  1. been a while

    by , 05-10-2010 at 01:24 AM
    Wow, I just looked through my blog posts and realized how far behind I have become in posting to myself.

    We only have $500 left to pay on our last credit card then all that money is going to the car payment. Well most of it anyways. Our car insurance went up $15/payday so that will have to come out of what we were paying extra. grrrrr. I hate it when plans hit a snag, even a small one. Can't be helped. Need to go work on my budget.

    Had a fair weekend at the auctions. We made about $1100 after fees. Of course all of it goes on the cc. I really want to get rid of the cc. I think we will hold onto it until our emergency fund is at the same amount of the maximum limit amount. That way we have the cash to use in place of the credit card if we have a major expensive emergency.

    When I look at the total amount we have in debt, sometimes it just feels so overwhelming. I know we will be able to pay it off very quickly ...

    We had an amazing weekend on ebay. We made $2076.22 after all the fees came out. We also made $140 on silver locally. That means that the LOC is paid in full and the rest of it will go on the CC#2. We are so close to paying off bills. Yeah! Got another round of coins put up on ebay.

    CC #1: $1780/$1780 Paid in Full 3/31/2010
    LOC: $5000/$5000 Paid in Full 4/11/2010
    CC #2: $1500/$5355 (Balance $3855)
    Car loan: $1135/$15,503 (Balance $14268)

    Well, today we made $1343.11 on auctions. That should bring our balance on the LOC down to about $1000. Making huge leaps and bounds on the bills. Can't wait to be debt free.
  5. My journey to being debt free

    by , 04-02-2010 at 03:16 AM
    This is really just for me so I can look back and see my progress and my ups and downs. I guess a kind of jounal I can use when I have a tough time and need a pick me up.

    While I was out delivering census forms I found a house that I think we would love to buy that is in our dream location. I showed to house to my husband and he agrees that it would be great to own. This was the catalyst to really get us going. So our journey begins into becoming debt free. We have decided that the ...
