CC3 under $400

December 30th, 2017 at 05:23 am

I did it, I used the buffer in the checking account and paid $112.67 on CC3 to knock the balance down below the $400 mark, new balance $399.00.

I'll admit I'm nervous about not having the buffer but, I want this card 💳 gone! Over $6,000 💵 in furniture purchased with no help, as promised, to pay for any of it. And now, today, it's just under $400. OMG! I thought I'd never pay this bill off, now it looks as though late January I can say goodbye and good riddance.

Next on the list, is to head over to the grave yard and remove my SO account from mine, I'll even eat the cost if there's one to get his name off. For about eight (8) months when we first purchased I paid, I finally had a breakdown and he started to pay but he's always late. I told him I was not going into the new year with this mess, his mess. I'll be lying 🤥 if I didn't say a part of me feel bad 😔, but it's the right thing to do, other wards, I'll begin to resent him. It's for this best, especially for the move.

Last night we were chatting and I'm not even sure about what and how the subject of money 💰 came up but it did. I said something to him along the lines of, " do you realize that if something was to happen to you, that I couldn't take care of you or me?" He then said, " I could do it." I said, "How? You have no money saved and you pay nothing on time." He then said, "wow talk about putting me down." I felt bad but thought 💭 , why? It's the truth. If he got hurt and couldn't work, there's no way I could take care of both of us. Hell when I wasn't working, I depleted my savings because he couldn't pay the household 🏡 bills by himself let alone my other bills.

It's a tough journey but I have to stay focus.

Instead of saying I want, I'm now saying I will retire at 57. Plus you all do a good job at not sugar coating things, and keeping me accountable.

Good riddance CC3 and plot!

    Amber, you have alot of bad financial skeletons that you are dealing with. You’re doing the right thing by taking corrective action. You have been building a life as if you’re married and you’re not. Who cares if he feels bad, he doesn’t pay his bills. Oops, I said I would not talk about him again. You’re right about forward thinking, if this person became ill and he’s living with you, well ... Stop being his doormat every time you throw truth his way and he gets his feelings hurt. He needs to MAN UP! Begin today untangling your financial lives.

    Good for you! Your emergency fund is your buffer...and you have to do all in your power to protect it for true emergencies. I wouldn't feel bad for him. It is the truth. You are now making rational, math based decisions, not emotional ones. When will you move out?

    Does SO know you’re breaking up with him? Must feel so odd to continue a relationship just because of living arrangements.

    Great progress Amber! Are any of the credit cards in both of your names? If so, is there any chance he can transfer his half to his own credit card and you can remove his name from yours?

    Well the goal is to get dad's house sold in debt February, use that money to pay off debt then move.
    None of the CC is in his name it's just things purchased that I wanted, he wanted and promised to pay but never did. I asked him what time he wanted to meet at the graveyard, he mumbled something but I set the alarm to go off at 2pm.

  6. Amber Says:

    So after everyone's comment. I called the graveyard, thank goodness. Apparently they close early today and the young woman Kim, will contact me with my options. I explained to her the situation, it appears as though it's doable to relinquish one of the plots to my SO.

    Plan B is if I'm unable to transfer to him, I'll keep it and my sister will take over the SO's payments. That in turn will be hers. But hopefully I can just give it up

    Hope it works out and you can just give it up.

    Sometimes you have to say things that aren't popular with someone because they are based on facts or data. From what I've read that you've written, SO is very manipulative and he has known what buttons to push to get you to see things his way in the past; I think now you are thinking rationally, he isn't sure what to do and he's pulling out all the emotional stops. Hang in there!
