Well I did it

February 11th, 2013 at 04:18 am

Well after I posted my last post, I said to hell with it and paid the $300 on CC4 that is my $20 Challenge/debt.

I have approximately 15 days to get another CC paid off, the goal is to pay off 1 CC a month. I actually paid three off last month. So rather than watching the funds in my saving account earn very little interest while the CC racks up a lot more, I decided to knock that card down from $1385 to $1085.

It's scary because you're always thinking of the what ifs, but I have a little more than $5000 in my EF, I am slated to receive another $3000 in taxes that i plan on paying off another $1500 CC and putting the remainder in the EF account. So I should have at least 7 months of expenses if anything happens. The goal is to have at least one year though.

I will say this, it's easy to get into debt but it is hard and scary at the same time getting out.
