get out of debt (read all 9 entries…)
Goal.... get rid of truck debt.

Why am I paying 11% interest on this and only earning .5% interest on my CDs? I love my CDs, love the thought of having savings, but this is just stupid. The truck is currently at $3048. I have $2400 worth of CDs that is free. When the truck is paid down to $2400 I’m going to pay it off from the cds then send the truck payments to my savings account. Besides which, I want to be debt free enough to feel like I can walk away from my job if I want. My car loan is down to $16,100, at 1% interest, at least my payments are doing something. The horse trailer is down to $14K. I still flirt with the idea of trading it in for something with LQ.

$12K, as if.

One of my goals is to save $10K and that just seems impossible! I will say that I managed to save enough to live for 3 months out of work with the baby. Man it was tight at the end though.

Smiles from the baby

I just love when he’s happy and smiles at us.
