We have made some HUGE strides over the past couple of months: We paid off (OFF. ZERO.) a Chase credit card that for many years had a five figure balance.
Which means that we're down to only two cards, one of which we've managed to knock down to under $5000. Which means that in a couple of months, that one will be zero too. Which means, that after all this time, I can see a light at the end of the tunnel.
We're buckling down right now. While our friends are asking about summer plans, and going to exciting places like Hawaii and Europe... we're staying home this summer. We're taking little (re:cheap) camping trips. We're saving our money, we're putting off big purchases, we're being mindful of what we're spending. Our answer is the same, again and again:
"We're focused on paying off our debt right now."
God-willing, it will pay off, and we'll be debt-free with the exception of the mortgage by the end of 2014. Until then, it's still plug plug plug.
Total debt for April:
Down by $1226.96
