For me, it’s to go with my first instinct and to do it quickly.
Right now, my top priority is my credit card debt.
I’ve got a lot of it again and it’s weighing me down.
Anyway, a long overdue invoice came in on Friday.
As it was for something I billed back in October of 2010, I wasn’t really counting on ever receiving payment anymore but since it was a $6k bill, well, I hadn’t forgotton about it either.
My first reaction to seeing the check was, “Wow — I can’t believe they actually paid… FINALLY.”
And then I started to think about how perhaps I’d just sold those I-Bonds for nothing.
But then I thought about how much of a dent I could put in my credit card balances on top of all of the money from the I-bond sell-off.
Holy 5-figures, Batman!
But I did nothing.
Instead, I sat around and waited for Hurricane Irene to arrive… and started to think about all to cool stuff I could afford to buy…
And just as I was about to buy something stupid online this afternoon, I kicked it into reverse and instead scheduled a $6000 credit card payment for tomorrow.
