Can I join?
I haven't read the book but like what I see as far as the process.
Last night sat down looked at our bills and where the money was going...it was food! I was spending WAY more then I thought
So far this is what I have written down( copied this list from another member here...hope thats ok):
FOOD: 03/08 (860.01)
Dining Out: 263.09
FOOD: 04/08 (616.58) so far...
Dining Out: 86.08
Car payment: 228.18
Gas: 150.52 ( i'm ok with this so far)
SO needless to say we are working on packing lunches and upping the food bill so we can lower it over all..so far the "budget" for that was $400 a month...so I'm going to up it to $600 a month ( and set a fun food budget) and see if we can lower it from there.
We are gluten and dairy free so we are eating allot of expensive food :
After we get food under control we are going to work on paying off the CC...
That is awesome!!
Okay, so I totally forgot to update our situation. We paid off the one credit card thanks to my whole paycheck hitting it and most of our tax refund. We were hoping to use the rest of the tax refund to throw at the other cc, but our cat got even sicker and we had to take him back to the vet My poor little furry baby! This is the second time in two weeks He had to have xrays, medication, shots, etc. He is better now, but it was $200. I am okay with it, because at least we had the money. But I was a twinge bit dissapointed that the rest of our refun was spent on something other than the cc bill. Of course I love my furguy and his health was worth every penny.
But, I get paid again Friday so am am gearing up to launch another snow assault on the cc. I hope it fears me
So it is normal that when you pay off a CC you get a letter in the mail from them increasing your credit limit by a ridiculous amount?? : I was annoyed by that. Like, I paid it OFF for a REASON. We don't USE IT anymore
