|Debt||July 1, 2013||September 1, 2013||Difference|
As you can see, I’ve paid off just less than 1500 in debt in the last two months. This also brings my total debt paid off from January 1st to $6,578.84. It’s a bit less than originally anticipated… I had intended to have the surgery center paid off by September 1st, but with everything that happened with my Grandma, the debt repayment money from the first paycheck of August went towards eating at the hospital or meals out with family, and clothes for the funeral. Plus, I’ll admit, some additional unnecessary spending just because.
I’m definitely making forward progress. The surgery center should be paid off with my next paycheck. After that, the Chase card is the next on the list for payoff, though I may slow down the debt repayment for a bit while I make plans for Christmas. I’ve also thought about splitting the difference between debt repayment and savings going forward. I’ve been diverting a very small amount to savings as is, but not much because I’ve been so single-mindedly focused on debt repayment. As usual, I haven’t decided yet, so we’ll see how I feel about it when I get there. That’s the personal part or personal finance!
