December goal reached!

December 17th, 2007 at 03:24 pm

A UK credit card payment posted--$194 went to principal, which means I reached my December goal!

Goal: $2525
Results: $2571!

I will wait a bit before posting my January goal--have to figure out how much this dishwasher's going to set me back!

PS: I just realized this marks the sixth month that I have set an aggressive debt-repayment goal and met it!

    Very good! Does it feel like habit yet, or still like a forced action?

    Thanks guys! I know I'm just starting but I feel very good right now. Joan, it definitely feels like a habit to me. Though I'm one of three adults who get an equal say, so it can be hard sometimes. They're on board with my repayment plan, but when we get an extra windfall of unexpected money, they tend to want to have fun with it, while my idea of fun would be to sock it away for future expenses or throw it at some debt! We usually come to a compromise where half gets divvied up as fun money and the other half I get to use for future planning or debt repayment. I don't get to be as miserly as I want to be, but they're much better than other family members I've heard people despairing over, so I feel pretty lucky!

    I don't think I'll stay super-frugal my whole life, but I want to always have control and never again spend more than I can afford. I'll probably always keep to a budget, but maybe a budget that's a little more generous (once we can afford it).

    You're right for wanting to save all the extras
