at work, but the overtime was paying just enough to cover the insurance). all of a sudden, work is getting slower and no overtime is available, therefore putting us way below our financial needs.
my insurance is $70/month for me, and $70/month for her. so we will be going from $270 to $140/month, which will give us a lot of breathing room.
of course, this is not ideal, and we are keeping it from a lot of people to not take it away from our wedding in june, but it is either that, or reducing her coverage, and if something does happen, then we will owe a lot more, or her not having coverage at all, either of which is not an option.
i think this is the smartest thing we could do, and the lady at the courthouse says she sees it all the time. we are not having it published until june, and like i said, parents and close families are going to be notified, that is all.
keep us in your thoughts and prayers on monday!
