Checking in

May 9th, 2008 at 07:05 am

It seems I only blog when I'm feeling good about things. Ha!

We just paid off some bills that made it possible to be back down to just one CC again. It seems pathetic that in a whole year's time we've only paid off about $4,000. But we're in a better place now than we were. Then I was so hung up on putting every penny we got into the CC payment that I was leaving nothing in our checking account forcing us to use our CC to buy groceries. Sinced then, I've stopped doing that. It's been about 5 months since we used a credit card at all. We were going through a cycle of having nothing left over at the end of the month, putting Christmas on the card and then starting all over. Now I am putting money aside for Christmas and am not spending every spare penny we have toward the card.

So I am optomistic that this is the year. My plan is to pay off $1000 every month, and little windfalls will help in addition to that. Worst case scenario, I'm hoping for:
May: 15300
June: 14300
July: 13300
August: 12300
September: 11300
October: 10300
November: 9300
December: 8300
January: 7300
February: 6300
March: 5300
April: 4300
May: 3300
June: 2300
July: 1300
August: 300
