$20K Update

August 9th, 2011 at 01:01 am

I hate to do this....but need to keep the numbers correct. I tried to stay ahead of the car repair bill, but just couldn't dodge that big of an extra bill.
Then the checking account was very low before we paid August mortgage and I should have not put as much extra towards principle as normal, and instead I put even more cause the call of $128K had me in a trance. So we were already short and then I paid the extra $600 to the mortgage...oh well at least it went to a good place.
And lastly.....we went on a little congrats to DH trip this weekend. It was very spur of the moment, but we wanted to do something fun for DH getting the head coaching job since his nights and weekends will be pretty much full until the end of October. So we spent $500 there too.
UGH - Down $1800 total, but I am hoping we will have that paid back to savings very quickly.

Current Balance $14,225.00
-$500.00 June car repair
-$800.00 To checking/mortgage principle
-$500.00 DH congrats trip
New Balance $12,425.00

ING $7965.00
Home Improvements(cash) $160.00
Cash $300.00
HSBC $4000.00
Total = $12,425.00

    Looking forward to you breaking $15k

    I think it is great that you took the time and expense to celebrate your DH's new coaching gig for the season, that was cool of you. I find that if I don't (somehow) celebrate the good stuff that happens, then it can lead to it seeming a little bit less exciting, in a way. As HousingCounselor mentioned, I think that you will have some insurance of breaking the 15k barrier before long if you stay focused! Good luck...
