    Talking Paid off my first bill!!!!

    So, I've been at this budgeting thing for a month and I have REALLY learned some valuable lessons.

    Budgeting showed me where I was allowing over $100 a month fly out of my checking account without me really even realizing it! It's amazing how many PayPal prepaid memberships one forgets.

    I had initially planned to pay off two bills this month, but was hit by more memberships that all wanted to renew themselves in JUNE!!! But I did pay off ONE!!! That's a start!

    Thanks to holding on to a second job, I was able to use the extra income to pay off a debt. I've got a long way to go, but it felt so good to get that PAID IN FULL email notification!!


    Key lessons: Pace myself. The second job is helping, but I'm listening to my body and taking time off the second job when it gets to be too much. I'm also looking for more lucrative second job options.

    Just wanted to share my small victory!!!

    Congratulations. Baby steps to be sure, but keep stepping and you'll eventually be debt free.
