Money Whoes

So yesterday I found out that I over drafted my checking account over the weekend, leaving me with $99 in fees plus whatever I bought. I ended up giving away half of my pay check yesterday to the damn bank leaving me with about $78 in my account to live off of for next week.

That episode truly pissed me off mainly because that has never happened to me before. To make matters worse, I calculated that I had spent about $50 on gas and groceries to end up paying triple that amount to my freakin’ bank! And just when I thought I would be able to have a little bit of extra cash to at least go to Stitches Midwest next weekend (buying anything may require more money that I don't have), this shit happens.

So you know what this means? Like many fanatical knitters I have a credit card, and if I have to I will use it.

Why can’t money grow on one of these?

Credit cards are evil. Try not to use if you don't have to. Only if the yarn is just that great and you can't get it anywhere else.

I'm a yarn enabler but I'm more of a stickler for good credit.

Oh Kelli, I remember my college/grad school days!

Let's hope for a lean week.

that sucks!!! well, i think credit cards are evil too, but not if you know you can pay it off when the bill comes, and you don't have any other surprises from the bank.
