After being so deligent for six months, this is the first week where I didn't put the full amount I had been toward debt repayment.

That all sounds like great forward momentum, great job!

Yes, paying off debt is addicting!! At least it is a positive addiction.

PB, I am lucky that we don't need AC too much here in the NW. :) Well, that is a general statement, as it depends where you live, but unless someone runs their AC like they do their heat, your utility bill goes down. My summer low is $100 less than my winter high.

We only have a window AC for our bedroom, and when we do use it, I still keep it a bit warm so going in and out is not so extreme and the bill doesn't skyrocket.

Just an idea.

I would not call that bad at all!

Congratulations! Do let us know when your chickens hatch.

I'm also hoping for cheaper utilities, but the summer is coming. The AC will probably drive up the cost.

I still consider this a victory, for the simple fact that you know how much money was supposed to go towards one goal and has now been redirected to pay cash for something else. Before you were on this journey, would you have noticed? Would you have paid cash to spruce up your house? Would your house even be on the market? You have come so far, don't be so tough on yourself. You will no doubt make up for it, and then some!

ETA - congrats on your DH getting a promotion and raise! That is excellent news!
