Where to Begin...it is hard to believe that it has been 8 years since I started this Blog. You guys have always been here supporting me and cheering me on.
I recently took out a LOC against my house and paid off all of my credit card/loan debt. Everything on my credit report has been paid off. I now have one payment a month. But I am making 2 payments of $250, which is about $300 toward principle.
In about 3-6 months we are going to try to refinance the loan in just my name(My mom is a co-signer right now). UPDATE: I REFINANCED THE LOAN IN JUST MY NAME.
My budget is still in place for 2 months out, but I am constantly having to adjust it. But everything still gets covered.
I am still working my part time job early in the mornings and on weekends. I don't mind getting up early(4:00) but I hate going to bed so early. I sure enjoy that paycheck though. I am putting 35% of that check into their 401k. i will slowly raise that up to 50%. UPDATE: I HAVE GIVEN MY NOTICE FOR THE END OF SEPTEMBER. I JUST CAN'T DO 2 JOBS ANYMORE.
Oh....forgot to mention that I already have tomorrow night's dinner planned...grilled cheese and tomato soup. It has really helped me this week to plan the meals the night before and get everything out...then there are no last minute surprises...where I think I have everything I need and then realize I don't have it when I go to make it. Then I have to scramble to come up with something at the last minute!
Good for you! Tonight we had baked chicken, boiled potatoes, stuffing, corn and ice cream. The chicken didn't go over too well with the husband and my youngest is a vegetarian so...but my oldest daughter liked it and so did I! Needless to say, I will be feeding my aides tonight at work! I am truly happy you are saving your money!! And it does probably taste better...and more satisfying.
