Update on credit card payments. Every extra penny I have is going to my last credit card balance. I've made 21 payments this month for a total of $1,406.89. I rolled and deposited all the spare change in our house. Every week any extra left in our budget categories for food, misc, or allowance goes in as a credit card payment. My payments have ranged from a low of $2.17 up to $286.01. My current credit card balance is $2655.95. I hope I can pay this off in the next two months. I'll still have debt but the credit cards will be gone and I can move on to the next debt payment goal. We still have 15 months on my DH's truck and a 401(k)loan to payoff.

I'm also saving $150.00 per month. When the savings in at $1000.00 I'll back off and include the $150.00 on debt payment.

Hi, Lisa.

I'm still around. Just not posting as often. Still doing Flylady and debt reduction. You actually started my serious budget and debt reduction plan when you recommended the book How to Get What You Want in Life with the Money You Already Have by Carol Keeffe. I started out focused on saving but changed a little because I know I want to be debt free. So now I'm saving some and paying more on debts.
