My Amazon Debt is gone!!! I moved the payment date up to today. I couldn’t resist. As of today, my Amazon line of credit is GONE! Paid in full.
Doing a happy dance over here and breathing a deep sigh as I set my sights on my other immediate goals.
New Budget = More Work
I spent a lot of time this weekend working on a new budget since I have voluntarily taken a temporary cut in pay. And I hate to say it, but we cannot maintain our current life without those addition hours or an equal amount of income. I am on the project hunt, applying through Guru.com and reaching out to past and current clients who might have some project work they need done. I know from past experience I can either get really busy this time of year with one off projects or it will be really dry. Please send up a prayer for me.
New Sport = New Expense
Before I say this, I will admit, I am crazy and obsessed with providing my kids with every opportunity. I get enough flack for that, so don’t think you have to tell me too (my attempt to stave off the whiplash I believe will come with this news.) Princess recently tried out for a competitive volleyball team. She made it! This team costs $1000 for the season. The fee includes all uniforms, tournament fees, training and so on. I reached out to her dad for financial assistance, we will see if he comes through.
I have one less monthly debt payment, and I plan to keep it that way – yeah!!!
I have a larger than manageable gap in my budget due to the cut in my regular 1099 hours.
I have a new substantial bill for the next few months ($300 due this week and then $175 monthly for the next 4 months.)
I’ve got my work cut out for me. And I would love some suggestions, specifically regarding making up the income as I really do not see anywhere I can cut in my budget, although I am still evaluating that.
The sorrow and joys of this roller-coaster overwhelm her at times, but she is committed to this course.
Hope plans to dig out of debt using any resource possible including her small business EPOH, her blog and any other resource that comes to mind!
