The financial stars aligned again this week with a few different checks arriving from my husband’s side jobs. I love it when it happens like this because I can send a huge chunk of cash towards our debt. While I don’t mind chipping away at our debt, nothing quite gets my blood flowing like making those big payments.
For one, it really shows how much money we aren’t spending. We are doing something right to have that much money as “extra” money. Secondly, I can give a “take that!” to my credit card. That always feels a little good.
I’m happy to report that we have broken down below the $14,000 mark. Our credit card debt is now at $13,699.
It’s hard to describe how I feel right now. I think one of my favorite quotes helps to sum it up:
“What this power is, I cannot say. All I know is that it exists, and it becomes available only when you are in that state of mind in which you know exactly what you want, and are fully determined not to quit until you get it.”
– Alexander Graham Bell
I’m in that state of mind. I want our credit card debt paid off!
