Accountability 1/21
Mon, 01-21-2013 - 8:55am

How was everyone's weekend? I was home sick for most of it which meant too much eating out (to the tune of $75 over the weekend!) So now I have $40 unti Friday but limited food options. Oh well, My own fault. I'll have to stock up on some essentials!

I also bought a bath mat and furnace filters. $25 from the house fund.

So my debt is as follows:

Car Loan as of 01/14/2013: 6895.94

Car Loan as of 01/21/2013: 6764.19

Difference: $131.75

Student Loan as of 01/14/2013: $19,050.21

Student Loan as of 01/21/2013: $19,068.62

Difference: + $18.41 (this is because interest is calculated daily. I made the payment on Friday so it will show up at next week's check in :)

HELOC as of 01/14/2013: 12,369.56

HELOC as of 01/21/2013: 12,098.16

Difference: $271.40

Total debt as of Jan 6, 2013: $38,592.31

Total debt as of Jan 14, 2013: $38,315.71

Total debt as of Jan 21, 2013: $37,930.97

Difference from last week: $$384.74

Difference from start of year: $661.34

I also have $1125 in my efund and $1300 in my sinking funds. I am going to make 2013 the year of the debt wipe out!

Looking good Bex!

I worked most of the weekend and had a fish fry for my in laws Sunday night. I spent  $7.00 on allowance for the boys. I just didn't have much cash on me, but turns out they went to their grandparents anyway. I will give them more next week. 

$500 extra on the roof loan. 

Have a great frugal week everyone.
