Extra Paycheck

October 24th, 2014 at 02:16 pm

Well unfortunately I didn't put a dime of our extra paycheck for savings. Frown

All the recent unexpected expenses were more important at this point. So I just used it to pay down the credit card.

The good news is that I was able to knock out most of the things I listed earlier in the week.

1.) Payment to neighbor for baling my hay. Free
2.) 4 new tires ($300ish)Bought
3.) Repair our furnace which isn't working. (??)
4.) Finish horse shed Most materials purchased
5.) VERY LAST school bill is due Paid

Grandpa who I bought the Neon from felt bad that the tires went bad so quickly. So he purchased my new tires for me, and he says to pay him back whenever. Hoping to pay him in 2 weeks or so.

So in total I have $200 on the credit card not due until December. I will owe $300 to grandpa. I need about $100 to completely finish the horse shed. And I'm hoping the furnace repair is under $100.

$700 will take care of all of it. Sigh. That seems like a lot. One of the goat buyers who was suppose to pick up their goats this month called and wants to wait until Feb now. Gah. Haven't decided if I will cancel their order and resell the goats (I have a very very long waiting list.) Or just charge them extra to feed the goats over the winter. I was really hoping for that extra $500 this month, which would have nearly knocked out my debts.

    I think you should re-sell the goats. You will continue to put time, effort, and feed, possibly even veterinary services into goats that should already be gone? You are a busy person and you could do other things with your time. No, send the goats on to someone else on the waiting list, who can take and pay now.

    Normally I would agree. But they bought goats from my mother also. (We share our herd) And they have 8 reserved! That is quite a few. I hate to lose such a big customer.

    Also. We have already been holding them for a year.

    I tend to agree with Joan, you shouldn't be holding goats longer when you have a waiting list. They are only a customer if they pay you!! I would give them one week to purchase, let them know you have a waiting list and then if they don't show up and pay, it is on to the next person.

    I hope this 'client' whose goat you've been nurturing for the past year causes changes your system. What is your policy for warranty ? I suggest perspective clients pay a Non Refundable fee to 'hold' a goat until release date; balance due by the end of that week. At that point you can make specific arrangements to 'board' the goat[s] for a daily fee to buyer/seller convenience.

    If the buyer doesn't follow-up by agreed date, seller is free to re-sell. This is typical for puppies and I don't see why it can't apply to goats.
