Beginning of the Month Updates

August 5th, 2013 at 10:26 am

This month, I am mostly on plan thus far - I paid my sister back her $800. She was really sweet and offered to let me have it for longer if I wanted to, but I insisted that I pay it back and I am glad. I am paying minimum on all my debts except the highest interest Discover card. I sent $700 to the Discover card this morning. A few more cards will be paid for later this month on AutoPay. The only thing that could have been different was some impulse spending a trip to the coast last weekend. I had planned on sending a little bit more to Discover, but I can't now. I will be tightening my belt for the rest of the month to keep on track.

I have not heard from the rental car company yet. My insurance agent called me last Friday and said that she had not heard from them yet either. She said that she had then called them up to ask what was going on. If I could have reached through the phone and smacked her, I would have done so. Why could she not just leave the whole matter be? I hope that in case the rental car company has "forgotten" about this, they won't now go and search for damages to the car having been prompted by her! I live in a constant state of fearful anticipation that they are going to send me a hefty bill. How long do you think I should wait before feeling like the whole thing is behind me? It has been almost 2 weeks now since I returned the car.

    This big corporations could take awhile for it to all hash out...or not at all. I honestly wouldn't be surprised if you don't get charged.

    You may get away with not being charged. If it were me, to be on the safe side and feel less anxious, I think I would start seeing how I could move money around or what I could sell to come up with $1500 or so. If it turns out they don't charge, then I can put the money back into various categories. If they do, then at least I have it covered (or if it's more than $1500, I at least have a starting point.)

    I really hope so. I would love it if they forget all about it. In the meantime, I am collecting snowflakes and have some items on Craigslist that I hope will sell. T definitely won't get $1500 in the next month from these channels, but I will keep trying.
