September was terrific!
As I’ve mentioned before, the small business has picked up considerably the last few months. Because the baby was on the way, and we had gone such a long period with the business being slow, we chose to be extremely cautious. Even with understanding the debt snowball was on hold and we were functioning with the ‘crisis fund’ plan, we still decided to limit how much we drew monthly from the business.
All of this to say, we have decided it is now ok to free up additional funds. That’s where our extra money for debt comes from this month.
We are getting so close! It is realistic to believe that we will be Debt Free by the end of the year.
Without further adieu, here are the numbers:
Extra Debt paid: $5,000
Total Debt paid in September: $5,246
Since 1/1/2012 – Total Debt Paid off: $41, 019*
