Chase Freedom payments and future focuses

July 22nd, 2015 at 06:17 am

I just made a $400 payment bringing the balance to 1165. I have another $30 to put to it as soon as I make it to the bank to cash the check. I'm also expecting my little brother to pay $200 of his $1000 deposit this Friday bringing the balance to $935. Depending on how our pet expenses shake out in the remainder of July, I should be able to put another $100-$300 paid back from our joint account. That plus next month's $500 payment and any additional paybacks should wipe out the Chase Freedom card!

At that point, my attention will be split 3 ways - Las Vegas savings, wedding savings, and Chase Slate. The Vegas trip is in October which will only give me 2 months to save as much as I can. The goal is 2k. If it's any less, then we will just have to eat/sightsee with whatever I have saved up. My mom is bringing her own gambling money this time, so that will help considerably. Chase Slate is at $645 which I could easily knock out in 2-3 months if it were my only focus. The goal will be the end of the year since it's at 0%. Wedding savings will be $100-$200 these next few months and will become my main focus starting in November.

    Nice work! You are getting there. It does take longer when there other demands on your money. How long do you have to save for the wedding?

    CCF, not long at all! We haven't officially booked the date yet, but we're looking at April/May 2016. We've talked to both sets of parents and while we're certainly trying to cover the majority of it ourselves, they will both be helping (probably more than either of us would like).

    I'd say you do have a fair amount of time. If it was still 2015, I'd expect the savings would be more difficult. Good luck with the savings!

    Sounds like a great plan!
