September Mortgage Payoff Status
I have been MIA for the past 3 days. I was busy working and we did a quick day trip to Santa Barbara to get some dental work done for Husband. If you are new here, this is our visual aid for our mortgage payoff. Every black piece represents a sum of money towards our debt. We take a piece off every time we reach the dollar value of a black piece. Let’s get to it:
In the beginning, June 2011:
August of 2012:
September of 2012, we were able to take one piece off:
What a month it’s been! Here were our different struggles this month and the different reasons we had to access our emergency fund. BOOOO!!!!!!:
*I lost and found our cash envelope system….that was a close one!
*Husband started having a lot of dental pain which led us to go to the dentist and two trips to the route canal specialist.
*Husband’s dinosaur computer decided to die one month before he graduates with his bachelor’s degree. How convenient!
*Nurse Frugal went approximately $12 OVER her recreation category (totally my fault……and not cool ;( ), and as usual I ate every little bit of my money. What can I say? It tastes good 😉
Struggles I anticipate this next month:
*Preparing for a half marathon, therefore less time to work and more money that needs to be spent (on half marathon stuff.)
*More dental bills.
My Recreation Money….Where did it go?
In my stomach 😉
$12.98-“Jalapeno’s” Mexican food
$18.06-“El Campeon”, lunch with friend
$27.24-“Guppy House”, dinner with friend
$13.57- 5 Guys….totally worth it!
$42 cash…..where did it go?
$3.57-Itunes….I do know how to spend my money on something else besides food 😉
Thanks for stopping by! Would love to hear your thoughts!
