I made one last minimum payment towards our credit cards today and that brings our credit card debt total to $22,192 for the end of February. I will not be paying any extra towards our debt for a while because it was decided that we should start agressively saving for a few months.
I have been holding onto some money in our checking account for some home repair. I have been having a horrible time getting a hold of the handiman that agreed to do the work so I have given up until the weather warms up. This weekend I took that money and put it into a savings account. I also took what I could from our checking account and shifted that over. If the money isn’t in our checking account, we are less likely to use it. With moving funds around, that brings our savings total to $1,122.
Basically, my husband’s temporary job is the major reason we are still able to pay large amounts to our debt and savings. While the length of the job has been extended, I am not sure exactly how long it will last. As a result, I am feeling rushed. I feel like we have to pay off as much as we can and save as much as we can ASAP.
Living on borrowed time. That’s how I feel right now. I don’t like this feeling, and I look forward to the day where the worry is no longer there. I know we will be at that point sometime in our lives, but of course I am human and I’d like that point to be right now.
Then again, I’ve been thinking about it and I’m not sure if I will ever be to the point where I no longer worry about money. Does that point exist???
