Yesterday’s progress….

…and a little Yippee….

Yippee first.

One of my credit card companies finally gave in and sent me the 0% APR balance transfer offer that I have been coveting. (They were probably missing my monthly electronic transfer to them, since I paid off my card in October.) I knew they would see reason. I’ve checked, month after month, and until the mail yesterday, the best they could do was a transfer that “enjoyed the same rate as my purchase rate”…. Umhm, ya see, somehow, transferring to 17.9 % isn’t all that exciting. But, if you wait long enough, they CAVE. (See October’s blog for more details.) It couldn’t have come at a better time, either, as the low ‘special rate’ I was enjoying at the other company expired on Jan 2. For 20 days, they thought I would enjoy my new, (ridiculously) higher rate.

Huh. They are toast. Card will be paid off as soon as the transfer goes through.

Now, back to flinging….after

Look at that! I have the pots and pans drawers, and the dreaded Tupperware cabinet finished as well.

What I flung yesterday were memories. I had a nice walk through many a Saturday afternoon with my friend in New York, when we would be literally climbing around wooden pallets at Fish’s Eddy warehouse in St. George, creating table settings out of the piles of china stacked everywhere. It was a great place to rummage, and we always had a blast! The memories, they are still on the shelf. But some of the dishware is going to Goodwill. (I can still serve 22, as long as you aren’t looking for matching 5 piece settings. Seating, however is BYOC.)

Today, we are flinging under the sink. Fun.

  1. I know why the Tupperware cupboard is called ‘dreaded’. We purged when we moved six months ago, and have since emptied it and matched lids to containers twice since then, and today I can find no matching lids. A gremlin must live in there!

  2. Trish had just asked me the whereabouts of containers that we had lids for this morning. Plasticware and lids must be akin to socks in some way…always a mismatch.
