Okay so this is really late but I wanted to update my numbers :)

I had a REALLY spendy weekend. I spent $900!! Eek. Nothing was necessary but I had saved the money in my fun account so it was set aside.

I bought two bar stools for my counter, a condo sized Christmas tree, and a few things I was out of (makeup, toilettries etc). The good news is I sold my winter tires for my old car ($400 picking it up later this week), I am getting a refund for my car insurance ($110 this week) refund for my license plate ($50) and a refund for my water heater ($40). I am going to use this to build up the fun sinking fund :)

So all in all things are going well, especially when I compare to where I started this year:

Car Loan as of 01/06/2013 : $6895.94

Car Loan as of 11/14/2013: $0


Student Loan as of 01/06/2013: $19,306.43

Student Loan as of 11/14/2013: $11,567.11


HELOC as of 01/06/2013: $12,389.94

HELOC as of 11/14/2013: $0


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

Total debt as of Nov 14, 2013: $11,567.11

Difference: $27,025.20

My goals is to pay another $3K by end of year so I can say I paid off over $30K of debt in 2013!!! Fingers crossed for me!!!

Grat job Bex!

I don't know what I spent last weekend, but I did buy a $5.00 Starbucks Groupon worth $10. 

Almost impossible for me to track medical bills.  Pretty much an ongoing thing, but I will say that one I have been paying on for over a year is almost gone.
