Welcome to Barefoot Dokusha! Here you will find reviews of the books that I have been reading - a variety of genres, but mostly YA, places I have been, and deals that can be found.

I enjoy sharing things I find with others, and hope that you enjoy them too!

Something to look forward do

I budget my paychecks to see what has to be paid, what I have to work with. I have been counting down to getting my car paid off. I really excited! If I budgeted right, I will have it paid off on the 2nd of August!

Now it's not the best car, I will start getting everything fixed once I get it paid off. It does get me to and from work, and that's what I want. I don't plan on getting a new one. I am going to enjoy not having payments. It will be mine. All mine. 

November 2011 my car quit. I bought a 91 or 93 Toyota Camry. The ugliest car I had ever owned. I bought it for $200. It was a good car. I didn't care that it was ugly. It was mine, paid for. There had been an oil leak. It was slow. I had forgotten to check it for 2 weeks. I was on the interstate when the knocking started. Needless to say, I didn't have the money to fix it. I was only working part time, at that time. A friend of mine, who happened to be my neighbor, would give me a ride to work when she went into work, and would pick me up when she was done. My job at the time was flexible enough with my schedule it worked out pretty good. This went on for 3 months. In February 2012 I had a little bit saved up and started looking to where I could get a new car. My credit sucks, and have a low down payment  Only places I could get a car at is a "buy here, pay here" place. I found one car lot in town that worked with me to get me into a car. That car is my 2005 Chevy Classic (Malibu). It was great that they worked with me and got me into something that day instead of waiting another week for my next check. I had also been putting in job apps at the time to find full-time work. Would definitely need my own vehicle to work 2 jobs. The same day I got my car, I also accepted a position as front desk at a hotel (not the hotel I am at now). I did it backwards and accepted the position before I knew for sure I was getting the car. It all worked out in the end. 

In 2 weeks I hope to post the good news that the car is paid off!
