Third Quarter Report

Here we go...

In the last three months, I have:
  • paid off 974.00 worth of credit card debt
  • saved 1279.00 for emergencies, oil and Christmas presents (900 for emergencies, 250 for oil and 120 for Christmas)
  • paid 964.00 off on my car loan/personal loan from the credit union
  • paid off 322.00 off of my student loans

While this isn't great, it's not bad either. If you add it all up, I'm 3,539.00 better off than I was on July 1st. Okay, that makes me feel better. The credit card and student loans numbers really bummed me out, because let me tell you, I paid a lot more than that, these are after interest numbers. And for the credit cards, I actually paid off 1394.00, but I had to put a few work expenses on a card, and I should be getting reimbursed for those. Just in case I don't, though, I included that debt in the totals.

This post is my 181st post on this blog, and that counts for something, too. My hit counter is at about 13,000, and I get roughly 60 visits a day. That's incredible, and keeps me very motivated.

All in all, not bad.

Congratulations! You should be proud of yourself for all you accomplished in the third quarter. What are your numbers for year-to-date?

$3539 is freaking CRAZY awesome for just 3 months. When you total everything at the year, it is going be such a cause for celebration.

I really liked the post about how you've switched from fears to dreams. That is one part of being debt-free that I have come to love.

I love that you get 60 hits a day!!! I've told you before, but you really are such an inspiration! I want to change my answer on the poll: I think you should continue the blog next year AND write a book!
