Debt Update: $2800 left!

Personal finance has made me a little weird.

Here’s what I mean:

Each weekday morning I try to wake up early. I read some blogs, write posts for the day, stalk check up on facebook friends, and meander before I have to get ready. Well, today was no different. As I was sitting on my bed balancing a hot cup of coffee and my netbook, I turned to my online bank account and squealed, nearly dropping my coffee mug on my pretty covers. I was so happy! The reason? My bank account was $1000 less than it was yesterday!!!! It was sooo exciting! (See what I mean? Weird.) But for me that could only mean one thing: my debt and saving checks had gone through. :) :) :)

You’ll see where I saved in tomorrow’s Spending Report (gotta keep those interesting), but here’s the debt paid for this month:

$2,800 left? Psssh. That’s nothing. And who knows? I may be debt free sooner than I think…. ;)

  • Wow – you have made great progress – it really is inspiring. Love the cute header too – a great welcome to the page when I jump out of reader and into your world.

  • Okay, seriously! You are so inspiring! I wish I had someone like you following me around all day making sure I stayed within my budget!

  • That is great! We’re both on the same track to getting rid of our debt at the same time (April) — even the amount is almost the same. I’m rooting for you!

  • Hahaha… you’re such a personal finance dork and I love it. =)

    Great work MMP! I love having all of these inspiring people around me. (By around me I obviously mean on my Google Reader) – I’m so scared for when you all get out of debt and I’ll still have like 7 months to go. Who will inspire me to keep going then? Huh?!

    J/K – I’m SOOOO happy for you and all the progress you’re making!

  • WHATEVER. If I was paying my debt as intense as you were I’d probably be done three months ago missy. You’re doing SO great.

  • This is great! I am on a similar track with $3700 left of debt. I think it will take me longer to pay mine back though (a month or two) as I want to get some savings started. Yes I am late to the game, but I’m going to start getting on track now!

  • BTW are you calculating interest into your payments/ total balance? Just curious because I really want to make a chart like this one!
