No, he's not in the doghouse. I start the clothes to washing and he moves them to the dryer and folds and puts away as part of his daily chores that come along with still living at home. He also does dishes on his nights off and every morning puts away the dried dishes from the night before. He's 22. For those of you just tuning in he also pays a small Room & Board stipend to the First National Bank of Mom Frugalis.

I am feeling some better. Yesterday I was dressed to shoes, with makeup done and everything and think I'll be able to get to the same level of alertness today. I do like the newish mucus relieving medication - sorry, this is gross, but it does thin the gunk so you can rid yourself of it. 3 Thumbs Up! Uhhh, yeah, well, I didn't say it doesn't make you loopy! So....ummm yeah, Two Thumbs Up!

Yesterday I was feeling so much better that I got about 10 items listed on ebay. And woke up this morning to see that one of Hubster's computer peripheals did sell and he's busy packing it up now for shipping tomorrow. It was one of four sets he had bought for resale, so at least he's on his way to paying back the CC.

And a few of the things he had listed on Craigslist have sold as well. YEAH HUBSTER. My deal with this is not that we don't have room, but that technology moves at such a fast pace that it's better to move it along while it is still viable!

FrugalSon is down with this creeping-crud now. CashHappySon came by to pick up his **OMG $968 OMG** cell phone bill & several letters from the bank on overdraft charges!! Did I say OMG? O.M.G.!!!

The boychild is one stubborn kiddo and will only learn his lessons the hard way. Of course the cell phone company cut your phone off! What the holy-heck do you do to rack up a $968 phone bill???????

Yesterday was a No Spend Day!

    Wow, that's a wicked crazy cell phone bill!!! Hopefully he learns from this one and won't have a massive one like that again. Glad you are feeling better, even if you are a little loopy. Smile

    On that cell phone bill. I blame the companies. They should be helping people to get reasonable plans. Once when we moved, we had to switch companies. Husband and I went in and very, very carefully selected a plan. Our first bill was $700. We went in and complained. We had never paid over $100 with our old company. They claimed that they couldn't do anything about the bill, but said that we had the wrong plan based on the bill. We got on a new plan, used our phones carefully, and the next month it was $500. We paid the $200 cancellation fee and got the heck out of there. Ever since then, we pay less than $100 a month. (It was MUCH lower at first, but we've since added 3 lines for kids... so about $92/mo for 5 lines.

    The company that ripped us off was Nextel. The one we have a good deal with is ATT.

    I know your boy has some issues, but you're right. No one should pay that much!

    Lux, I'm right with you. Finally took a Mucinex DM myself this morning. Ugh I have no energy and I have to do laundry!!

    Cute pic, I saw this and laughed. Your son's cell phone bill is outrageous but he will learn the hard way

    One day your son will get the idea! If it is texting that ran his bill up, he needs to look for a company that offers unlimited text. We looked at my sons texting on the last bill....he sent/received almost 30,000(no that isn't a typo!) texts. If we had had to pay for them, the bill would have been $3000!!!

    I must have skipped a few words but when I read about the laundry I first thought it was the dog doing the laundry, like the picture! Oh, my. Hope my cold goes away soon.
