Keeping up with the Jones

I work in an office that is 90% female ( do guys do this too)? Now that the warm weather is here, it seems to be nothing but competition among the 'girls'. As a pf blogger, I am watching all this and it makes me sad. Of course, the conversation naturally turns to me and my non $500 gucci bag wearing self.

Did I also mention these girls all make below $45,000? Am not judging (hell who am I fooling, I am) but why complain about being broke, but have a new purse next week. Then complain that you are not getting paid enough. Well, you are not a wise keeper of what you are getting paid now anyway.

It would be so easy to fall into this temptation and mess. However, I am going to stand on the sidelines and look at my big financial picture. It will keep me focussed.

99.2% APR

Just saw an ad for In the fine print that was flashed across the screen I saw that ridiculous APR.

Has anyone else seen the ad? Please tell me that my eyes are deceiving me, after all I was not wearing my glasses. I am afraid to even go to the website and see for myself.

Is that APR even legal?

New discovery at the supermarket

Uncle Ben's Ready Rice.....loves it. It is probably more expensive than just buying regular rice, but I have not looked at the price. It is perfect for a single girl like who does not like to cook.

Why do you work a second job???

That is the million dollar question I keep getting asked. It is to the point now where the question is annoying. Why would someone work a second job? Duh!!! to make more let it rest people. These are the same people in my circle who complain about lack of funds. Go figure!!

When the air gets hot...

the shoppers go shopping. What is it about the hot weather that makes people go crazy. Sales at the part-time gig have increased with the rising temperature. Interesting!!
