Disorganization and clutter are the enemy of debt. Not being able to find something inevitably "forces" you to buy something you already have but can't find.
The frustration of the moment....Microsoft Office.
In Summer 2008, we bought my in-laws a laptop computer as an early Christmas gift, and loaded Microsoft Office on it for them. The disks came with 3 licenses, so we also installed it on our computer at the time. This left 1 more license.
Fast forward to today. We bought the new computer in March, but since I infrequently use Office at home, I haven't installed it. Now I need it....and can I find it????? NOOOOOOO.
G-man and I looked through the closet where we thought it should be.....and it isn't there. This means I put it somewhere "safe" so I could find it when I needed it. Where that is....well....obviously it is SAFE cuz I can't find it!!! I refuse to go buy it until I have exhausted all my resources at home. I know it is somewhere.
There is a free 60-day trial I can download, which will buy me 2 months to find the bloody box with the disk and key code. If I absolutely can't find it...I will HAVE to buy it again.
I tried using Google Docs....and while it is fine for some things....I really do need Word, Excel, and Powerpoint.
Where the heck is it???????
