    I think Karma hates me

    Every time I find a way to make some extra money for the wedding, something comes up. The latest being that my car was broken into while parked in my apartment's parkade. The F#$kers stole my radio, USB, some CDs, change and the tools from my little tool kit they used to remove the radio. I had just picked up a dog-sitting job and now all that money has gone to fixing the window, not the Honeymoon pot like I wanted!!! Not even that, the window cost more then I was paid, so I am further behind.

    Am I the only one who feels this way?? I am almost paranoid about making extra $$ now.

      sorry your having such a bad run

      It seems so unfair, especially since you should be happy about your new job.

      Your behind for now, but the job is still going so it wont take you long to get back on top.

      Every little crappy thing now will make you appreciate your wedding and honeymoon that little bit more...

        I know I feel like we have been trying to not go out to save money but it seems like even when we are trying not to spend so much we end up spending more. Good luck!

          i feel exactly the same.me and fi had conversation last night.we have something to pay for each month from now until january never mind spending money.

          on top of that my fi is self employed and theres not much work around at the mo.

          but we are still being positive things have a way of sorting their selves out and at the end of it we will be having the best day/holiday of our lives.

          come on girl be positive

            OMG I really feel you on this one. but my FI and I have done it to ourselves alotta the time. Over the course of our engagement I've moved in with him seemed like a great way to save. He also let me quit my parttime job (i made alotta $$ but hated the job)... No joke the week after i quit my job we decided to purchase a timeshare... We went for a timeshare mtg for the weekend. On the ride home from getting the timeshare our Bestman called my fi and told him that they had lost their parttime jobs. We went from 4 jobs to 2 jobs in 1 week. Then my car needed to be fixed (big $$ but we couldn't afford a new one so) we got a pitbull which was sick and a costly investment but we love her, pipes burst in the house umm what else oh yea my fi came up with a new expensive hobby like every other month, he needed a new bass guitar (parttime work so mandatory) he needed a new laptop (he's a systems engineer so mandatory) omg soo much stuff has happened to us since we've been planning this wedding that we have to dip into his investments to pay for the wedding.... We really didn't want to have to do that but we really are sticking with our goal of no wedding debt (ie cc bills) after the wedding. We are paying all cash!!!

              I completely feel your pain!!!!! Same stuff has been happening to us- new (expensive) tires needed for FI car, my car registration is up, we're moving (to save $$) but we need to come up with deposit, first and last mth rent (I know, $$ in the bank- but STILL!) we're traveling home (Denver) for both holidays.... and don't even get me started on Christmas presents!! If it were up to me, I would give everyone a nice card and explain that we are saving for the wedding (that we are paying for ourselves). My family would be totally cool with it, but the gift thing is a really big deal at my FI's family.... so yeah. I wish us ALL the best of luck!!!!

                OH, but I wanted to add-- agreeing so much with Shellk--- things always seem to work out for the best. Don't stress over the things you cannot change-- just press forward!

                  I feel like I'm spending money on everything right now as well! Don't stress though - it only makes it worse.

                    Ladies I thought I was the only one, everytime I get ahead I find myself having 2 take 2 steps back. Some days I want 2 give up.I want our DW more than anything so I have to try and stay focused.
