Thursday Notes and Updates

Job Situation: One week can certainly make a difference. I now am unemployed. I knew it was coming,but when it happened, I was still shocked and hurt.  Rejection, even though I was not at fault, is still hard.  So I have filed for unemployment and will not try to get through that process.  The VP that "eliminated my position" did write me a letter of reference, Big Deal!!  What I  really need is a job ( insert  expletive here) ......   Resumes are being sent daily and I am talking  to contacts from my past.  Something will come along  and I know it will all work out.

Debt Repayment:  Last week I paid off a $4500.00 Credit Card.  I may have should have waited and only paid half of it since I knew my job was in jeopardy.  It is done now, so will just have to move on and try to keep the other credit card in check. I am also holding off  re-starting my automatic funding of my ING sub-accounts.

I did update information on my $500 Holiday Challenge here:  My Coke Rewards will definitely help keep my costs down this Christmas.  Also, SwagBucks is going to help me out too. 

In between sending out resumes, I decided to rent a booth at an Antique Store here in town.  Here is the before and after of my  booth.  I have a lot of collectibles that I can get rid of, and this will keep me busy as well.

That's a great idea about the booth. Wishing you luck with that and on the job front.
