June Update

June is - thankfully - over, which means so ends our month of no extra spending.  It ended up being both easier and harder than I thought, and it was a good month to choose to do it too... our debt would have barely come down otherwise.  We managed to pay off a few stragglers, and are left with exactly four debts:

A mortgage, a second mortgage, and two credit cards. 

That's it!  We can do this, right?! 

Next order of business is to get in as good a shape as possible for two back-to-back trips:  One to a conference in Texas at the end of August, and one a two-week long road trip at the end of September.  They will of course prove to be setbacks as far as debt reduction (even road-trips are NOT CHEAP) but the goal is to do it with as small amount of financial impact as possible... while still having an excellent time.  We've done it before, and I know we can do it again.

Total debt for June:
Down by $1572.57
