First step in second month's challenge

July 22nd, 2007 at 04:55 pm

Well, the next month of my challenge doesn't technically start until July 26, but I realized I have enough money to make a small payment, so I put $200 toward principal debt. My line of credit debt is now less than $1,000!

So, $200 paid, $1,454 to go by Aug. 26.

In other good news: Our best friends' ceremony was this weekend. I had all sorts of chunks of money set aside for all our various obligations for it. Well, it looks like we got in at least $20 under budget, and that's after buying a few extra things. If the grooms remember to pay us back for those, we'll be more like $60 under budget!

Also, NT is almost certainly guaranteed a job at the place where he's temping. It should be quite a bit more money and a lot more fun for him. He's waiting to hear from another place as well, that has its own pluses. Either way, we should be a lot better off soon!

    Under budget is a good feeling!

    I know, especially considering that hardly any of my friends or my friends' friends are frugal at all, and most of the ceremony attendees I hung out with all weekend were corporate lawyers with tons and tons of (what they think of as) disposable income. I added the parenthetical note because I bet a bunch of them have at least $100K in student loan debt (based on what little I know about law school prices, and the fact that they weren't rich before they became lawyers)! I'm not one to point fingers though; I've done lots of stupid stuff with loans and credit, as is obvious from my debt load! :-) I was just glad I got away as easy as I did, what with all the different social obligations involving money that went along with the ceremony this weekend.
