Last week I wrote about starting a spending diet and it starts today! My bank account skyrocketed with my paycheck first thing this morning and I balanced out my budget accordingly. Every fund is accounted for and I’ve already transferred $125 straight to my credit card. It’s exciting to see that number go down!

I confess I dipped into different funds to cover various expenses this past pay period. But that terrible habit stops today. I have what I have and I won’t spend a penny more, no matter if the money is “there” and I can “pay myself back”.

Starting point:

Credit Card Debt (after today’s payment) – $2691.53

Savings – $64.22

Spending – $60

*I’m not including all my other student loan debt because I’m focussing on one thing at a time.

Weekly updates to follow! I think I can, I think I can!

  1. good for you!! eric and i focused on paying off our credit card debt, then car loan, and finally student loans…which is what ‘m paying off now. we have other expenses that creep up that we have to pay, such as both of us going back to school, so I’m not killing myself to get rid of the loans. it’s gonna take us a while.
