52 Week Challenge More Progress

January 31st, 2015 at 10:15 pm

Previous Balance: $407.00

Today I paid several payments to the credit card from different sources.

$37.48 (dh's payment to the credit card)
$40.00 (regular cc payment - I will pay more)
$12.00 (dividend from my savings account)

New Balance: $496.48

Also, on Thursday, we had window installers at our house to install another new window. Woo-Hoo! It is wonderful to have new windows, but not go into debt to pay for them. We already have enough money to pay for another window, but we may wait for a little while on the next one.

52 Week Challenge So Far

Hi, everyone. I get paid tomorrow and am trying to make a go of the 52 week challenge, but am getting a late start. So, I went through my records to get an idea of all my stuff that qualifies for my challenge.

1/2 paycheck
$17.00 deposit to car savings
$17.00 deposit to house savings
$100.00 deposit to professional savings
$1.00 deposit to AAA/car tax savings
$5.00 deposit to escrow savings
$40.00 deposit to regular savings

1/30 paycheck
$10.00 deposit to house savings
$10.00 deposit to car savings
$40.00 deposit to regular savings
$145.00 deposit to professional savings
$22.00 deposit to slush

That means my 52 Week Challenge Balance is $407.00.

While my real goal with the 52 Week Challenge is to pay off cc #1, I have not put any payments on this list. The balance on the margin is not the real balance because I had to use it again recently, so the balance is higher. I also have a goal to attend a professional conference in June this year, so I am ramping up what I am setting aside for that. I plan on doing lots of surveys, buying and selling used books, and whatever else I can do to raise the extra cash I need to accomplish my goals.

Cheers to the 52 Week Challenge!
