Well here comes the end of month. I have been successful in posting here three months in a row… Ha! That in itself is an accomplishment! So how did August end? My goal was met although it was a little past the time frame I hoped for. All in all I feel I had a successful month as the extra loan is paid off and somehow I managed to not use my credit card although I’m not quite sure how. Again I have a credit card I just never really use it, although a couple of times this month I felt as though I may not have a choice.
I have $150 in my checking and $150 in my savings.. I officially owe less than 20k on my car $18,911.00 to be exact. I still have a few medical bills to still pay, and I am still trying to come up with ways to make extra money.
In all feeling positive as this next month I will be able to allocate the $120.00 loan to medical bills so I may continue on my car loan quest. I hope to find out by end of month how much insurance money I will get to repair my roof.
So where does all of the above leave me for the month?? Feeling broke as hell but very relieved I have one less payment monthly and knowing with a little more discipline I will succeed in getting out of debt and on my way to early retirement!!
- Reduce Spending further
- Cancel my cable (Although I have the very basic cable you can get)
- Find more things to sell or find something to generate more income
- Research more frugal ways to live (I don’t think I have done very well in the department)
