Not sure if I'm allowed to post links here, but I've been using this great excel debt reduction calculator that I downloaded for free http://www.vertex42.com/Calculators/...alculator.html. I'm not too tech savvy, but I was able to figure this out and it's great for my motivation. I'm currently paying $750/month on the cards, which would have us paid off in roughly 36 months, but by playing around with the spreadsheet I found out that if I can increase my income enough to pay $1,200 a month then we'll be paid off in only 20 months, and what's more we'll saveover $4,000 in interest! So hopefully we'll be able to make that work.

Expecting #2 in late June!

Ho Hum..

Just trying to get back into the game here...

Have been getting lazy with tracking and budgeting, and I've been spending/shopping to boot!

Anyways, just trying anything to motivate myself so here I am again!
