This month was pretty spectacular. We are so thankful that we got one more amazing month before the actual slowdown hits.
We had very little ‘extra’ income this month. No Craigslist sales.
This month’s budgeting was a little tight as the way refueling fell in the calendar – we both needed gas for our vehicles on the 29th, pushing us over that line item. We had out-of-town company for a handful of days – but were pretty pleased that we were able to save on the other weeks so as to eat out with our company and not go over on the food budget. We were under by an entire $7. 🙂
As far as progress – like I mentioned, the slowdown hasn’t hit yet so when some large jobs finished up (having already prepared for the next few slow months) we were able to make the FIRST EVER above minimum on our last remaining Major Debt – my grad school student loan.
Without further ado – the numbers:
We won a $100 Amex gift card
Extra Debt paid: $3,794
Total Debt paid in May: $4,040*
Since 1/1/2012 – Total Debt Paid off: $21,499*
*For the purpose of Baby step 2 we are not factoring in our home mortgage
