I had no idea how to create check stubs the proper way, but thankfully I did not have to worry about this for too long. I thought that when my husband asked me to see about making some since he had to hire extra help for a few weeks, that I was going to have to create some of out thin air. I knew that I could do something with our word program, but it was just not something that I was used to using even for other things let alone creating a pay stub for his workers.
I figured the best way to learn how to do this was to find a tutorial on a website, so I went to my favorite search engine and did a search for just that. What I found was so much better though. (more…)

I had been out of school for a couple of months and ever since I have been doing my best to find the sort of job that I am qualified for. However it is not so easy to do that and I was getting pretty frustrated there before I found a job working for a big place in Goose Creek, SC. That is a suburb of Charleston, SC on one of the rivers that feeds into the harbor. Today I was looking at some one bedroom apartments in North Charleston SC. It took some looking around after I narrowed the search down on the internet. I was looking for a few things, most of all I wanted it to be close to where I am working. It needs to be close because if you are the wrong side of the bridge that is a big problem. That is a chokepoint obviously and there are apparently frequent traffic jams.
I also want to be able to work out, but the weather here is going to make that pretty uncomfortable. (more…)

We were finally getting a place to retreat to in the winter. We talked about buying a house in Arizona, but we decided to just rent a luxury apartment instead. We looked around and found Old Town Scottsdale apartments for rent that were really luxurious. The place we rented has ceilings that are 10 feet in height. The bathroom has a deep soaking tub and a separate tiled shower with a glass door. The flooring is wood. The closets are of the walk-in style. It is extremely nice.
We wanted a place where we had nice community amenities on the property as well. They have garage parking, a really nice gym and there is a resort-style pool. They also have outdoor fireplaces and gaming. It is nice to be able to relax and enjoy yourself without having to go anywhere. The private balcony off of the master bedroom is also a very nice feature that we enjoy. We got a lot more in the way of nice things at the apartment than we could by getting a house in the area. I really enjoyed the pool and spa. (more…)

I have quite a bit of copper that is sitting in a pile behind my house, and I am in a bit of a tight spot when it comes to money. I have plenty of money in stocks, and other investments, assets, but not nearly as much liquid funds as I would like at the moment. Something came up and I am going to need some money quickly so I need to figure out the current price of copper per pound to see if it is high enough right now for me to feel justified in using the copper piping that I have to pay for this unexpected expense.
I am not sure exactly how much copper I have, but it is quite a bit of it. (more…)
