Advent Fin Calendar Day 6 – A Bill?

Advent Financial Calendar Box Day 6

Today we open the box on our Advent Financial Calendar and find a Credit Card bill with a very large total and interest charges.

That’s a nasty thing to find in an Advent Calendar, but if you plan on overspending at Christmas (no one does, but it happens) and think you can let it slide because you have a “low-interest” credit card, think again. Once you start a rotating debt strategy, resolving it is never easy.

Advent and Christmas are for celebrating life and enjoying family and friends, not for putting yourself into debt or worse. Money may not buy happiness but Debt sure doesn’t either.

Given the two running themes this week have been the leaky plumbing in my house and Advent this should make for a very interesting set of Random Thoughts for the week.

Plumbing for the Week

For those who believe this whole thematic premise was a clever writing trick, I give you the hole in my ceiling!

Leaky Pipes

No they are not leaking now, but just to show I am a blogger of integrity and I don’t just make this stuff up. I note Michael James attempted to steal my thematic concept with his post Enbridge TAPS Program Mishap, very cheap, go strong to the hoop, or don’t go at all!

Random Thoughts – Leaky Pipes Edition

This week there were some fascinating posts. Here are but a few:

  • The Canadian Capitalist updated us on the Sleepy Mini-Portfolio, which I am using in one of my investment vehicles. Very useful for lazy investors like me.
  • Michael James seems to have lost his interest in graphs and has come over to the Dark Side of financial blogging (the Jerry Seinfeld viewpoint), where he asks, Is Half Price Meat Safe ?
  • My Money Blog added in the Dilbert One Page Guide to Everything Financial , very entertaining, no mention of half-price meat though.
  • Larry MacDonald points out the Best Time to Invest is Now, if you have the money.

Random Thoughts 2008

Feel Free to Comment

  1. I view any article that talks about “Sex for Entertainment” as implying if not shouting, “AND USE CONTRACEPTION FOR THE LOVE OF SAINT NICHOLAS!!!”. Sex is fun, and more fun when procreation is not an issue.

    Speaking as a Failed Vasectomy person, all contraception has risks, but use it anyhow!!!

  2. That hole looks very familiar – my basement was full of them. Now I’m broke, but there are no holes. Strange flip of the situation. Self-flagellation aside (man, that’s such an awesome word), I’m glad I will have my basement. Hopefully having the office will allow me to earn more and pay it off quicker. Thanks for the mention!
