*total rant ahead*

Husband has lost cell phone #4 in the last year.


I've had numerous "discussions" (read: heated arguments) with him regarding his absent mindedness to no avail. He DOES need one for work (on call at times), but this is insanity.

*rant over*

In more positive news, all credit cards continue to be paid in full monthly and we have saved 5,000 since March.

Credit Card Budgets...

I hate to say this, but using my PC points Mastercard for nearly every purchase I make has been the best financial move I've ever made!

Not only do I get PC points (grocery rewards), but my credit card bill acts like an itemized monthly budget. The danger, of course, is going crazy with your credit. In my case, however, I find that a lump sum payment at the end of the month frees up cash flow during the remainder of the month.

Is anybody else out there able to use their credit cards in a similar functional fashion?

In other non money related news, I am going to be trying to get my driver's license this summer. I've gone through the learner's stage before, but never had the guts to pay for lessons. What can I say - pa scared me off the experience and then life got in the way. Here I go!!!
