Paid down CC 3

November 28th, 2017 at 01:37 pm

So the checks cleared, super excited.

I deposited $8.50 to the EF
$3.83 to the sinking fund, and then paid $72.68 on CC3, my new balance is $1024.91 😀. The goal is to have the balance below the $1,000 mark by December.

I really think that this will happen, matter of fact I know it will, Thursday is payday, and I've budgeted an extra $67 on the snowball😀.

I really feel like I am making some traction. One of my colleagues wanted to go out for happy hour, I thought hmmm why not but then I said nope. I have $25.50 left in my fun money and I've decreased this amount for the next budget period so I'm not wasting it on dining out when I have leftovers.

I'm trucking along solo. I asked the fiancé if he was ready for the budget meeting last night, I was planning on asking those questions I think Credit Card Free, DW or Out of the Dark had mentioned and he said no. Oh well, he can't say I didn't try and that he wasn't told that I was not marrying him if his and/or my finances weren't in order.

I can say this, when you have a budget, pay your tithes and stick to the plan, the raise you've been wanting and haven't received is no big deal. Things are falling into place and I'm excited. I know I have a little way to go but CC3 will be paid off in January, I can tackle CC4, the house will sell in February and most of the debt should be gone 🙏🏾

    You are making traction! Keep it up!

    As time goes on it will get easier to make wise financial decisions.
    Also, you now see fiancé true colors. He’s on board when he needs something from you, or when he thinks you’re disappointed in him.
    Time will allow you to see everything clearly.

    Amber, you're doing a fabulous job! So proud of you! I know you'll stay strong!

    Amber, and this is coming from a man who spent a lot of his life learning lessons the hard way, thinking he was physically invincible, being the hero at all cost, not matter how careless and assuming every gal he was with was a benefit to her...........THERE IS NO 50/50 in any relationship! IT MUST BE 100/100. If each only put in 50%, it's doomed to fail. Each must put in 100%, only then will you have a fighting chance.

    PS - I am not the same man I was ten years ago. By the Grace of God, I humbled myself, opened myself and try to be a better person today than I was yesterday. Someday's are better than others! But I had to first be willing to put in 100%! OOD
