Just wanted to make a quick update on my personal finance progress for the month of September, since the month closes out tomorrow.
This is the first month in a long time that I did not pull out a credit card. I was able to cash flow all incidentals/extras out of my waitressing money. Yay! However, next month I need to be a lot more strict when it comes to sending waitressing money toward debt–after all, that’s the whole point of it.
I updated my Best Buy Thermometer so that you can see how much I have paid off, and how much is left to go.
How do you eat an elephant? One spoonful at a time. The only way I will pay off all my consumer debt is little by little. I didn’t get in this mess overnight, so getting out of it can’t happen overnight either.
