Sorry, it’s been a few days since I last posted — smurf berry harvest going on right now, you know…
Anyway, now nearly mid-way through the month of August, it’s looking like I’m back on track with my debt repayment plans.
Credit card balances are falling fast again and I’m keeping spending to a minimum. The dentist bill that I mentioned last month turned out to be about half of what I expected and, for whatever reason, all of our utilities bills were down too. Woo-hoo!
The only thing jeopardizing a month headed in the right direction is the rollercoastering stock market. Up $1k one day, down $2k the next. And so it goes.
A co-worker also made me aware that August happens to be a three pay check month as well. Not sure that has much of an effect on my budget, it never has in the past, but it will allow me to get a month ahead on the mortgage again… and that’s a source of comfort for me.
