Credit Card Debt Repayment













:D I just got my paystub for tomorrow's pay. I've got enought $$ from my OT to put an additional $300 towards my visa (as promised). So as of 12:01am tonight, or rather tomorrow morning - I will owe about $940 on my credit card! 8 weeks after that the debt WILL BE GONE!

On top of that, my grandma gave me a little $$ for my birthday. What that means is I have $150 for my jars for July 24th to August 6th and $150 for August 7th to August 20th. Plus, after next pay period I should have $150 left over to cover any additional horse-related costs. So Yay Me! I do have 10 hours banked, and I'll probably be able to put in an additional 10 next week that I can request to be paid out the following week. I'm happy this morning!

My Mantra for the next few weeks: do not use your credit card, do not use your credit card, do not use your credit card....there, hopefully that helps.

  2. That OT definitely paid off. I might have missed it but when are you starting your magic jars?

  4. @MPP - Thanks! I'm soo looking forward to it. The encouragement I get from comments and reading other blogs has been great!

    @Jolie - At first I thought that I wouldn't be able to start until August - but now I think I can start tomorrow (payday)!! Which is pretty exciting. I have the jars all set up in room, and I'll have enough cash!

    @Jamie - Thanks!! I can almost feel it now, it will be amazing to have this credit card paid off!

  5. It's very exciting to start. I made little labels and it was great fun to stuff each jar. I made envelopes to put any of the extra money left over each week. It can add up some months and then I used most of it for a snowflake. Have fun!

    I like the idea of putting the extra $$ in a separate place! Though, I suppose there are arguments for carrying $$ over, or for putting it in a separate Jar/envelope. I'll have to figure that out soon.
