Not Impressed With Our Debt -Weeks 18 -21

I survived the holiday baking season. The only thing I can say without going into details is that it was awful by the end and I am so glad it’s over! Terrible to say that isn’t it? During that time though I am happy to report a very good thing and very bummed to reportContinue reading “Not Impressed With Our Debt -Weeks 18 -21”

Week 14 of 80 – Not Impressed With Our Debt – October 2018 Results

October has been a much more productive month in terms of paying down our debt. In September we had to pay our school taxes and when you are living paycheck to paycheck saving for them is tough.

Ladies, has your husband or significant other ever packed your things for a trip?

Week 11 of 80 – Not Impressed with our Debt – Monthly Payment Schedule

You may wonder if we use a written budget to stay on track with our debt.

Week 9 of 80 – Not impressed With Our Debt – September the Results

I knew September would be a difficult month for getting any extra debt paid off because our school taxes were due.

Our Old Navy balance startedContinue reading “Week 9 of 80 – Not impressed With Our Debt – September the Results”

Week 8 of 80 – Not Impressed With Our Debt -Testing Our Resolve

I wanted to give up many times this week. So many things have come up and have tested my resolve about paying off our debt, but we have pushed past those feelings of doubt for now.

Week 7 of 80 – Not Impressed With Our Debt – September Dinners – Meal Planning

Already in September life in the bakery department has been brutal.

Week 6 of 80 – Not Impressed with our Debt – Read your Mail

If you are like me, going through your mail is pretty boring. Not much to look at. Mostly advertisements and credit card offers and bills. One day I actually decided to read all of my mail.
