All About Me :)

March 19th, 2014 at 08:39 am

Hi Everyone!

I'm new to blogging so be gentle Smile I recently made the decision to buckle down on my finances. After creating the dreaded 'B' word and working up some scenarios, I've given myself the aggressive, but attainable, goal of being debt-free by 30 (gives me almost 3 years). I'm pretty open, so I will be posting full numbers and would appreciate any feedback/help I can get. My blogging goal is 3 posts/week, so feel free to hold me accountable on that too.

I've been working on this aggressively since January (I started in November, but we all know how the holidays can derail things: finances, weight, work, etc...) and am happy to say that I've paid off my credit card (1500) and gotten my car under 10000 (originally 13000). And since no story's complete without failures, I will say they upon discovering my credit score was higher than it's ever been (720ish), I foolishly opened 2 more credit cards and took out a personal loan (more on this later). I've been good with the cards so far and they have low limits.

Next post, I'll lay out all my numbers and my broken down goals for this year.

    Welcome! I don't know any honest debt blogger who's never had a momentary setback here and there. You'll pay it off eventually and you'll feel FANTASTIC.

    Welcome to this very supportive site whose participants genuinely want you to succeed and generally offer clearly explained suggestions meant to be helpful. Should you find the 'B' word has negative connotation, you may prefer to call your money decisions as 'Cash Flow.'

    Looking forward to reading your blogs and feel confident you'll meet your goals.
