Angela's 2010 money challenge
The last 6 months has resulted in quite a change in my lift, in many ways. I got into University to study nursing and also ended up changing jobs, from being an EA for a financial planner, to working as a ward clerk at one of the big nearby hospitals. This change has also resulted in a paycut of $8,500.
As a result, the extra payments on my loan have been put on stand by! Hopefully ill be able to claim my uni fees on as a tax refund which will then be put onto my loan, if not, then it will take a little longer to pay off.
My debt payment goals for this year are:
Personal Loan:To consistantly pay $250-$270 per fortnight off my personal loan and get it under $20k.
Store Finance: Get the store finance under $300 balance.
Credit Card: I have learnt to use the cc as it should be, paying off what i use in reasonable time. I just aim to keep doing this has i have some big things this year and for the next few year, trips to Darwin for uni residential schools, text books etc.
These are not hard or life challanging goals, but simple things to keep me on track and tack unneeded stress out off my life whilst i am studying.
