Made a payment this week of $2,250 on a debt. Feels great to have something else paid off!!
I’m over half way done with paying off my debt from when I initially started in July 2009!
If you’re struggling with debt pay off, don’t give up! Your freedom from debt restraints is worth the effort now!
tax season soon, yay for refund monies.
car was stolen, yay for insurance monies.
house sitting, yay for doggie monies.
and a few friends collectively owe me some monies, should probably get collecting on that soon.
did i use my bonus successfully? did i use it to pay off bills or have a fantastic time with friends.
both. i loved every moment of it. <3
getting closer and closer every pay check to freedom! see ya car payment!!!!
... i’ve officially paid off 2/3 of the debt i had in July 2009 when I first got serious with paying it down! this last third will be a blast to pay off!
over $2300 toward debt in the month of April! wooooooooooooooo!!!
i called my debtors to see if i could get any interest rates reduced, and i was able to reduce some of them!
also, the other day i got a little down because i didn’t feel like i was making as fast as an impact on my debt as i thought i would… then i stopped and realized what i’m doing is still really cool- i haven’t increase debt at all for myself for over ten months now AND i’ve been decreasing it steadily each month, even a little more each month.
also, if i bike to work, i’ll save a lot in gas a month and that could help me pay something off much quicker.
My January goal is to pay $1000 toward debt. So far (and today is the 5th) I’m at $461.99. I’m pretty sure I will definitely be able to make this goal! :) Yay!
Update on 01/26/2010
I’m at $ 894.45 for the month, and have a few anticipated payments totalling over the goal of $1000k.
i made a list of the food i had at home, planned meals to last me the next pay period, bought only the groceries i would need to fix said planned meals.
i spent $48 and i’m happy, normally i would spend almost twice that.
i’m also making it a point to not by any more food until all of this is gone!
i worked with each of my bills and have set up automatic payments for most all of my bills now = less time focusing on paying off debt and more time focusing on life.
