Wow I did it!

December 14th, 2011 at 03:29 pm

I am so excited, I officially reached my saving goal today Smile The goal was to save $1000 by December 31st, well I have met and went beyond my goal, yay! Today I added $20 to my challenge which put my balance at $1006.77. I know it's way less than where I want to be but to start in mid November, actually November 14 and exactly one month later, to have saved over $600 in four weeks is amazing. This small little task shows me that I can do anything I put my mind to.
Now it's time to tackle CC 1, the balance on this card is a little more than $600, so I figured I should have this paid off by mid January.

On a different note, yesterday I bought one of three of my BF's Christmas gift, cost $18. This was half of what I expected to spend Big Grin. This weekend I plan on using my ShopKick points to redeem a $10 gift card to purchase a car stereo he wants, cost $49 with out the $10 gift card.

Yesterday the BF went to court and one of the issues with his child support was tossed out. However, the attorney who handled this case advised him to fire the other and consider the money he spent a lost. Wow I've been telling him this for a year, I guess since I don't have a law degree what I say doesn't matter. Long story short he will fire the lazy lawyer.

In the end, I am feeling great about becoming debt free
