Here it Goes – Here’s How Much I Make

by

UPDATE: 6/24/06
Projected 2006 – $45,000

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I was reading some blogs and I came across Madame X’s topic about why she believes in revealing her income.

I have to add that I think it is a great what she is doing. At the same time, I can see why other pf bloggers are hesitant so reveal such personal information.

I have eluded to what my family’s income is in a comment I have made within my blog – but I am inspired by her to just put it out there. Why not? It will give you a better picture on my financial position.

Ready?

Projected 2006 – 40,000
2005 – 26,000
2004 – 28,400
2003 – 27,400
2002 – 23,700

I have to say projected because who knows what the future holds. I have worked some overtime lately so it could be higher. Or, I could be laid off tomorrow. But, at this given moment – that is what we are making (both my husband and I work).

So, when I say my mortgage is $337.00 – you can see it isn’t too bad with what we make. We’ve never really considered ourselves poor and we make do with what we have. Now – we both say that we would be rich once our debt is paid off because we would have so much extra a month for other things (about $1300/month). 🙂

It also should be noted that I don’t live in a big city and I live in a fairly rural area. So my cost of living isn’t as high.

So, there is is. I feel a bit naked – so I better get some more clothes on 😛

A Reward for all of my Overtime Lately

by

I’ve been working ALOT lately, and finally I was able to do something with my money towards my debt. I was able to pay $1,000 towards my biggest credit card, credit card #2. It felt so good to complete the transaction.

Unfortunately, I will only be paying off part of the remaining $1200 from a previous balance transfer where the rate was 1.99%. So, I haven’t hit the big chunk subject to 16.9% sitting on that card.

Once I get my tax return completed and receive my refund, I decided that it ALL is going towards credit card #2. I like to refer to that card as the beast that needs to be tamed. And, I have a plan – which I will explain further at a later date when I have more time.

Right now I better get to work.
