I had high hopes for the end of August. I was hoping to be able to break the $20,000 mark again with our debt. It wasn’t meant to be. It would have been possible if September wasn’t a horrible month for expenses (which I momentarily forgot about back then when I was more hopeful): estimated income taxes, a medical bill (which finally came in the mail!), life insurance bills for my husband and myself and our AAA insurance renewal.
Adding all that up comes to almost $900. Oh my…that’s the first time I added all of those up. No wonder I feel like we are spinning our wheels when it comes to our debt. Thank goodness for the garage sale money!
I paid a few regular credit bills a little bit early and then I paid an extra $50 to my Propser Loan to put the balance under $1,000. That leaves our credit card debt total at $20,216. Only $216 away!
It looks like I will have to be patient and wait until next month to be able to hit this next milestone. I’m not sure I have to say it, but I want to hit that milestone like you wouldn’t believe.
