Quick UpdatePosted: October 4, 2011
I haven’t posted in a while. I’ve violated my original goal of a post a week. I won’t list the excuses because who wants to hear that garble!
The latest news is that we’ve paid off 90% of our debt! The guitar I sold netted $3,500 which was applied to the snowball “toot sweet”. We have$6.4k left on credit card debt. Boy does THAT feel good!
Our monthly snowball amount is $800 so that would be 8+ months of continued payments but my annual bonus is delivered in February and that will polish off the remaining portion like the Cookie Monster attending Thanksgiving Dinner at the Keebler Elves’ House. I dunno…that’s what came to mind.
Here’s some current thoughts around our Total Money Makeover Journey.
- This is still basic work…doing the budget, tracking the spending, adjusting the budget when life happens. But it’s completely worth it!
- This is about changing behavior. And once we are debt free we won’t go back to the previous behavior. That’s why this program works.
- I’m thankful that I have a good paying job to make this happen.
- We are truly blessed.
