Quick update for the holidays

December 11th, 2008 at 11:22 am

We were able to set aside cash for all of our holiday shopping (including our anniversary, daughter's 18th birthday and Christmas) and pay off a small chunk on both cards with balances. It's nice to know that we're going to get through holiday shopping without racking up any new debt. I don't think we've paid off as much on the cards as I had hoped to this point but I can say we're teetering on the edge of getting under $60k (which in 7 months and starting at $110k is fine with me!)

Happy holidays...and here is the update:

Debt Tracker (12/11/08)
Card 1: $41231.69 (8.99)
Card 2: $20100.23 (8.99)
Total: $61331.92

Being $100.23 from under $20k on Card 2 and $1331.92 from under $60k altogether is driving me CRAZY! I've been trying to find things to sell in my head just as I type this so it does certainly help my motivation! Soon...and once we push through the holidays into January we should really be able to get back on track!
