Grocery Shopping Online

May 30th, 2005 at 06:23 pm

Spent a large part of today getting up to date with all my monthly errands, collecting mail, library (got the books back without a fine for a change :winkSmile etc.
Don't know yet how much I spent but I think it was within the budget.
Didn't get into my sewing room either.
About 2 years I bought a PDA which I never used because I ended up staying with my old one with a keyboard. So today I listed it for sale as well as the car seat - hopefully I will be able to get about $300 for both which I will then put back into my cc.
Decided to try internet shopping for my groceries today - thought that if I couldn't walk up and down every aisle I would spent less. The delivery charge was $12 - bought exactly what I needed and specified a time at the end of the day for the delivery. Well they were late - so I got the delivery for free and I didn't buy anything that I didn't "need" Biggrin. So I saved time, gas and the delivery fee.
Will update again tomorrow I am exhausted - see you then

    Hi...sorry for the delay getting back to you. I haven't been on the computer all weekend! Where to start? I guess the most important thing is to let you know that I'm not the one who is pregnant! I have been blessed with a daughter (6 1/2) and a son (4 1/2), and I think that's about all I can handle. Nobody told me I needed patience to be a mom!

    As for the abbreviations, I'm still learning them myself...it takes awhile! DD=dear daughter, DH=dear husband, DS=dear son, kwim=know what I mean. ING is an internet bank (www.ing.com) that has great customer service and a competitive savings rate, with no minimum balance required. The great thing about them is that if you open an account with a link from an existing customer, you get $25 and they get $10. So alot of people (including myself) have taken advantage of this.

    Finally, a heloc=home equity line of credit. Basically, if you have equity in your house you can get a line of credit. You get access to a set amount of money, at a variable interest rate, and you can use it kind of like a checking account for whatever you'd like. As long as you don't tap into the funds, there is no cost to you other than a small annual fee. Once you dip into it, they charge you interest on whatever your outstanding balance is. Lines of credit have been very popular in the U.S. over the last few years, because interest rates have been extremely low (mine started at 3.49%, and is adjusted quarterly based on the prime rate. It's now at about 5.5%), the interest is tax-deductible for most people, and it's very flexible, because you can take as much or as little as you need, and have anywhere from 10-30 years to pay the principle back. I opened mine to make an improvement on our house, though others use them to consolidate credit card debt (much lower rate), or pay for their kids'
    college education, etc. Hope this helps!
