In January we only paid $881 towards reducing our credit card debt balance. That brings today’s total to $23,517. I am pleased that we paid off over $14,000 of our debt and it hasn’t quite been a year yet.
My blog anniversary is coming up, and something I have been trying to do is reach $15,000 of our debt paid off before then. I’m not sure we can do it. I do have some money set aside for home repairs (which the handiman STILL hasn’t called me back about). It’s taking everything I have to resist using that money to pay more of our debt down. Using that money would bring us to that “mini goal.”
Which brings me to a good point – I have lots to update you on. I haven’t been posting that much lately because of work. It was crunch time, and I was working 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. earlier this week. I was pretty tired by the time I got off work. And, I’m an American Idol junkie so I HAD to watch that the past few days 😉
Now that crunch time is over, I should be working “normal” hours again and have some energy left over to write a post. Or, I may have enough of a break time at work to write something.
Part of me feels like my mind is in another place right now and I need to get back on track. I need to keep blogging about my debt. I need to keep chugging along…
