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!
YAY for being Debt FREE! WOOO.
That looks amazing!!!
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!
Kim – For $20/hr I will totally do this for you. ;)
Can’t help but be proud of yourself when you see where you were this time last year eh!
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!
Wow, truly inspiring. I love your little charts- it makes it so much easier to follow and see your progress!
BTW are you calculating interest into your payments/ total balance? Just curious because I really want to make a chart like this one!
