Okay, so I've decided to get serious about paying off my car. Its a do-able payment, but I still hate having it. We have come into some extra money this month (Army finally paid us for moving in May.) All bills are paid (to include extras, its been one of those months.) And since its been one of those months, I'm not sure what exactly to do.


We normally put 100 a month in a car fund, for maintance. DH just needs to get his oil change and we are good. Last month we blew threw the envelope due to my oil change, and dh needing a new windshield. I believe

Wow, a 9k emergency fund is great!!

Maybe put $250 apiece in the vet fund and car fund and use the other $300 for an extra car payment? I didn't see you mention anything else about the baby fund. If that's the case maybe pay a little less into the vet and car fund (maybe $50 apiece?) and leave yourself $100 towards the baby fund.

Just some thoughts :)

I would work on getting the car repair fund back into place first.
