of everyone here!
We have paid off $9K from the mortgage and $5K from our car loans since Jan. But, it was a struggle to do this. We already live frugally. I got a huge promotion at work - and it's mostly eaten by the higher cost of commuting.
AND we just found out that we'll be assessed $28K on our t/house. We are going to be almost $13K more in debt than we started the year.
We are trying really hard and losing ground. This sucks!
We have basic cable, no cellphones, cheap food options (I buy bulk, make homemade, etc)...we've even cut eating out to this past two weeks. (I have signed up to do free audits at McDonalds so the kids can get free meals there ) We both do side jobs for extra income...
There is just nothing else we can do. I have to accept that this is not "our time"...and I hate accepting there is nothing I can do. Hence my jealousy. But I will happily live vicariously through everyone on here and cheer you on. But I won't have snowflakes or goals (it's too depressing!).
