Finances

Ugh, pretty boring, huh? I know, but it has to be done. I have debt. That is a huge reason why I moved abroad; I couldn’t pay it down before because I was living paycheck to paycheck. But now I can and I have a lot to do. Following the steps outlined in Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover I am working on eradicating the following debt, in order from smallest bill to the largest. The last three are quite large (especially the mortgage) but I plan to complete the first six by July, 2013. The last three? Will I still be blogging then? 🙂

1. $1000 into savings   >>> done! 🙂

2. pay back salary advance  >>> done! 🙂

3. pay off American Express >>> done! 🙂

4. pay off car loan for used car I bought here >>> done! 🙂

5. repay my mom >>> done! 🙂

6. pay off Visa

7. pay off home equity line of credit

8. repay my cousin

9. pay off my mortgage on house in DC
