It’s been several weeks since I’ve posted an actual update, but for those of you looking at the bar graphs on the side, you’ll notice that there’s been little change in January.
However, there is more to the story than just the charts… I have over $5k socked away in my checking account, I’m just keeping it there for the house closing and the moving expenses that will inevitably come up during that process. We’ve already had a few expenses this month that would have slowed our progress anyway, coupled with the fact that my wife’s income has slowed a bit due to the weather and holidays this month. We still have enough in the bank that I could completely wipe out the credit card – I’m just waiting for a few things to happen before I aggressively pay it down.
Still, month-to-date, I’ve paid nearly $400 off the credit card, and plan on putting at least that much against it each month, still getting it paid off by the time the baby comes.
