10 no spend days for July

July 24th, 2007 at 07:33 pm

Today was another no spender. I'm two away from my goal of 12 for the month of July! I'm looking to make tomorrow number 11. I've already pre-made food for tomorrow's breakfast, lunch & dinner.

I'm working from 7am to 8 or 9pm tomorrow. They've extended overtime hours in a push to meet our month end numbers. So I'm going to take advantage this week. Since I only worked 3 hours of overtime on Monday (my day off), I wasn't planning on making my 20 hour goal for the week. But now its back on. We'll see what I can get done Smile

Today I extended my hold on my Netflix. Its been on hold since May & it was to restart in August. I went online to cancel, but they gave me to the option to extend the hold until October. Perfect timing. I LOVE to celebrate Halloween by watching lots of cheesy horror movies, most of which my library doesn't carry. Also, I have a week's vacation in October, so I'll have plenty of time to watch movies.

In the meantime, I have several movies on request at the library & I'm keeping a list of new releases that I want to watch, but my library doesn't carry. I'll get to them in October too.

    I was thinking of giving Netflix a 2nd try this fall after having a bad experienc with them once before. Are you saying you can put it on hold (without getting the monthly charge) anytime you want?

    Have you ever had a need to call them? If so, did you get to talk to a live person? The last time i did Netflix, they didn't have a 800 # to call and it was excruciating to try to report a problem on their online forms, which didn't allow for any deivation from standard problems.

    Fern,
    You can definately put Netflix on hold. When you go to cancel, they offer you the option to put it on hold for something like 2 or 3 months. Then its supposed to automatically reactivate & bill you on the assigned date. And, as I found out yesterday, apparently you can extend the hold. The nice thing about the hold is that it saves your queue for you & you can add to it even while on hold. I haven't had any reason to call them, but I did email them once & received a prompt response.

    Thanks, househopeful, that is reassuring as i was feeling kind of leary about it but i had spent so much time way back when building my 'library.' i think i flagged enough movies to watch for the nex5 5 yrs!
