I am moving in with my boyfriend so I have a reason to get rid of things. I have been to Goodwill at least 2 times and will probably make a 3rd trip soon.
I have also donated/made a sacrifice to the Gods of the City by posting FREE on a box of stuff we left in front of the house. It was gone by the time we got back from a hockey game. (There was some good stuff in there like a toaster and hand mixer.)
New strategy is to finish moving in with my boyfriend and then empty one or two boxes a week and really get organized.
I have been trying to pay off about $18+K in credit card debt for the past three years. I have $12K left to go. I am trying not to get discouraged because in the same 3 years I have had $15K in dental work, saved a lot of money in my 401k, and did a $5k emergency repair to my condo when the ceiling collapsed from a water leak. So I’m doing ok, but I want to get this over and done with before January 2010 when the my 2.99% APR balance transfer runs out.
Got permit and got bike. Now I just need to get a full license! I am putting up my bike into storage for the winter very soon, but I am adding this on my list so I make it a priority next spring.
