Update Thursday: 1st Week of May

This was a decent week – if we can keep on top of everything else going on in our lives, we should still make our goals…

Start of the Month:




Total Paid Off:




Left to Pay Off for Goal:


Fortunately, a little extra income came in from my wife’s dwindling job, helping us get a good jump start on the month.  We only have 3 more weeks, and I’ve got less than $130 allocated, so we still have a ways to go, but, with her income, we should be able to get close or possibly even beat that goal.  Getting the total balance below $4,000 will put us back where we were the 2nd week of December, except that we now have a paid off truck in the mix.

One of the disgusting things about this is that our interest charges for the month on the two cards were over $32, which totals the amount of interest I was paying on the truck, which had almost twice the balance!

I’m very motivated to getting that balance down, especially since I could pay for a MUCH nicer internet connection or over half of a fiber TV package w/ DVR for that price…  youch!

    Congrats on blogging away your debt. I can see you have a big goal ahead of you, but I know that you can accomplish your May goals for sure. One small step at a time, right?
