Ask And You Shall Receive

After signing up for and then freaking out about the Landmark forum fee that needs to be paid by December 8 I wrote a post asking that the money for this fee come in to our lives so we didn't have to put the fee on a credit card that is already close to the limit (definitely goes against our pay the credit cards off plan) or cash out a CD we have.

Some significantly cool things have happened since this post.

First off was finding out I can cash out some stock that is no longer publicly traded. Still waiting for the paperwork to come in the mail.

Secondly, I found out today that a home owners assessment originally due this month is now going to be due in the spring since the people who did the work repaving the parking lot did a terrible job and because of the weather can't fix it until the spring. This also means we will be getting a discount on the repaving and this means our assessment will be even less than expected. So instead of forking out $175 this month that money can now go towards the Landmark Forum fee.

When we signed up almost two weeks ago we paid the deposit ($100 each) with our credit cards and had no idea how we were going to come up with the additional $790. After the hubs get's paid Friday we will have $400 towards the $790 - just a little more than half in two weeks!

The hubs and I were talking tonight and we thought if we could generate this much cash just by thinking positively and being creative, we wonder how quickly we could come up with money for a laptop or something else we want that we would have in the past put on a credit card. We are willing to use our fun money (7% of take home) to get that ball started.
