Combined Debt: 2007 Starting Point

NOTE: This list was made at the beginning of getting our finances combined and in order. There were probably some clerical errors, since this beginning number doesn't match up with my (religiously and accurately tracked) total debt paid off. But it's the only historical snapshot I saved from those chaotic days, so I thought I should copy it here for posterity.

PS: Found a May 2007 debt total that didn't count the trip to England or any of NT's current or future debt. By adding the July numbers for those two debts with this May number, I estimate my debt starting point in May 2007 (which was likely the time that our debt was at its biggest ever) to be $460,698.
