Student Loans and the Need to Get Back on Track

November 30th, 2023 at 11:41 am

Today's payment for my student loan was $386.10, falling just $201 short of dipping below the $30k balance mark. It's alright – I'm determined to keep pushing forward.

Admittedly, I've veered off the financial path lately and need to regain control before things get messy. While I can't pinpoint my triggers precisely, exhaustion seems to play a role, and wants take over.

Considering this, I'm contemplating incorporating a monthly budgeted splurge to prevent such lapses in the future.

    A monthly budgeted splurge sounds wise. And exhaustion playing a role also sounds right.

    I know that, for myself, it's the combination of exhaustion PLUS going on social media and exposing myself to ads plus being on too many mailing lists that offer special promotions that can put my spending off track.
