I received my $800 payment from my long-term client, paid my tithes of $80 and I have $720 left. I plan on keeping $500 in my checking account and using $200 towards savings and debt.
I always struggle with how much to save, pay towards my snowball but for savings I decided to round up and for debt I decided to round down.
So for today I will be saving or paying the below:
$13.04 car fund
$16.96 baby EF
$15 vacation fund
$50 student loan
I'm so upset that I won't be meeting my June goal of paying off my student loan; however, I have to remember that I came a very long way and by the grace of God I was able to do what I have done. Actually, the goal was to pay it off by December but I was doing so well that I thought jube would be the month.
I think that when I get the settlement check rather than paying the September mortgage and the November HOA, put that money aside. My thinking is I should land a job/contract by then and the money saved I'll just throw it at my student loan. If I don't get a gig well at least I know I have the money.
Seems like saving and paying debt is the story of my life. I can't wait to reach financial freedom. But is that such a thing?
