Lets start with our debt
we paid off $2,479.00 this month!!!
That number also paid off our second to last credit card!
We have a giant chart in our bedroom that lists our debt and goals and such and we are crossing our debts off as we complete them and this month we go to put a giant red line through one of those line items. This means we have 3 left. We started with 6 and while the first 3 were small it still means we are halfway through our line items and that is huge!
The one we are working on now we are shooting to have it paid off by the end of January
and then it is the last 2 big loans which is over half our debt that we have total.
I know it sounds odd but we are so excited to get to that point and start hammering the big loans!
I also want to mention that we cash flowed quite a bit this month.
Halloween costumes for all 3 was $60.00
Pumpkins and candy was $40.00
Baby Gift $50.00
Michael B-day $50.00
Car repairs $400.00
So that is another $800.00 and while our goal is to get out of debt it is also just as important to stay out of debt. Which means we cash flow and budget for everything!
Okay goals from October
Close the pool and get all the outside toys put away
Finish our will
Plan dates for holidays
Trick or Treat as a family
Celebrate Michael's Birthday
The pool was officially closed and most of the outside stuff is put away we left a few things out because we were having a heat wave but now it's cold.
Our will is a lot more complicated than we thought. But I love the discussion it has opened up and we are really getting on the same page.
