$950 deficit on my Jan. goal

December 26th, 2007 at 02:24 pm

As predicted, the dishwasher I felt was the best value overall came to $950 with installation, haul-away, 5-year warranty etc. Soo, that's on a Sears card with no interest or payments for awhile. I'll leave it there and concentrate on other debts, then pay that one off before it starts costing me interest.

That means I'm $950 behind on my January goal, as expected. So to pay off $1575 of debt by Jan. 31, I actually need to pay off $2525 in principal. Should be manageable since that's what I generally do each month.

On the upside, spanking new dishwasher, and no worries about repairs or replacement for five years! They'll even come and give it a free cleaning and general tune-up once a year.

Also, it's ENERGY STAR-certified. Is there a tax break for that? I'll have to look into it.

    Depending how often you run your dishwasher and how old the previous one was, you may see a noticeable drop in your electric and water usage, so that'll save you a few bucks.
