CC vs Challenge

December 28th, 2007 at 01:44 am

I know I should be paying the cc with any extra cash I get but I feel obligated to add to the challenge, so I added $50 and paid $49 on the cc (I got paid from my part-time job today).
I decided that after the first of the year my entire check from my part-time job will be added to the challenge. I think it is best to go back to living on one check
I rerally need at least a total of $24k by November 2008 ($14k for a dowpayment and $10k for an EF). See I plan on gradating in December and would like to buy a townhouse as a graduation present

In the end new total for challenge is $7100.10 and CC debt $2981.93

    Amber - How are your interest rates on the CCs? The reason I ask is that I wonder, if the rates are high, if it might not be a good idea to pay down the CCs before saving more for the house. It would mean a short-term setback for your house down payment money, but long-term it could mean MORE for the house because you would no longer be paying interest and could put so much more toward the house savings.

    I think you are doing great!!!

    You are absolutely right SCFR
