What a month!
Now, usually, I’d be pretty upset about falling nearly $10k in the span of 31 days but not today.
I haven’t really set financial goals since, hmmmmm, probably 2008 (which has probably been a HUGE mistake) but back in April of this year, I set a goal of paying off my remaining $11k balance on an auto loan by summer’s end.
On August 7th, I did just that.
So, while my credit card balances are a little out of control and the savings balance is below the $150k I think I’ll need to fully finance the garage project, my auto loan is gone.
That opens up a lot of cash to pay down the loans and bloat the savings in a hurry.
And, on the bright side, had it not been for the market woes at the tail end of the month, I’d have actually had an increase this month.
Pretty good feeling considering that I kinda felt I’d stretched myself a little thin…
