I call it the money pit!!!

My best friend is getting married and Im her maid of honor and just by tagging along with her for the past few months I’ve realized how big of a money pit/ bottomless pit planning a wedding. First is the engagement ceremony, then we have the showers, the parties and the wedding it self. All these parties cost ridiculous amounts of money. I totally feel bad for anyone who is planning a wedding. Everything you want to the smallest things you can think of is an extra cost! We decided to cut some cost by making our own money-box. We managed to save some money with that idea about $30 which is not bad. But even buying a flat plain box costs us $20 which we later realized we could have got the same thing two doors down for $5 less. haha Another thing that annoys me is the guest’s gifts idea . basically we’re telling people please come to our party that we spent thousands of dollars on and we even going to give …

Compromised debit card, again!

OK everyone, you know how we are in recession and not everyone might have a job or working that much. Keep that image and add the fact that I haven’t worked for a week (no income) and its almost end of the month (bills coming in!) and oh plans to go on a a 10 day long vacation in the following week. You got that image in your head? Yeah, it’s a little bit of panic of what if I run out of money while I’m gone and the excitement that you know even during shitty recession times you still have the luxury of being able to not for a week and still go on a long vacation. Now, picture checkign your bank account online and realizing some A-hole has withdrew all your money out of your bank account! Shiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiit…. Yep, that was me at mid-night last night! I was feeling so violated and mad since my bank didn’t even bother to notify me when they saw someone withdrawing random amounts of money from my …
