2010 Goals Tracking - October End

These are my goals for 2010.
1)Continue learning new dishes to cook. One new dish per week.
2)Continue to be on budget.
3)Start saving for prepayment of mortgage. 2L should be saved for same.
4)Contribute to retirement as per the plan.
5)Be less obsessive on daily tracking of things.
6)Learn to swim.
7)Improve healthy eating.
8)Earning Rs 50250 (2010*25) extra in 2010

It's October end and technically I should be doing a review of my goals, but I am skipping it for this month. Reason is all the uncertainity in finances (expenses and salary) brought up by our relocation. I will review my October and Novemeber's progress together in November's end.

Multi Level Marketing - MonaVie is another sucker

Not only Amway, there are other such organizations that one should be aware of.
I read this article recently, and couldn't stop posting it. Please go on and read MonaVie Scam's story from one of the reputed blogger, Lazy Man and Money.

Always keep in mind, there is no wealth without hard and smart work. :)

Have a nice day.

Bad service with such reputed names

I always wonder whether it’s only me who is so unfortunate when it comes to public dealing or is it about everyone and I am just more vocal then others?

Recently, I shifted to Hyderabad and decided to use Agarwal Packers and Movers for relocation. I heard lots of good things about them but my experience has been bad in short.

They promised to bring wooden frames for packing stuff like fridge and washing machine but they never got same on packing day. As a result my refrigerator got so many scratches. :(

Also, while packing Gas Stove + empty cylinder, they told me that no need to enter Cylinder separately as it is part of Gas Stove. When I received my stuff, Cylinder is missing now they give me excuses like it is not mentioned in the list. Customer care is not at all helpful.

I would never ever recommend any one to use Agarwal Packers and Movers. They promise big but deliver NILL.

And then our good old LIC. I am jinxed for sure. :(

My DH wanted to get term insurance from LIC, a good principal of PF right. I couldn't find even a single agent ready to do that. Even the online site, PolicyBazaar cheated, took the money, and never gave the policy. Finally, one agent agreed to make a term policy but after the cheque got cleared he forced my DH to first buy a huge ULIP through him and then only he will process term papers. Literal blackmailing.

No wonders I HATE LIC. :(

My personal rants, genuine feedback on the kind of service I receive.
