Life... debt... reality (long post)

March 16th, 2013 at 08:44 am

Since my last post a lot of medical has happened. My yearly exam had a lot of yuck, which means a lot of new medical bills. Surgery asap(hyst) which means I have to really focus on the bills and house in orderSmile

Our debt is as follows:
Car loan 1: 11,200
Car loan 2: 13,500
Amex: 7,800
Sears 1: 4,000
Sears 2: 1,200
Best Buy 1: 2,000
Best Buy 2: 600
Kohls: 400
Nordstroms: 800
Medical: 2,000

ugly, isn't it? but, it is finally out in the open...
More details on the plan to pay it off.

5 years later, finally focusing on our debt...

So much has happened in the past 5 years. I had hoped to be out of debt. That didn't happen. Probably because I didn't plan for it to happen. Haphazardly paid bills, didn't save when I should have, and life happened.
The good news is that I finally opened a new checking/savings account with automatic deposit to savings. And have set up a budget to finally get rid of the credit cards. I have to figure out how to do the sidebars and will update the rather nasty details of our debt, but feel so much better about at least acknowledging the issue! And my husband is on boardSmile
