$699.82 starting balance
- $256.59 snowball payment
+ $8.67 interest
- $164.00 contract paycheck
= $287.90 current balance (82% paid)
Total paid in October: $999.37 If I had realized we were that close to an even thousand, I would have found the extra 63 cents! Oh, well.
I didn't even realize we could find that much money to send the credit card company. A good portion of that money is from my contract job so it's too bad that my hours are so unpredictable. It will be hard to duplicate months like October because I can't predict my hours and I am paid a month after completing the work.
Woohoo!! Another week and that credit card will be gone! Adios. Sayonara. We don't ever want to see you again!
We've also reached another milestone. Our consumer debt is now 50% paid. We owe about $21,000 but we've paid just over $21,000. The numbers are way too big and each month doesn't make much of a dent. But we're at the half way point and are slowly chipping away at it!
