I know people say "never again" a lot, but I'm saying this right now. Never again will I get sidetracked from my financial goals. I will keep this post as a reminder. Paying for meals you ate and whatever it is you did several months later stinks.
Wanna know why? Let me show you my new budget:
Starting Balance = $1285
Credit Card - 700 :-(
Law School Loan - 200
Perkins Loan - 94
Health - 65
Gift - 60
Misc. - 167
Why yes, most of my paycheck will be going towards my stupid credit card.
How much is $700? I mean other than some numbers on a page, what does it mean to me?
With $700 I could pay off the entire law school loan balance!
With $700 I could buy an I-pad with 3G wireless!
With $700 I could spend a three day weekend with my husband in Niagara Falls!
Oh well. At this rate the debt should be gone by mid-November. I doubt I'll be getting an i-pad any time soon - though I would love to travel to Niagara Falls. Check out this deal - if you have money that is!
