Not Impressed with our Debt – October Update

Well, I really don’t have much good news for October. It feels like it was a total bust. For some reason I just couldn’t keep a positive balance in our checking account for the second week of October and I had to keep taking from my saved paycheck. On top of that my husband’s car was on the fritz for almost three weeks and cost us $698 to fix. The only good news is that I didn’t have to use the credit card for that expenditure, I just paid in cash but that also meant that I couldn’t pay what I wanted on the credit card.

I can tell November is also going to be a challenge. We have to have three windows replaced (they are actually broken) in our home to the tune of $1700 so all of my paychecks will be going to that and we have one yearly bill for a car insurance policy due next week for $271.

But again, I should be able to pay for these things without using the credit card so that is a blessing right?

We are still holding steady at about $3100 on the credit card I am trying to pay off. That’s all I’ve got to report.

Till next month! -MM

One Hundred Dollars a Month

I am your typical housewife living in high maintenance suburbia. I have a handsome husband, 2 kids and a flock of pet chickens. I try and feed my family with $100 a month. With the help of coupons, gardening and bartering I am able to squeeze the most out of our grocery budget and still manage to have a little fun along the way.
