Short Post – update on the debt monster…

on April 21, 2013

This will be a short post today, but the debt monster continues to be punched in the face by yours truly. I have managed to get it all below $120k right now, just a little over $119k (keep in mind, this includes the mortgage). The total amount between the college loan and car loan sits at around $17k.

The budget continues to be a struggle. Even though I splurged on eating out a couple of times this month, it appears that I will fall below what I spent last month. This is something I’m very excited about and look forward to doing even better in May.

On a separate note, Mother Nature decided to play a cruel joke on us this weekend. After teasing us with temps in the low 80’s last week, we’ve had 2 days with highs in the low to mid 60’s. It’s not really bad – but definitely a change after seeing 80’s.

Lastly, I want to reach out to anyone who had friends or family affected by the Boston Marathon bombing or the fertilizer plant explosion outside of Waco TX. My heart goes out to you and your families.

Again – thanks for the support from everyone and I wish you all a calm week full of all things good and joyful
