Not Impressed with our Debt – Week #33 of 80 – Paying off the Home Equity Status

Home Equity Loans can be wonderful things if you are doing a major project on your home, like renovating your kitchen.

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?

Not Impressed With Our Debt – Week 16 & 17 – Take Care of Yourself

The last two weeks have been eye opening for me. If you have not suffered from anxiety, panic attacks and/or had large amounts of stress in your life consider yourself lucky.

Week 15 of 80 – Not Impressed With Our Debt – Buying on Autopilot

As we get older we tend to get more forgetful they say. I say we are just getting more and more distracted by stuff around us. We women especially have so many things going through our brains that we tend to do things on autopilot. Am I right ladies? A great example of this autopilotContinue reading “Week 15 of 80 – Not Impressed With Our Debt – Buying on Autopilot”

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.

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. I have tried many things over the years and while a written budget with fancy spreadsheets or instant calculation apps are exciting at first, they lose their excitement for me after a few weeks. The only thing that hasContinue reading “Week 11 of 80 – Not Impressed with our Debt – Monthly Payment Schedule”

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.
