Citibank IS going down

So, I'm sitting here making quick updates to my blog (I FINALLY figured out how to add pages, yay) before I head out to spend the morning with my niece and nephew (one of my goals for the month) and I keep seeing that dumb Citibank side bar that I added a bit ago while all excited about watching it quickly fill up. Seriously it's depressing. It looks like I've paid a dollar on that stupid card. But life happens.

We bought a new washer yesterday. It's new, not used or refurbished or anything like that but it was quite the compromise. My husband thought it would be a good idea to buy a top of the line front loading $900 $1100 washer so that "it'd never break again." HA! He wasn't hearing a word about another used one. I said to him, "I'll make a deal with you (and his face lights up) as soon as we pay off ALL of the credit card debt the first thing I'll do is save enough money so that you can buy a brand new top of the line deluxe washer and dryer set, ok!? but for now we're getting something UNDER $400." He laughed and we bought a $400 washer that I talked the guy $100 down on even though it was already marked $100 off. It's sad because even though I haven't a clean article of clothing in this house and we're getting a pretty nice new washer today I'm really bummed about not having $400 to put towards that stupid Citibank card : (

Ok, so the new washer is paid for in full and I can wash all our clothes AND I didn't have to charge a $1000 washing machine like the husband wanted but $400 is GONE. Oh, and I can't use my homemade laundry detergent anymore because we have to use HE now. I'm going to have to figure out what to do with all that detergent making supplies I JUST bought. I mentioned it sadly to the husband and he says, "whip up a few batches, stick it in some old jars, print out a few photos of your face, and sell it to people." Isn't he cute. Is it really crazy that I'm super bummed about not being able to use homemade detergent anymore??? Cause I feel a tiny bit insane on this one.

Anyway I wrote this entire blog just so I could say in type over and over and over again Citibank IS going down, Citibank IS going down, Citibank IS going down... it will, it has to, it's bound to happen.

I'm ready for my Saturday now. Hope everyone has a super sunshiny relaxing day!


  1. I have heard that you can use the homemade soap in an HE if you mix enough for one wash in water and let it dissolve some. Then use it and all is ok. Sure hope this works for you.

  2. I'm totally going to try it, thanks Rita! here goes...

  3. I use my homemade in my HE washer. I just add about two Tablespoons of water to it and I havent had a problem

    good luck
